View Full Version : Hanidicapping Monthly - Interview With CJ and more

09-09-2013, 09:33 AM
The Horseplayer Monthly is an e-magazine that's totally free to both HANA and non-HANA members that is almost 100% focused on handicapping. We embarked on this project for three main reasons:

1. Handicapping horses is the greatest gambling game ever invented, and we want that shouted from the rooftops. We feel that horseplayers, new and old, crave handicapping information. By publishing a monthly magazine focused on it, if some of that information helps even one person become a better player, or reaches one person who does not know about horse racing handicapping but wants to, (and he or she becomes a new fan and bettor), we think we've done our job.

2. We feel by publishing the e-magazine, HANA can reach more people who may want to become HANA members, help out, be engaged to promote racing, offer ideas to make it better, lobby their political leaders (if need be) on horseplayer taxation, or uniform rules, or anything else that can help the sport. There is strength in numbers.

3. HANA is a volunteer organization and does not collect dues. Over the past several years, HANA has relied solely on the goodwill of fellow horseplayers through donations or a voluntary contribution through the purchase of a HANA Member Pin. We feel a publication such as Horseplayer Monthly can bring in a nominal amount of advertising dollars. This revenue will be used to help grow the organization in an exciting new direction. Members may visit Horseplayersassociation,org for a copy of our yearly financials.

We hope you enjoy the first issue of HANA's Handicapping Monthly. We thank everyone who worked on getting it done, our advertisers, and the fine people in the sport who responded to our interview

I'll be happy to answer any questions stemming from the Q & A here as well.

I put that up on twitter. Newbies have such a time learning about speed and pace figs, and Paceadvantage - with all the seasoned players in the general area - can be intimidating. I hope someone or two takes you up on it in this thread. Learning a bit about TF can up their ROI where they can have more fun betting the game.

Thanks to everyone who downloaded the emagazine the past few days. It's been pretty amazing.

Just a note: Mike Maloney is conformed for a story in next month's issue. If you'd like to ask any specific questions about how he goes about his betting day or prepares for it, let me know.

Cheers and thanks again.

Details on the mag this month are here.


So far there is some neat handicapping stuff, and if you play Keeneland there are some excellent stats compiled by Jeff Platt on track bias, riders, trainers and what distances are won by what type of horses.
