Tony Zhou was on the most recent Sport of Kings podcast. It's a sobering listen with respect to how tough the competition is. It also offers some insights relevant to the "Odds Change" thread. Part of the edge possessed by computer players (as robotic teams or otherwise) is their insight into how races will be bet. Zhou talks mostly about win odds on the podcast, but I have to guess that his database also gives him insight into other pools, including those not displayed by the tote.
