This.

Even keeping up with the early fractions, it looked like he was doing it so easily. For a couple seconds rounding the final turn I thought maybe he was running out of steam, but he switched...

In this case, the horse was 8-1 in the morning line, but to me that was ridiculously high. After the first click the horse was 3/5 (less than $500 on him to win at that point). The odds slowly...

I'm torn on how to play it. A couple months back I planned on tossing the top 2-3 picks and work a 5 or 6 horse EXB with the next group I liked. That still seems like a decent option given most...

IMO - the 'public' has little ability to refrain from betting. How many races a day would you really consider to be playable? Most bettors select a few tracks to focus on and play nearly every race....
