The Maryland Jockey Club is adding a Preakness Pick 3 to its wagering menu, tying together the Preakness Stakes, Friday's Pimlico Special and Saturday's Dixie Stakes.
“This is an attractive bet,” Maryland Jockey Club president Tom Chuckas said. “It features three of our six graded races on Preakness weekend. We believe it will be appealing to players around the world.”
The wager has a 50-cent minimum with a takeout of 25.75%.
Pimlico will also offer the Pimlico Special-Preakness Double. This wager has a $1.00 minimum bet amount with a takeout of 21%.
The Pimlico Jackpot Pick 5, currently with a $93,467 carryover, will be forced out on Preakness Day.
