|The Staff at Turk Central working on Oaks Handicap|
Do I love Overanalyze? Not at all, but I'm also not sold on any of the horses that will go off at less than 6-1. So what's a horse player to do? Have fun. Keep your bets within reason. Take chances. Raise your hand if you had the 38-1 Oaks winner? I know people who did, and those folks are shrewd value bettors. Me, not so much. I don't pay attention to the morning line, but I do look at the tote board and that filly just didn't seem to have any support and I didn't see anything on paper that made me think Princess of Sylmar had anything: lost ground in Gazelle but did get Place, workouts at Churchill so-so, 4 wins in 6 starts, 5 of 6 in the money. A sleeper I would not have anticipated. Know thyself. Which leads us back to Overanalyze, but more importantly, forget what the talking heads and "experts" are telling you: There are 10 horses that could win this race and the other 9 shouldn't but could.
I suggest a betting method authored by "Tiznow" Tim Reynolds.
