How to Get Rich Betting on the Preakness Stakes in 2019

The 2019 Preakness Stakes is taking place this Saturday on May 18, 2019, at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland. Here is a list of the best ways for you to possibly get rich betting on the 2019 Preakness Stakes.



The key to betting the Preakness and trying to get rich is to get the most bang for your money. Try to bet the least amount of money that can end up paying you the most amount of money.

As you can see below some of the payouts for $1 or $2 bets in Preakness Stakes history have been spectacular. Why not try and and hit one of those $1 or $2 bets this year that could potentially make you rich.


How to Get Rich Betting on the Preakness Stakes in 2019


1. Bet the Pentafecta or Super Hi 5

The pentafecta or Super Hi 5 is a relatively new bet and it offers the best opportunity in 2019 to get rich betting on the Preakness if the field is large enough to offer the bet this year.

To win the pentafecta or Super Hi 5 you must pick the first five horses in exact order in a race. That is not an easy task but if you win the bet you will likely go home rich.

In the 2017 Preakness Stakes the pentafecta paid a whopping $283,233.40 for each $1 winning ticket. The Super High 5 for the Preakness has paid an average of $84,000 for each winning $1 bet since the wager was introduced in 2009.

Why not bet your five favorite numbers for $1 in the 2019 Preakness? Or bet your birthday. If you were born on January 6, 1954, you could bet a 6-1-9-5-4 pentafecta for $1 and maybe get super lucky and get rich.



2. Bet the Superfecta

To win a superfecta bet you have to have the first four finishers in a race in exact order. Another tough bet to win but if you do hit it you can get rich.

In the 2017 Preakness, the superfecta paid $8,162.80 for each $1 winning ticket.

The highest paying Preakness superfecta paid a lot more money than last year's payout. Check out the list of the Top 10 Highest Paying Superfectas in Preakness Stakes History


3. Bet the Trifecta

To win the trifecta you need to have the first three finishers in a race in exact order. A much easier bet to win than the pentafecta or superfecta but this bet can still pay you a lot of money if you hit it.

Last year the trifecta paid $2,194.60 for each winning $2 bet. Check out the list of the Top 10 Highest Paying Trifectas in Preakness Stakes History

PGA Golf Prize Money Up for Grabs at the 2019 PGA Championship

The 2019 PGA Championship golf major tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from May 16-19, 2019, at the Black Course (Bethpage Black) at Bethpage State Park located in Farmingdale, New York. Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs this week for the PGA golfers at the 2019 PGA Championship.



The PGA Championship dates back to 1916. It is one of the four majors in golf and any PGA golfer would love to win this event. Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus jointly hold the record for most wins with five each. Tiger Woods has won this event four times, while Gene Sarazen and Sam Snead have three wins each.

Total prize money up for grabs at the 2019 PGA Championship is $11 million. That's the same amount of prize money that was up for grabs in this golf major last year.

The 2019 Players Championship purse was $12.5 million and it is absolutely shocking the PGA is not offering at least the same prize money for its own golf major. This is exactly why the PGA Championship is the least popular of the four majors in golf. Instead of treating its own major as its flagship event the PGA treats the Players Championship as if it is more important. It's not to the vast majority of golf fans.

Players who miss the cut at the 2019 PGA Championship are each getting $3,100. For the 2019 PGA Championship that includes Tiger Woods who missed the cut by one stroke.
