Whether it was John, Paul, George and Ringo getting together to form the Beatles or the famous foursomes from The Wizard of Oz, The Hangover or Ghostbusters, there’s something about quartets that has always captured the hearts and minds of millions.
Thanks to this fun-filled 2014 Preakness Stakes Superfecta Free Picks betting breakdown, now you’re going to have an outstanding chance to join the aforementioned foursomes with one of your very own.
First, let me explain what a superfecta bet is.
The superfecta is a type of wager in U.S. pari-mutuel betting in which the bettor, in order to win, must pick the first four finishers of a race in the correct sequence.
My 2014 Preakness Stakes Superfecta Picks
California Chrome 3-5
Bet against California Chrome at your own peril, This thoroughbred has won five straight races, including the Kentucky Derby earlier this month. California Chrome is also being ridden by jockey in Victor Espinoza, a veteran who won the first two legs of the Triple Crown aboard Emblem back in 2002.

Social Inclusion 5-1
Social Inclusion finished first in a pair of races before fading down the stretch to finish third at the twinspires.com Wood memorial Stakes G-1 at Aqueduct in on April 5. Still, this mount has plenty of speed and could challenge California Chrome for the outright win.
Dynamic Impact 12-1
Another top three finish in the 2014 Preakness Stakes would give Dynamic impact his fourth consecutive top three finish – after winning each of his last two races and coming in second place in the race just prior to those. Dynamic Impact knows how to close out opponents, holding off challengers in tight finishes in each of his last two races.
Last but certainly not least, I like Bayern, a 10-1 favorite. This mount won each of his first two races at Santa Anita this year before finishing third at Oaklawn Park and second at Churchill Downs in his last two events. Many believe he could challenge for a spot in the winner’s circle, but I think that may be a bit of a stretch.
So, there you have it…the top four finishers at the 2014 Preakness Stakes. Just remember, when you cash in because of this expert betting picks article, remember to send a portion of your winnings my way.
