    The post positions for the 2013 Preakness Stakes were announced Wednesday evening. This year's favorite, Orb, will look to continue his Triple Crown run when he makes his start from Gate 1. Entering the draw at even odds, his stock could drop for Saturday. The rail has traditionally been a difficult position to win from.Departing and Goldencents -- 5/1 and 7/1 odds, respectively -- will run from Gates 4 and 2. Oxbow got the coveted Gate 6, and may see his 14/1 odds improve as a result.Here's the full Preakness Stakes draw:1. Orb2. Goldencents3. Titletown Five4. Departing5. Mylute6. Oxbow7. Will Take Charge8. Governor Charlie9. ItsmyluckydayExpect Orb to remain clear favorite to win the race. The fact that trainer Todd Pletcher chose not to run any of the five horses he entered in the Kentucky Derby shouldn't hurt. Itsmyluckday (Gate 9) and Mylute (Gate 5) also figure to once again be strong challengers, both currently at 9/1 odds.The 138th Preakness Stakes will be run Saturday. Coverage begins at 4:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Check out <a href="http://www.anddownthestretchtheycome.com/" >And Down The Stretch They Come</a> for complete coverage and analysis of the race.

    This is a pretty weak field that Orb is facing so he should roll home here but I cant bet on a horse at this short of odds.I will use him in exactas and trifectas to try and make a buck or 2.

    Yes, that's true Tony. He's gotta be in there for sure. I'll be making my same exacta boxed bet with 5 horses again. LOL 5 out of 9 horses. I better win something. I know it won't be as much as the Kentucky Derby but anything over the $20 is easy money!

    Exacta BoxesThe second and most popular exacta wagering strategy is an exacta box combining 2 or more horses to finish first or second in either order. Generally offered in a minimum denomination of $1, an exacta box of horses 3-4 would represent 2 possible combinations 3-4 and 4-3, at a cost of $2. The cost of a $1 exacta box correlates directly to the number of horses and possible combinations in the box.For example, a $1 exacta box of 3 horses (2-3-4) represents 6 possible $1 winning combinations that include 2-3, 2-4, 3-4, 3-2, 4-2 and 4-3. While any of these combinations would allow you to cash a ticket, keep in mind that your payout would be only half of the actual $2 straight exacta payout, because you played a $1 box.A box can be played in any denomination of $1 or more, but the higher the denomination played, the higher the cost. A $2 exacta box of the same three horses (2-3-4) would cost $12, twice as much as a $1 exacta box, but would also offer the full $2 exacta payout as displayed on the tote board.To determine the cost of a $1 exacta box take the number of horses you want to box and multiply that number by the number of horses in the box minus 1. A $1 exacta box of four horses would be calculated as 4 * (4-1) * $1 = $12, which equates to 12 $1 exacta bets.Below are some additional exacta box calculations with costs:· $1 exacta box of 3 horses = 3 * (3-1) = 6 combinations * $1= $6· $1 exacta box of 4 horses = 4 * (4-1) = 12 combinations * $1 = $12· $1 exacta box of 5 horses = 5 * (5-1) = 20 combinations * $1 = $20· $1 exacta box of 6 horses = 6 * (6-1) = 30 combinations * $1 = $30· $1 exacta box of 7 horses = 7 * (7-1) = 42 combinations * $1 = $42· $1 exacta box of 8 horses = 8 * (8-1) = 56 combinations * $1 = $56You can box as many horses as you like in an exacta, but this is not generally a wise betting strategy simply because all of the horses in the box do not have the same chance of finishing first or second.In most, but not all cases, exacta boxes represent poor value, but because they are relatively easy to understand, mentally easier to play (you dont have to pick the horses in exact order) and offer the greatest probability of cashing a ticket (even at a loss), they are the most popular method of playing exactas.Because exacta boxes rate each combination in the box as having the exact same probability of winning (which is never the case) they produce inefficiencies in the exacta betting pools. It is these inefficiencies that smart bettors look for and try to take advantage of.

    Here is the payout listing for the top three horses:<table style="margin:0px;padding:0px;border:0px;font-size:15.555556297302246px;vertical-align:baseline;border-collapse:collapse;width:320px;color:#373737;font-family:'Droid Sans', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;line-height:23.99305534362793px;height:83px;" ><tbody style="margin:0px;padding:0px;border:0px;font-size:15.555556297302246px;vertical-align:baseline;background-color:transparent;">Horse Win Place Show Oxbow$32.80$12.00$6.80Itsmyluckyday-$7.80$5.00Mylute--$5.20 <em style="margin:0px;padding:0px;border:0px;font-size:15.555556297302246px;vertical-align:baseline;background-color:transparent;"> Exacta: (6-9) paid $301.40; Trifecta: (6-9-5) paid $2,061.40; $1 Superfecta: (6-9-5-1) paid $1,817.80.Oxbow was a long shot and won! I won half of the Exact payout of $301.40. Since it was a $1 Exacta bet I placed, I get half. So $150.70! :clap:I kind of did the same thing as I did for the Kentucky Derby. I had put in my list #6 as Governor Charlie (he was #8). My friend corrected me before I bet. So I said screw it. #6 Oxbow was calling my name! I added #8 Gov Charlie into my bet for another $10 instead of betting another ticket leaving #6 out and adding #8. Either way I would have won! In the last 2 weeks, $70 worth of wagers in the KD and the PS and I have walked away with $650 because of long shots! Not bad for some horse racing fun!

    Thanks Pam!As you can see, I had the Trifect and the Superfecta too! Ugh, I wish I would bet that high but can't seem to do it. $60 on one ticket for a Trifecta? But that would have paid me good! Should I chance it for the Belmont which runs June 8th? I don't know. lol But that race will pay higher than the Preakness. The Derby and the Belmont bring in more than the Preakness.

    Very nice.I had the exacta as well but if the 5 would have finished 2nd then I would of hit the tri but the ex. was nice.Yeah it would have cost you $60 for a trifecta ticket with those same horses so I understand you not doing it but afterwards it does stink when you woulda won.On to the Belmont and that almost always pays very nicely.

    That's awesome, Tony! :bigclap:So you had the #6 also? Well, you had to have if you won. lol So if the 5 would have finished 2nd then I would of hit the tri , does that mean you didn't box it? You can box a tri, can't you? I'm not an expert and am sure you know a heck of a ton more than me about racing.

     Yes I had the 6 in the gimmicks  but I play my tickets a bit different.I had the 5 to win on a separate bet..which lost ofc but I played 5-6/5-6/all  in the tri which cost only $14(Lost) and did the exacta with 4 horses boxed (2-5-6-9)which cost $24 for a $2 bet.I ain't complaining but as a typical gambler its the shoulda, woulda, coulda thinking after the race.

    Oh yeah, the bets that are the whatever over the whatever or the all's. I have made a few of those types of bets playing dogs but they are not my usual bets. I'm still too new that I stick with straight boxed wagers. I'm surprised you didn't have Orb in your exacta.
