Alabama Stakes odds analysis
You would think a third of the field being underlaid (based on your handicapping) would make for overlays elsewhere, but that's not always the case. Don't always assume that because you dislike a favorite that you should automatically love something else. Also, don't just "throw out" a favorite. I'm not in love with It's Tricky, but she's obviously a big win threat (I have her fair odds at 4-to-1). I'll pitch her in most pick Ns, but she'll win the Alabama enough times that if I like a price horse elsewhere in the sequence that I don't want to be against her if I can get a $20 horse home.
