The Beauty of Parimutuel Betting

American Pharoah The Beauty of Parimutuel Betting
When you bet on a horse through any type of wager and it wins, your profits come from the losing horseplayers who bet on other horses in the same race. That’s the beauty of parimutuel wagering. Horseplayers are betting among and against each other. If you’re smarter than the other people betting, you can win their money. And, as many experienced players will tell you, it doesn’t take that much extra knowledge to be a better player in terms of beating the other bettors.

Like Poker… only better…
Another way to look at parimutuel wagering is compare it to the game of poker… even though with Poker you’re depending on the “luck of the draw” as much as your player skills. In poker, you’re betting against every other player at the card table. The theory is the same in horse racing. You’re betting against all the other horseplayers in the parimutuel pool.

When you play poker in a friendly club or in an online casino card game, the house extracts a percentage… or a “rake“… of the ante (the stake each player puts in the pot) for itself. In horse racing, the equivalent is the takeout.

After the rake is taken out in poker, and if you like the cards you hold in your hand, you bet and raise. Similarly, in horse racing, when you think the race has value, you bet into it. The poker game continues until the player with the best hand wins. The same goes in racing… if you bet the best horse or horses… and they run the best… you win.

The essence of playing poker and betting on horse racing is the same… you bet against all the other players. If you’re smarter than the other players… you should make money regardless of how much the house deducts from the antes, or how much the racetrack takeout is.

Track takeout is an overrated concern.
The parimutuel system puts a tax on wagering called the takeout. Track takeout provides the revenues for the horse racing business to pay its bills. The racetrack has to pay for such typical business expenses as overhead costs, the costs of maintaining the racetrack and all of its property, employee wages, plus… and most importantly… purse money (the prize money the horses’ owners try to win in each race).

Due to the fact horse owners need to win enough money to pay their bills, they want to run at racetracks that offer the best purses. In applying the system of supply and demand to horse racing… the bigger the purses, the better the quality and quantity of horses that run at that track. This is simply one of the undeniable, basic realities of the horse racing business that shapes the game.

In addition to the racetracks and horse owners, the government… local, state, and federal… profits from parimutuel wagering. Depending on the jurisdiction, the government receives a share of the takeout. Overall, the parimutuel wagering system takes care of all parties’ needs and it contributes to the sport’s and industry’s ability to perpetuate itself.

As a player, getting overly concerned with the amount of takeout you’re being taxed with at a track; especially to the point where it starts dictating what tracks you’re going to play, and where you’re going to bet, is a mistake. Picking a track to play because it has a 1% lower takeout is more than a little bit silly. Play the tracks you’re best at handicapping and betting. Skip the drama of worrying about takeouts.

The benefits of parimutuel betting…
A successful horse player must acquire two types of skills to win money… (1) handicapping and (2) betting. If forced to choose between which skill you’d be best off possessing and refining… it’s probably betting.

Lots of handicappers can analyze and evaluate a horse race with keen, effective insight. But, they fail to construct bets that will make them money. On the other hand, lots of horse players can take good handicapping information from
other available resources… like this website and its free picks… and conservatively put together bets that give them a strong chance of winning money.

Parimutuel betting is both attractive and beneficial, because you can win even if you’re a good… but not a great handicapper. If you know and apply one of the keys to succeeding in the parimutuel wagering system… which is looking for overlays (meaning horses going off at higher odds than their actual chance of winning)… and you know how to bet to make money, you can rely on a number of readily available resources to find good handicapping information. So, in the end… you should win more often than you lose.

Jockey’s View of a Horse Race

Vicki Baze Turf Paradise Jockey Jockeys View of a Horse Race

Jockey Vicki Baze is known for her love and respect of the horses she rides.

Ever wonder what it’s like to sit atop and ride a champion thoroughbred race horse? What kind of interaction does a jockey have with a horse during a race? What does a jockey do to help an incredible equine athlete perform and win? Well, thanks to EquiSight, and one of their GoPro cameras, and a very cool video you can get answers to these questions and experience this amazing thrill from a jockey’s exact view.

At a recent running of the Arizona Breeders Festival Stakes Race at the Turf Paradise Racecourse just outside Phoenix and Scottsdale, jockey Vicki Baze rides her mount, One Call, in winning a contest her horse runs first, wire-to-wire. It’s Vicki’s view as a jockey that makes this ride an unforgettable experience. And, you may find it interesting how she talks and coaches her horse to a winning performance. It’s a visual and sensory “inside” experience that captures the true excitement of the sport of horse racing… hold on tight while you watch.

Turf Paradise Race Track History

Turf Paradise Race Track history dates back to 1954, when local businessman Walter Cluer acquired the 1,400 acres of land on which he would build the track. Although the still-developing infrastructure outside of Phoenix led many to doubt whether Turf Paradise could be successful, Arizona’s first parimutuel horse racing track opened on January 7, 1956 with the seats and standing-room areas packed.

Cluer’s ownership lasted 25 years, and Herb Owens set about upgrading the facilities after he purchased the venue in 1980. Under his owenrship. the track saw the enlargement of the Clubhouse and the addition the Turf Club and an outdoor patio. Robert Walker bought Turf Paradise in 1989 and helped create a network of off-track horse race betting facilities throughout the state where live horse racing from Turf Paradise could be broadcast. After a brief period of corporate ownership, Jerry Sims bought the venue in 2003. His upgrades include a 30-ft x 60-ft equine pool for horse training and therapy and 90-foot marquees to greet visitors at both Turf Paradise entrances.

Turf Paradise features a beautifully-maintained 7-furlong turf track with a 1 1/8-mile chute.

Noob’s Corner Handicapping High School

Noobs Beginner Handicapping Noobs Corner Handicapping High School
We call it handicapping for beginners, but that’s not exactly true. We know… because there are plenty of players out there who have been betting for awhile, but who refuse to think of themselves as beginners… even though their knowledge level is not far beyond that of a beginner. So, it would be a mistake and a disservice to those that hold this opinion of themselves to portray Noob’s Corner as kindergarten for handicappers.

On the other hand, truly veteran players may only find an occasional, “Gee, I didn’t know that” moment in reviewing Noob’s Corner. They know the importance of early speed… understand what a class drop means as a betting opportunity. Or, that a part of well-rounded handicapping always includes taking a good long look at the horses physically, and not just their numbers.

A veteran player probably won’t get that much out of Noob’s Corner other than the reminder that you should always be looking to learn more… and when you start thinking you know everything is when your win-loss percentage starts reflecting otherwise. Noob’s corner is definitely not a handicapping college or university. It’s somewhere in the middle. That’s why we sarcastically refer to it as handicapping high school.

Some elements of handicapping are nothing more than good common sense. Other parts of it might suggest you need to be an Einstein to grasp its figures, equations and theories. Players of all skill levels, all over the world can’t seem to agree on the most important aspects of handicapping. If you’ve spent even a short amount of time studying handicapping, it should be no surprise that everybody who’s ever spent a dime on horse race betting has a different take on picking winners.

So, Noob’s Corner isn’t so much handicapping for beginners as it is handicapping from the beginning. Take what you want from this work in progress. Pick what you like. Start in the middle, or stop at the beginning. Powered by tips, videos and anecdotes, Noob’s Corner is a good internet place to spend some time if you’re serious about improving and sharpening your handicapping skills. Never stop learning and always keep an open mind. Noob’s Corner here.

A Conversation with Andrew Beyer

Andrew Beyer, designer and developer of the famed and vaunted, Beyer Speed Figure, as well as the author of the best-selling book on horse race handicapping, “Picking Winners”… a how-to based on the use of his speed figure… discusses how he developed this system and has continued to refine its formulation.

Initially designed in the 1970’s as his own personal gambling tool, Beyer’s speed figure system dominates the process for many handicappers. In this conversation, Beyer explains what exactly are his speed figures, and how he envisioned their significance could and would be used in picking winners.

Beyer says he never developed the rating to be a magical, all-encompassing number that would tell a bettor everything he or should know about a horse.
He stresses it’s just one number in a handicapper’s arsenal of tools, but it’s one number that is meant to be universally accurate regardless of whether a player is sizing up a horse in Florida, New York or California. It is one number and one answer to handle all the questions a handicapper has about a horse’s speed.
