I love that... "inherent elevated level of chaos with lower class horsies"! If you mean more occurances of hanky-panky, you're probably right.

Still, if you could become an expert on a minor track like Emerald, it seems reasonable to me that you'd do better than an expert at Santa Anita.

I'd love to have data that tells me every possible trend with trainers and jockeys. Which trainer does best after claiming a horse (both the first and second race after the claim), best overall in claiming races, best in stakes and allowances, etc. Who does best when moving a horse up or down in class or distance? How significant are jockey switches with each trainer?

What is the rail bias at Emerald? Which trainers/jocks understand it? Perhaps more important, which don't? Which pigheaded jock will gun for the lead even though the rail is a killer, for example?

When weird longshots win, which trainer/jock is usually involved? What was the pattern leading up to that race?

Ah... so much ahead of you. :-)
