The Racing Biz, a MATCH Series marketing partner, will be offering three free online handicapping contests Preakness Stakes weekend, including two directly tied to MATCH.

The first four races in the MATCH Series will be held May 18-19 at Pimlico Race Course. Prizes will be offered to the player who has the highest hypothetical earnings for the four races combined; all four series races must be played.

Those four races kick off the series-long contest. To qualify for prizes, players must participate in at least 15 of the 25 MATCH Series races. For players who play more than 15 races, only their 15 best races will count.

The series-long contest will feature two concurrent competitions: one to earn the most hypothetical money and the other to pick the most winners.

The Racing Biz also will hold its regular contests, which are based on win and place wagers in a selected number of races, on May 18, Black-Eyed Susan Stakes day, and May 19, Preakness Stakes day.
