Track Biases can make or break a horse and in horse racing betting its something that definitely should be noted
1.) Watch the turns. Are the horses eating up ground on the outside, or is the rail the only place to be?
2.) Watch the break from the gate. Are particular post positions sluggish during the early going, even when early speed horses are present.
3.) In route races around two turns, watch the run to the clubhouse turn. Do horses exiting the outside posts settle into position comfortably, or are they laboring noticeably?
4.) Watch the top jockeys. Do the best boys continually direct their mounts to one part of the track? Handicappers are advised that most jockeys remain insensitive to biases themselves, but that every track’s colony contain one or two who know where to be after two or three turns of the course.

* The style of running plays a factor here I am a firm believer that the number of challengers determine how tired the front runner get, and not how fast they run. A horse gets tired from trying to pull away from his rivals who are right by his side.
* A sprinter who takes an early comfortable lead then is asked to run slower than he normally does and is not challenged by anyone else for a long time can go all the way.
* The best time to play a sprinter in a route race is when you found one who has shown early speedin sprints.
*Also take notice when a horse has run evenly or who has been able to stay close, then closes ground in sprints. When these horses are entered in a longer race where there is no front speed.
* A closer in a route seldom has much chance when placed in a sprint.
* When all the races in a horses past performance are routes, one must assume that the fast early pace of a sprint will hurt the router too much to recover.
* Closers in routes make the worse possible bets in sprints and should be eliminated in almost all cases.Share on Facebook
