Using handicapping software to improve your game

Although technology has greatly improved in almost every area of our lives, if you are like most handicappers you are still using the racing form or some other paper product to handicap races. This puts you at a great disadvantage, and it would be well worth your time to investigate how using handicapping software can help you win at the racetrack.

The biggest advantage that horse racing software provides is the ability to look at each race you handicap in a consistent way. The ability to rank horses based on criteria you select can take your game to a new and profitable level.

Many handicapping programs can be complicated and require you to upload files or download software. As technology has improved so have the types of software available to you.

One of the easiest and most powerful programs we have found is new product called Betmix. This tool allows you to select from over 30 handicapping factors and assign a value, or weight, to each of those factors. If you were handicapping a 9 furlong turf race at Saratoga you might decide that Best Turf Speed, Turf Pedigree, Avg. Turf Earnings, Last Late Pace and Trainer % Current Year are the factors that you want to use to handicap the race. Using this handicapping software you can easily turn on each of those factors and assign values to each factor. If you made each factor equal in value the computer would rank each horse with those factors in mind. You could also give more weight to one or more factors to make them more important and instantly see the results of your method on the screen as the horse’s point totals change when you add new factors into your mix or change the values of any of the factors. Once you create an accurate mix (combination of factors and values) you can save and name that mix, and bring it up again on any future race.

Artificial intelligence is also used in this software to help you devise mixes based on past results. You can tell the computer who ran 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in a previous race and it will select the factors and values for those factors that would have predicted the correct outcome. Using this method of handicapping you can begin to see which factors are the most predictive in certain race types and use the computer created mixes to handicap future races.

Any good software should be easy to use and accurate. This horse racing software fits the bill, and can be tried for free each day without having to sign up or create an account. Give it a try and see how easy it is to improve your handicapping with a few clicks of your mouse!
