Horse Racing Handicapping

1) THE TRAINER : Does the trainer have a good winning percentage? What races does the trainer win the most races – Short Races, Turf races, Long Races. Plus look to see which trainer/jockey combo has a good winning percentage. Another think to look for in a trainer that doesn’t have a lot of horses but a high winning percentage. Todd A. Pletcher has a winning percentage of 30% (which is pretty good) but his horses are usually the favorite (or close to it). If you can find James S. Acquilano as the trainer his winning percentage is 48%

Lets say the race is for 2 year olds first time starters well Mark E. Casse has a winning percentage of 43%, and it it was a turf race Chad C. Brown has a winning percentage of 33% while Joshua M. Litt , who does not train a lot of horses is a 63% winner on the grass.

2) THE JOCKEY : A lot of people say a jockey can’t win a race but they sure can lose one. (and 98% of the time that saying is true). The top jockey is Javier Castellano – and will usually have low odds – but if you see that he is 5/1 or better I would be the jockey. Lets say it’s graded stakes race well John R. Velazquez has a 28% winning percentage. Another interesting play is if the jockey switches horse.
Another interesting play is light weight long race. Lets

3) THE ODDS : Only One thing to say here : DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE ODDS. If you like a horse and it’s 30-1 then bet it. Don’t bet your full bank roll but throw a couple of bucks on it. I have personally placed 50.00 on a number of 20,30 and my personal best 47-1 shots and came out a winner. (I also left the track right after cashing out). I have also put 50.00 on a 2-1 shot trying to pick up some change and 99% of the time gotten burned.
