Say what? Having trouble sleeping?
First of all, on the subject of favorites at the greyhound track, I found a study that evaluated 4,723 greyhound races and found that the favorites win 22.3% of the time. Yes, really.

Actually, there's some really good information in there for the serious handicapper if you wish to mine for it. The bottom line: Favorites in greyhound racing are overbet and longshots are underbet.
Or, if you wish, you can sleep on it.
P.S. Here's an older similar study from NC (2000).
