Consistent Income

Consistent Income

In a post several months back, I hinted at a “survival method” in the works.

It was to be for players to whom $75 or $100 a day from the races (on a short-stack starting bankroll) would make a difference. 

It was to be consistent and not too difficult to apply. 

Now, many months (!), and hundreds of races tested and wagered later – I have something good (much better than anticipated!).

2020 – A Year For the Books

2020 – A Year For the Books

How to even begin a review of this last year?! 

Racing, politics, travel, family life, the economy – everything was changed radically in 2020.

All still remains in an unresolved, Covid-clouded limbo. I’ll try to focus on racing in the topics reviewed below . . .

Handicapping In An Unsure World

Handicapping In An Unsure World

All predictions are problematic. We try to use the past to project what the future will bring . . . but my gosh – the unknown variables potential is nearly limitless.

For betting the races, the question ever remains – is there a clear way to profits at the windows?

19 Points to Ponder

19 Points to Ponder

The following will be a ramble – incomplete thoughts, ideas, and opinions presented without any special order, or assumption of importance.

These are simply odd musings of mine to add to your own if you wish – during these strange Covid 19 times . . .

Breeders Cup 2019

Breeders Cup 2019

For us here at Horse Racing Gold – the Breeders Cup is all about two things:

  • watching the classiest horses from around the world run – and
  • putting ourselves in a position to cash in big on the results.

The Breeders Cup festival is notorious for putting up some monster payoffs.

There is such potential in each of the horses entered – the competition is so stiff  – that the average race player just has a tougher time identifying the true contenders.  They grossly overlook long-shots that have big chances to win these races, and/or run in the money to complete exotics wagers that pay bombshell prices.

A Different Way

A Different Way

“I’ll do it my way – right or wrong.”  Folks can get kind of set in their ways – especially handicappers. They get settled into a ‘style’ of handicapping and pretty much stick with that through the years – maybe with an amendment here – a tweak there – a new idea tried once in awhile . . . 

But we have a different way for your consideration (that is also easy to apply and profitable). It doesn’t require your handicapping input at all, and it also doesn’t require software, past performance data, or even that much of your time?!

Professional Level ROI

Professional Level ROI

Recently, a long-time subscriber emailed – asking (in brief):  “Hey Gary, what is the target ROI that pro handicappers believe to be acceptable when working consistently?

Well now . . . that pretty much is the $64,000 question.  The answer to, and an extended discussion of that question follows.

The brutal winter weather is (hopefully) coming to an end, and the good Spring race meets are getting into gear.

We have a new format, a new offer, and good news for “early-bird” bettors . . .

Year-end Review

Year-end Review

As a slight deviation on our annual year-end review, the following may be only a reminder to many of you, yet – just maybe a necessary eye-opener for some of you.

Although much of it has been mentioned in our past postings, consider it a sort of holiday gift from a handicapping “Grinch” with some, perhaps, not-so-welcomed points for your consideration . . .

Super-Tanker Logic

Super-Tanker Logic

The “obvious bet” – is there such a thing, and if so – what makes a good bet obvious?

Recently I came across a speech given by ultra-rich businessman, Jim Tisch (son of billionaire, Larry Tisch) at Columbia University in 2006. 

What he had to say struck me as pertinent to the ‘pulling the trigger’ decisions we face every day in horse racing – a simple “test” that will eliminate bet-time indecision . . .

Kentucky Derby 2018

Kentucky Derby 2018

Another Kentucky Derby! It’s one of the great sporting events of our country . . . and how (relatively) under-appreciated it actually is.  Hard to figure.

No matter.  Horse Racing Gold will issue our annual Special Kentucky Derby Report as always, and as always, we are looking forward to a having a great day – both fun-wise, and profit-wise!  We will offer our in-depth Report for both the Kentucky Derby and include the Kentucky Oaks – AND as a bonus this year . . .

Morning Line Magic

Morning Line Magic

Over the years, our number one request from players has always been for a quick-handicap, advance-betting method that would use the morning line, and not require being glued to the computer screen, or track or satellite center monitors.

Personal time is valuable- we understand.

All of us have things we might prefer doing – or at least of having the option of doing – rather than sitting through long cards of racing where most of the time is spent just waiting for the next race (particularly if on a low-caliber Thursday card with off-weather tracks and miniature fields).

But the ‘quick-handicap – bet in advance‘ idea has always seemed impractical . . . too easy to be possible. However, that never stopped the continuing research and hunting for a way to make it work, and finally – we’ve found a pretty darned good way . . .

Dichotomy

Dichotomy

My dictionary gives the definition of “dichotomy” as: “division into two mutually exclusive, opposed, or contradictory groups.” 

In handicapping and betting the horse races, there is an ‘elephant-in-the-room’ dichotomy, yet – it is one that most ‘handicappers’ refuse to even consider . . .

“Chalk Talk”

“Chalk Talk”

(Be sure and see Breeders Cup Report offer at bottom of post)

As we have said repeatedly over the years: Handicapping and betting the races can be one of the most complex and difficult endeavors one could imagine – or it can be fairly simple, and not all that difficult.

This is not to try and insinuate that it is an easy way to make a lot of money – it isn’t . . . but – there are only a select few things you need to know, remember and apply in order to handicap and bet the thoroughbreds profitably.

In the following, I’ll discuss a wagering aspect which can be considered primary to  success in this game.
