Is there a wagering menu for special multi race/multi day bets this year for Preakness?

Found this - mentions the BES/Preakness Double but that's it.

I’ve looked at this race for a while and I keep coming back to it setting up for Early Voting and Epicenter to run 1-2 with moderate early fractions set by Early Voting. I don’t think Epicenter or Simplification want to get into an early duel with Early Voting and I’m not sure anyone else in the field is fast enough to really pressure Early Voting.

Fenwick is a bit of a question mark as I assume they’re going to want to send him and hope for the best. He never seemed to get comfortable in the Blue Grass so I expect a better effort from him. But I’m not really sure how fast he is.

Creative Minister is getting some hype and I don’t want to discount him but I think Skippylongstocking is a more interesting longshot coming from off the pace and plan to include him underneath in all my bets.

Epicenter is much horse to beat if he comes back from a tough derby. Iíll play him in few exactas with horses not named Secret Oath. Going to be very hot and Marshmello will be melting in the infield. Whatís over under on beer consumed in this heat?

I agree about Epicenter. He ran a huge race in the Derby and has been the most consistently good of this group. But I do think the likely pace scenario favors Early Voting (although should also favor Epicenter.) So if Early Voting improves at all, he should be right there. And heís fresher and a lot of his family only got better with age. So I like him to continue to improve and I will be only using him on top in all of my bets. If I lose, so be it. But I really like him and donít want to touch Epicenter at even money.

Settled on Early Voting as my selection to beat Secret Oath.

I luckily had a win bet on Early Voting but stupidly did not include Creative Minister in any of my trifecta bets. Itís a tough game when you arenít able to capitalize on a good opinion.

Hope you guys were all able to make some money yesterday.
