Does Amoss have the same influence on the odds board as Maggie does?

I was having a hard time getting motivated yesterday. Kind of felt like the weather that's currently in the Chicagoland area. So, I made a pot of coffee and put on Saratoga Live.

Amoss comes on the show at some point and he touts PUBLIC SECTOR in the Forbidden Apple. Sure, I can see it. The ML looks good too. Fast-forward to the Forbidden Apple and PUBLIC SECTOR is co-favored with SET PIECE. SET PIECE is 3 points faster on paper.

Was it Amoss who drove down the odds, or were they just betting Chad Brown with a horse who was undefeated over the Saratoga turf course?

All I know is when Maggie touts a horse the odds drop. The other day she touted a horse at 22/1 and as soon as she was done talking the odds began to go down. The horse ended up going off at around 12-to-15/1.

I'm reluctant to play turf races at Saratoga when it's a full field ... especially when they start tinkering with the rail. Too much traffic.

I don't know if SET PIECE would have won, the winner ran a big race, but he definitely gets the place without the traffic he encountered.
