OTB Maryland

Situated in the heart of Maryland, horse fans flock to Pimlico Park for fantastic horse racing action. Imagine being able to attend the Preakness Stakes race, the middle jewel of the Triple Crown, at Pimilco Park. While that should be on every horse racing fans “bucket list” suffice to say, Maryland horse handicappers have it pretty good. Remember, when it comes to the Triple Crown, the dream is always still alive when the horses head to Old Hilltop for the People’s Party!

Off Track Betting Locations in Maryland

Not only do Maryland pony punters have access to Preakness Day, they also live just 215 miles south of Belmont Park in New York – home of the Belmont Stakes. That’s two of three legs in the Triple Crown. What the heck, throw in Churchill Downs, which is a modest 600 mile east of Baltimore in Louisiville, and you can wager on the Kentucky Derby. Now that’s a horse players dream and certainly on our bucket list.

There is also premium thoroughbred wagering action run at the Laurel Park Racecourse, in Laurel, MD. Harness racing fans along the beltway can visit the Casino at Ocean Downs Racetrack in Berlin, MD or the Rosecroft Raceway in Oxon Hill, MD. If a trip to a live Maryland racing venue isn’t possible, gather some friends together and head out to any of the popular Off Track Betting parlors that dot the State’s landscape.
