Due to the global 'coronavirus' pandemic, the 2020 Preakness Stakes has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 3 and it will now be the final leg of the 2020 Triple Crown. It has yet to be announced if fans will be allowed to attend Pimlico Race Course for the event.

Normally, the Preakness Stakes is the second leg of the Triple Crown and the event is always held on the third Saturday in May, preceded by the Kentucky Derby and followed by the Belmont Stakes.

The Preakness Stakes is also well-known as a social gathering for a younger audience with an 'infield party' in the middle of the race course. Due to the virus, officials have canceled InfieldFest 2020 while delaying the race.

HOW TO READ THE PREAKNESS STAKES ODDS

If you’re new to betting on horses, then your starting point for placing bets is understanding the odds for any race or the largest one of them all -- the Preakness Stakes Odds.

Every horse will have betting odds listed next to their number or name and the majority of tracks and sportsbooks list their odds in fractional form. Put simply, the odds are the return that you will receive on your stake or wager on the horse if it wins the race.

The Win wager is the most popular wager in all of horse racing and you’ll cash tickets on this bet if the horse you choose finishes in first place of the race.

EX. BET $10 ON A HORSE AT 2/1 TO WIN $20
EX. BET $10 ON A HORSE AT 10/1 TO WIN $100

Bettors wagering $10 on a horse at 2/1 would receive $30 if the horse won because you’ll win $20 on the bet and then receive your initial stake in return.
