10 horses are ready for the 2017 Preakness Stakes at Pimlico. Always Dreaming, this year’s Kentucky Derby winner, is the heavy favorite. Royal Mo, Classic Empire and Looking at Lee also have promise. Here’s my 2017 Preakness Stakes Quinella Box pick.

What are Quinella Box Bets?

Quinella Box Bet: Pick any number of horses to finish in the top 2 positions. Final order does not matter.

Bet Efficiently or Go Broke!

Quinella Boxes are more likely to win because you can pick more than 2 horses and order does not matter. A box is less efficient because you end up buying more combinations than you need. This isn’t a good long term betting strategy. It is only helpful in races like the Preakness. In races with less than 10 horses, a basic Quinella, Exacta Part Wheel, or Straight Exacta are both more efficient and profitable.

The Derby clearly separated the Men from the Boys. I was optimistic about Thunder Snow, but he couldn’t even get out of the gates last Saturday. Always Dreaming didn’t disappoint his fans with an easy win over competitors who couldn’t muster a kick. Hindsight being 20/20, I should have bet this horse, too. I was skeptical he could win against a large field with wet track conditions.

The smaller Preakness means we can be more selective without losing an edge. 10 horses narrows our choices and limits the possibility of long shots blowing up our Quinella Box.

A 4 horse Quinella Box costs $12, $2 per combination. Some tracks offer $1 Quinellas. That means your 4 horse box costs $6, $1 per combination.
