In creating a morning line, is it the job to produce what the public will bet by post time or the estimation of the odds maker on the ability of said horse winning the race???
The morning line odds reflects the track oddsmaker’s estimate of what each horses odds will be at post time.The actual odds are established by the amounts wagered on each horse in the win pool.
Supposing the track morning line man hates a horse and thinks his odds should not be less than 10-1 but he thinks that this horse would be the public's choice come post time, so he puts down the horse as the ML favorite.
I however do not agree with this concept.
