Sat ,19/07/2014

There are many ways to handicap horse races. Some are better than others and some, obviously, are more complicated than others. Before we narrow down our search for the best way to handicap, however, let’s talk about our goal. The only reason to evaluate the runners in a race is to figure out how likely each one is to win the race. If you’re planning on making exotic bets you may also want to determine how likely each horse is to finish in the money. We’ll consider a good bet any horse that pays enough to win to make it profitable to bet the horse.

How To Bet Longshots To Make Money On Horse Races

Sat ,19/07/2014

Finding a horse at long odds that has a real chance to win a horse race is like finding money in the street. Those longshot bets only come along once in a while, however, so when you do find a live horse at a good price, you have to take the opportunity. The question is, however, how to bet the horse? While straight win bets are probably the best all around wager in horse racing, it pays to shop around. The thing about a horse at high odds is that while it may not win the race, it may pay well enough to place or show to make it worthwhile in any of those positions.

The Most Important Factor in Horse Racing Handicapping Is Time and Here’s Why

Fri ,18/07/2014

Whether it’s the amount of time it takes a horse to cover six furlongs of ground or the time it takes a horse to reach mid-season form, time is the most important factor to a handicapper. It isn’t so much the ticking of the clock as the changes that occur while time goes by that matter. Let’s face it, if nothing ever changed time would be irrelevant, but the thing about time is that it changes everything, or does it? Is it time that changes or do changes occur while time goes by? For a horseplayer the important thing to remember is that nothing stays the same and you have to estimate the effect of time and those changes on the runners in a race.

The art of horse racing handicapping requires information. The skill you develop using that information may also be considered an art.

Longshots and Consistency in Horse Racing Handicapping

Thu ,17/07/2014

One of the problems that horseplayers face is cash flow. Maintaining a bankroll while wading through the past performances and betting on horse races isn’t always easy and even the best of us have a bad meet from time to time and tap out. My way of dealing with it in the past has been to go fishing for a while and then come back to horse racing with a fresh outlook. I review what happened and try to learn from the experience. When you bet lower priced horses, perhaps sticking to the top three contenders in races that you find formful such as the “True” races I mentioned in “Horseplayer,” your strike rate will be pretty high and you may have a better chance of keeping your cash. However, sometimes there are longshots that are worth a bet.

Longshot Horse Racing Tips For Finding The Best Bets

Tue ,15/07/2014

The difficult part of trying to find a good bet on a horse that’s at long odds is that it has to look bad on paper – in the past performances, in order to be a value bet, but it still must also have a reason to win. Selecting such horses is often a matter of compromise. For instance, the trainer has a 5% win rate with horses coming back from a layoff, but this horse also has the best speed at the distance, so it has the potential to win, but only if the conditions are right.
