The Preakness Stakes is coming up quickly as we get deeper into the spring. The annual “Run for the Black-Eyed Susans” will be held this year on Saturday, May 15. One of the biggest horse races of the year in the US, the Preakness is also one of the most wagered-on events on the sports calendar. This year’s big race at Pimlico should garner more betting interest than last year’s race, which was pushed to October due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, online Preakness Stakes betting is now legal in 33 states if you bet with TVG. Bet on the 2021 Preakness Stakes at TVG by signing up here and you’ll get a Risk-Free bet up to $300.
