I seem to recall that back in the early 1980’s the owners of Perrault (DQ’s out of a SA Handicap win against John Henry) used to bet large amounts to win on his horses early, so the first tick showed extremely low odds. He reasoned that this drove the value players to longer odds horses and in theory raised the odds on his bet. Seems to be working so far here are some of the others are getting more money than Essential Quality right now (or it could be people are just waiting to see what happens for him).
