Become A Proficient Horse Handicapper

These trainers get hot for a few seasons and disappear into oblivion. But why?

Mainly because the people who create the hot tips are concerned only with their own horse without consideration for the other horses in race.

With three different and often misinformed groups influencing the odds at various stages of the process leading up to post time, it pays to do your homework and wait for the odds to work in your favor.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Richard Bleuze provides articles and information on the sport of horse betting. They are winning because of veterinarians and not because of their horse training! I suggest that you do not consider them a so called hot tip!

. In fact, more often than not, they can be a disaster. You can find out more on his website,www.bettingthehorsesonline.com

You will occasionally see certain trainers who have operated at a 10 percent win clip for their entire careers. A hot tip from someone in the supposely know can spread like wild fire until it makes its way to the betting windows. Many of owners think that because their exercise rider or jockey tells them that their horse worked exceptionally well, that the horse will win. These hot tips can come from anyone including trainers, jockeys, exercise riders, owners, grooms, clockers, and hotwalkers. They may know their horse is feeling good, but they fail to take into account the competition in the race. Thus, they tell all their close friends, who in turn tell everyone else, until all the connected money shows up at the windows. These tips are not usually hot.

Many trainers nowadays give their horses as few as three gate works before entering them in race, and you will rarely see a workout longer than six furlongs on a first-time starter.

Many horse bettors like to watch for the big money bets that occasionally flow into the mutuel pools just before post time. Owners are also influenced by trainers who are trying some new medication or equipment on a horse, but you are better off looking at the program yourself for equipment changes. It is a money thing!

The most profitable approach is not only to become a proficient handicapper, but also to become adept at creating your own odds line.

Another so called inside tip is when you are told to place a bet on a first time starter who has been working well. Long gone are the days when a trainer would work a horse up to 10 times out of the gate and seven furlongs in company before staring in a six furlong race.

Many of the owners are biased in favor of their own horse to start with, followed by jockeys, trainers, jockey agents and exercise riders. If you have not yet placed a bet, I suggest th you simply skip the race. There are ther races!

Many horse bettors and racetrack workers will often assume that a hot tip from someone who works at the track (jockey, trainer, owner, etc) is a good thing. These types of bets can make a horse a favorite in a short time. If you think these proven losers have all of a sudden become master horsemen and exceptional horse trainers; you are mistaken. Despite the fact that these big late bets are often based on superior insider information and/or information products the general public does not have access too, it has been statistically proven that they predict success at about the same rate as the public. Now all of a sudden, they are winning 30 to 40 percent or higher. Owners take advice from trainers, who in turn are influenced by jockeys and exercise riders. Besides the fact that the tipsters have generally not considered the other horses in the race, the trainer usually will not have the horse ready to go the distance in an actual race

How to Bet the Kentucky Derby: A Beginner’s Guide

Good luck racing fans!

Here’s our guide to making sense of the Run for the Roses. If you’re not going to be in Louisville for the big day, you can head to your local racetrack or off-track betting outlet and place a bet there.

You’ve got your mint julep and your fancy hat ready for the Kentucky Derby, but are you ready to place your bet on the horse you think will win?

Picking a Horse

There are 20 horses in the field for the Kentucky Derby, though as of now only 19 will be running Saturday (#11 Hopportunity was “scratched.”) All the horses are 3-year-old male thoroughbreds, which means they’re young horses with lots of talent that is still developing and not a ton of experience.

Many casual bettors will pick a horse based on name or looks, but there are better ways to judge the odds for whether a horse has a shot at winning. Or you can bet that he will “show,” — that is, come in first, second, or third. What’s a superfecta anyway, and how do you bet one?

Now it’s off to the races. You’re trying to hit the sweet spot: a horse with okay odds who you think has a shot at winning.

The favorite going into this weekend is California Chrome, with 5-2 odds.

Like all sports, horse racing has its own language that can be confusing to casual watchers. Say, “I’ll bet $2 on (horse’s name or number) to win.”

If you’re done with the beginner stage of betting, you can up your odds of winning by doing more complicated bets that yield bigger payouts: exactas, trifectas, and superfectas. The Kentucky Derby is one and a quarter miles long, longer than any race these horses have run before, so the winner will need stamina.

Odds and Favorites

When you look at a race form there will be a number in parentheses after each horse’s name. Saturday. Horses with lower first number (10 and down) are considered top contenders.

Betting on a horse with good odds will not pay out much money if they win. Here’s a quick guide:

Exacta: You pick the two horses you think will come in first and second, in that order.

Trifecta: Pick the three horses you think will come in first, second, and third – in the right order.

Superfecta: You guessed it. That number shows what the odds are that the horse will win. Give that a good look to see who’s done well recently.

Look for a horse that has won most of his races by a good length. It looks something like this: Vicar’s In Trouble (20-1).

Horses with a high first number (like 20-1 or 50-1) are considered unlikely to win the race. The words “first, second, and third,” are replaced by “win, place, and show.” If you think your horse is pretty good but not going to come in first, you can bet that he will “place,” — that is, come in first or second. If you’re in it for the thrill of victory alone (and not the money), he’s a good bet.

Betting on Your Picks: “I’ll take $2 to win on the four horse, please.”

In horse racing, you need to bet on what place the horse will come in. Like it’s name implies, the superfecta pays out big bucks if you manage to get it right.. A horse that goes into the race with 50-1 odds but comes in first place will pay out the most money to the bettor. Each horse will have a record of recent races he’s run, what place he finished, and how far ahead of the other horses he was. You can place your bet anytime up until about 20 minutes before the race goes off at 6:24 p.m. Therefore, betting on him won’t yield a big payout. Conversely, betting on a horse with bad odds will pay out a lot of money if they do win. If your horse comes in any of those positions, you’ll get money.

If you’re sure you’ve got the winner and you only want to place a simple bet for him to come in first, go ahead and bet your money that way. He’s dominated all the races he’s run so far and all eyes will be on him. For a superfecta you pick the top four finishers in the right order
