Kamody was selected from thousands of entrants and millions of entries to travel to this year’s Preakness Stakes to make his $25,000 bet.  The Grand Prize Package also includes tickets for two at Pimlico on Black-Eyed Susan Day (May 18) and Preakness Day (May 19) as well as transportation and hotel accommodations. 

Kamody will be attending the Preakness Stakes for the first time and is looking forward to experiencing the Second Jewel of the Triple Crown.  He won the opportunity to make his ‘Big Bet’ by playing the races with Xpressbet from April 2 – May 6, 2018.  Additionally, 50 Second Prize Winners each won a $100 Xpressbet Wagering Voucher.
