I am a fan of thoroughbred horse racing – like you – and for years (actually lots and lots of years) I believed that every race was worth a wager. That “thinking” often had me going home with my pockets empty or, at least, nearly empty. It never occurred to me that I had losing days because I was wagering on “bad races.” But, in time, I figured it out. There are races in which every horse figures to lose.
Good Races Feature Horses that are True Favorites and other Horses that also have a Very Strong Chance to Win.
If you are a knowledgeable handicapper, you know how to look at a Racing Program, digest, and process the information it contains. And, if you can do that, you should be able to determine if any of the horses entered in the race actually are strong contenders with a legitimate chance to win. If you can answer “yes,” you can invest money in that race. You need to find from one to four strong contenders to make a race viable … and worthy of a wager.
Bad Races Feature Horses that for a Variety of Reasons, including Time Off and Lack of Fitness are Unlikely to Win.
Naturally, even in a bad race, one of the entered horses will cross the finish line first because someone has to win. But, because it is a “bad race” with poorly conditioned horses or horses that are past their prime or horses that are simply averse to winning (Yes, many horses prefer to follow instead of lead), you are likely to have a difficult time finding the best horse. And if that is true, you are more likely to lose than win. So … why bet?
Handicap Races Thoroughly … Wager Wisely … and Increase your Chances of Winning.
If you stick to the good races and eliminate the bad races, you have a very good chance of winning with regularity. The truth is that if you “throw out” the bad races, you will be able to uncover the “real” leading candidates in the good races … and you will find yourself cashing winning tickets.
