We agree to disagree about the track condition on Wednesday. I felt that the rail was the place to be, less so in routes.

I felt the track had played with a rail bias earlier in the meet off a very similar set of circumstances. Heavy rains caused a good track to open the meet on a Thursday. By Saturday, the track seem to be in favor rail speed and the condition lasted a couple of days. I felt my hypothesis was backed up by some horses running wide on these days came back to win or run 2nd in their next race. Heavy rains came again last weekend and caused a good track on Saturday and Sunday and I felt the rail was the place to be on Monday and Wednesday

I am not Alydar nor am I trying to bust anyone's chops. I thought I asked a legitimate question on how you would adjust your odds line based on "correct" or "incorrect" observations.
