Preakness: Dime superfectas available for first time


Unlike in prior years here at Pimlico – or at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Oaks and Derby Days – superfectas are available in 10-cent increments on all races, including the Preakness.

Dime supers are part of an extensive Saturday wagering menu that also includes rolling doubles, rolling pick threes, two pick fours, two super high fives, and a pick five, as well as pool guarantees of $250,000 on the first pick four (races 5-8) and $1 million on the pick four ending with the Preakness (races 9-12).
