Handicapping Profits Are Made In the Last Minutes Before Post Time

Fri ,24/10/2014

If you’re like many of us handicappers you probably spend a lot of time handicapping races, reviewing replays, and doing your research. That is all important and must be done to win at what is arguably the most difficult of all intellectual sports, namely, handicapping. There is, however, an important time frame that few handicappers understand or use effectively. I’m talking about the last few minutes before post.

Breeding and Training Are Keys to Maiden Winners

Fri ,24/10/2014

Using trainer patterns effectively in maiden races can lead to horse racing betting profits. The best way to do that is to match sire specific traits to trainers who are most effective with horses that exhibit those features. For instance, a trainer who likes to slowly bring along a horse and race it into condition isn’t likely to benefit much from a maiden that is from a sire that throws precocious foals.

Picking Long Shots In Horse Races

Thu ,23/10/2014

Good long shot bets aren’t easy to find. The tote board odds on a horse are usually a pretty good reflection of that runner’s chances of winning a race. There are some variations and once in a while the crowd miscalculates, but overall their opinion of a horse is usually pretty good. If that is the case, why can’t you just bet according to the odds? The reason is the vigorish, otherwise known as the vig. The amount of money the track takes out of each pool is the reason it’s so hard to beat the races. On the other hand, every day, at tracks all around the world, some longshots do manage to win races and a few lucky or highly skilled people cash big tickets.

Horse Track Betting As A Source Of Income At The Races

Thu ,23/10/2014

Many people think of trying to make money betting on horse races. Here are some thoughts on how that might or might not work. My opinion is based on personal experience. As a man and boy I’ve been going to the horse races for five decades. My grandfather first took me to the races where he worked as an assistant to trainers and an exercise rider. Over the years I’ve studied horse racing and have written several books and handicapping systems about the so-called sport of kings.

Using Probability and Power Rankings to Find Good Horse Racing Bets

Wed ,22/10/2014

Many of the main stream providers of horse racing handicapping information use a computer generated power number or ranking to indicate a horse’s overall strength in a race… the higher the ranking the better the horse. A quick way to handicap a race is simply to look for good jockeys who win frequently with a horse that has a high power number. Unfortunately, while this may pick winners it doesn’t necessarily answer the question of whether or not that is a good bet. In order to know if a horse is a good bet you need to know its chances of winning, otherwise known as win probability (WP) and then compare that to the odds at post time.

Here’s How to Find Good Long Shot Bets and Live Horses

Wed ,22/10/2014

Long shots are the best bets for big payoffs but they are also the most risky bets you can make. The crowd likes some assurance that the horse that they bet is likely to win so favorites look the part on paper, though they only win about a third of the time. Longshots, on the other hand, often don’t have much going for them if you only go by their recent racing lines. Somewhere within those lines however, you’ll often find a clue that will indicate the horse might have a big race in store.

Horse Racing: How To Deal With Losing Streaks Or Losing Runs

Tue ,21/10/2014

Making money in racing isn’t easy but can be done. Not by luck but by design. If you play the game constantly and long enough you’ll have losing streaks. The matter is: how to deal with losing streaks or losing runs? The base reason losing streaks occur is because no method or system is 100% efficient at getting every horse and winning every race. All methods and systems have strengths and weaknesses.

Horse Racing: How To Make Money In Racing

Wed ,15/10/2014

Horse racing’s made of two main parts: Profitcapping or the money part and Handicapping or the racing part. How to make money in racing requires the player to know both well and why it’s like this. You can make money in racing two ways: by accident or by design. By design is what every player seeks. With profitcapping you learn how the money flows in the game, how much money is in each bet type over months and years, how to get some of it and what must be done to get it. With handicapping you learn how to find the strongest methods to predict and chose horses for each order of finish position. The more you know the further by design you go.

Horse Racing: How To Grasp Beginner Profitcapping And Return On Investment

Thu ,09/10/2014

When a player first goes to the track to learn racing one of the first things he or she notices is the amount of money flowing in the system. The next thing is: how do I get some of this money? The player isn’t there simply to watch a race but to make an extra dollar, yen or pound. After going to the races many times the beginning player grasps a simple but very important fact: money in racing flows by field size. The larger the field size the more money overall in it than lesser field sizes. It becomes a matter of how do I take advantage of this fact? This is the beginning of Profitcapping.

Horse Racing: How To Grasp Profitcapping And Return On Investment

Mon ,29/09/2014

Horse racing’s made of two parts: the racing part (handicapping) and the money part (profitcapping). Without money racing’s simply an equine contest. The money making side is about making a profit or having a return on investment. Studying both parts gives a player an advantage because most players think mainly about handicapping or getting the winning horse. A player can’t profit without winning but you can win without profiting. The game is about making money or profiting. Just as much work has to be put into studying the money profit side as the racing side. Return on investment is what its’ all about and not just picking horses.
