Fair Grounds: Oriza heavily bet again


Low-level La-bred claiming router Oriza was pummeled at the betting windows Dec. 19 before winning at odds of 13-10. He was claimed that day from trainer Sam Breaux and now starts for trainer Chad Pitzer, but the betting patterns are the same. With 19 minutes to post Oriza was a 1-9 favorite, and now, with 11 MTP, he's still 1-5. Oriza won by only a nose at this class level last time, and looks to have to fight for the early lead, since his only style is going to the front. What am I missing?
