Tote Board Factors

I'm just curious about what people consider to be the biggest factor that influences the tote board's final odds in Harness Racing. I realize it depends on the size of the pool (Lebanon 'barn money effect' is different than BigM barn money) so let's use tracks with win pools in the range of $5000 to $15000.



1. Barn (smart) money or other inside information
2. Handicapping solely from program information
3. Morning Line
4. Early tote action and/or tote movement trends
5. 1 or more whales ($100+ bettors smart or dumb)
6. Expert picks / tip sheets / TV analysts / internet picks

I'll post this as a poll, but I'm more interested on how the factors should be ranked, which might be different than any poll results. Any comments?
