Sports betting can pay off for states, but maybe not as much as hoped

Photo by Fisherga via Flickr CC The Preakness, the second leg of horse racing's Triple Crown, is Saturday, May 18. As a former Maryland resident, the 144th running of the race the Black Eyed Susans will be somewhat bittersweet. It could be the last time the legendary race will be held at Baltimore's Pimlico Race Course. It also will not lead to a Triple Crown winner.

How Mike Smith and Bob Baffert could surprise at the Preakness

Some observers might have been surprised when Mike Smith landed on 5-2 morning-line favorite Improbable for Saturday’s 144th running of the Preakness Stakes. They probably surmised that since Smith took off one of Baffert’s Kentucky Derby contenders, Roadster, in favor of the Richard Mandella-trained Omaha Beach in the Run for the Roses, that Baffert would hold a grudge and look in another direction when choosing a rider for his lone Preakness horse. But Smith wasn’t surprised when Baffert chose...
