Potential Triple Crown Increases Betting at Presque Isle Downs

Posted: Updated:
People in our area are well aware of the Triple Crown hopes. It’s an electric evening at Presque Isle Downs and Casino as horse racing enthusiasts place their bets on the Belmont Stakes.

People lined up and placed their bets at the Downs all afternoon with some waiting until evening to make that final decision. And no surprise: Downs officials tell us that overall favorite California Chrome is leading the bets.

One local gambler we spoke with says he likes California Chrome but it could be any horse's race.

"I think he's got a real good shot, but you've also got a lot of real good horses that are going to be coming after him, and a mile and a half is a long race over there," said Paul Wozniak, who said he wouldn’t place his bet until later in the afternoon.

You can watch the Belmont Stakes on WICU-TV. Post time is 6:52p.m.
