Thoroughbred Horse Racing over the last 40-50 years has developed a “hard core” group of fans. Perhaps that includes you. As a longtime fan of “the ponies,” you probably believe that you know all that is necessary about “reading form” in a program and picking winners. And there is no doubt that you are quite knowledgeable. However, is it possible that you can learn even more? The answer is yes.
If you just look for “the Speed” in a Horse’s Past Performance Lines, you are overlooking lots of Valuable Information.
That is the truth. How do I know? I also enjoy wagering on thoroughbred racehorses. In addition, over the years, I have read many books about “reading form,” done lots of studying at various race tracks, as well … talked to lots of “skilled” players … and discovered that most people know how to “read some of the form.” Speed matters … but several other factors are almost as important.
Success at the Race Track is Dependent on your Ability to understand and Use all of the Factors in a Race Program.
The first and most important factor you need to use to judge a thoroughbred race horse’s ability to win is its Speed Rating … but you already know that. However, in order to excel at reading the program and then cashing winning tickets, you have to be able to take advantage of the other information available to you in the program. You should take into consideration– the horse’s age … its sex … the track, track condition and any existing variances in the track – on that day … time off between races …owner, trainer and, of course, jockey.
Use all of Those Factors in an Intelligent Manner … and you are going to win.
Now, you may already know how to read – and use – some of the race factors I have mentioned. If so, that is good … and helpful to you. However, to be a consistent winner, even a “big money winner,” you need to know how to use all of the factors mentioned here … because, when “lumped together: and understood, they arm you with the kind of knowledge that can make you as good as a professional handicapper.
Yes … Based on your Experience and Years as a Fan, you can – and should – Win Lots and Lots of Races.
There is absolutely no reason why, after doing something you love for years and years, you should not be really good at doing it. In addition, if you follow the advice offered here, you will improve as a thoroughbred horse racing handicapper and you will win … more often than you do now. Try it – by using all of the information available – and see for yourself.
Enjoy the race, but bet to win,
