Greyhounds and Horses aint my thing. My father was an dog lover. When the seasons were open. He was in Miami every weekend. He spent hours at night through the week studying race books and papers. I was a child and he tried to teach me about the races. I dont think he realized what he was doing. Teaching a child how to handicap races. Children were only allowed on Saturdays @ certain races in Miami for fun when i was growing up. Now they make the tracks kid friendly. It didnt interest me though. I am more a Casino guy now. I wish I paid more attention. It wouldnt hurt to know a bit about handicapping dogs and horses.
Yeah, a kid don't need to be learning about gambling at such a young age.
It was an interesting read. I learned how to first eliminate the tracks at which the certain dogs raced. Then i eliminated the distance the dogs raced, soley relying on certain criteria. Then I learned how to eliminate more dogs based on overlapping criteria. And it just went on and on...lol.....then I learned how to determine which dog/s were to overcome the race based on where they were placed in the starting slot before the race. You know....If they were closer to the inside, they had less of a chance to get pushed out or get into trouble. Then I learned that a certain distance in the track was the best one to play in. Then i learned how to determine which dogs may cause trouble based on their history.....and on and on. I only mention 1/4 of the intro.....lol.........There is much much much more......
After the 117th step, you think you're done......oh no..........not more........yup....much more.......THE CODING.......OH NO!!!!!!!!!
I'd rather have needles forced under my fingernails....lol
If you can make it thru that and not get admitted into an insane asylum, then you have to prepare yourself for more....... there's more.........
Now you have to learn the betting technique. That's right. That's just as important as the Coding crap!
The bets rely on the coding.......
If i had any hair, I'd pull it out !
