The takeout on a double is more than a win, but less than a parlay would be.
22% is criminal. I'm guessing Pimlico is less.

Here is the last verse to "Maryland my Maryland" which is sung just before the Preakness.
The Old Line's bugle, fife, and drum,
She is not dead, nor deaf, nor dumb-
Huzza! she spurns the NORTHERN SCUM!
She breathes! she burns! she'll come! she'll come!
Maryland! My Maryland!
sorry Yanks. No hard feelings.
anyway they omit singing that verse because of the controversy surrounding it.
love the 2nd to last line "She breathes! she burns! she'll come! she'll come!"
of course she'll come. Maryland boys know how to bada bada bing!
Amended title for you.
It just got curiouser and then downright odd when I Googled it. While it was sung as a battle cry by supporters of the Confederacy, the relatively innocuous (or perhaps just inscrutable) third verse of it is sung at the Preakness by the United States Naval Academy Glee Club. And the lyrics are set to the tune of "O Tannenbaum" of all things. So, avenge that vandal tyrant Lincoln, and Merry Christmas! Sir!Quote: billryan
Seeing how Maryland never left the Union , that's a very curious verse.
