View Full Version : Black Magic software

08-21-2016, 11:37 AM
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to offer anything in this forum, so please excuse.

I purchased the Black Magic software a few years ago, and after learning it's nuances, I found it to be a great help. Especially in finding certain types of races, and your able to filter accordingly.

Unfortunately, the esteemed attorney general of Texas shut down all online horse race betting in Texas. My account at Twinspires was closed and my balance returned to me. So I can't use it anymore unless I want to print out the races and take it to the track. Or take my computer with me and sit in the simulcast bar.

So I would like to sell it. It contains several manuals and CDs that really give you insight on how to use it. I bought it for $1495. I would like to sell it for $525 which will include shipping. If anyone is interested, reply and I can answer any questions you may have.

I have a Twin Spires account and wagered online until Texas banned the site. Now I have to go to Lone Star park to wager. It is a pain in the butt. :mad:. Do you have a track near you?

I'm in the same boat with you guys. I have to drive to Louisiana Downs to wager. I play Derby Wars during the week, and go to the track on Saturdays. For what it's worth, the tournaments have helped my game at the track.

NOTICE: I sold the software. But I did love it.

Be VERY CAREFUL betting at 5Dimes or any other offshore. They're reputable, but eventually, the Feds are going to go after these, and your money may be tied up for months, if indeed you even get it back.

Looks nobody is responding to my request,, any one have any idea on why he will not release the original dongle again>??

I have the software, with dongle and fully functional/updated. I'm selling it with ALL the seminar/workshop material, going back to 1992: audios, videos, workbooks, etc. and including 48 episodes of the Forum.
The program does make money, and Pizzolla shows exactly how it can be done via the seminars and Forum material. In one of the seminars, he examines a number of races for the next day, explains which he will pass and why, and then goes on to show why he picked the races he did, how he structured his tickets, and then proceeded to bet them LIVE right in the seminar. The Vegas casino where it was held had a racebook with two tellers set up right in the seminar room. His wagers that afternoon netted over $14,000. He is the only software creator I know that shows you LIVE how to use and wager with his program, and shows you his tickets (win or lose). He does this throughout his various presentations, and brought home over $8,000 in an afternoon at another live seminar.
My own experience as a straight win bettor has been a 21% win with a 1.76 roi. The program is very pace oriented and, as I'm not a pace fan, my plays have been few. I prefer handicapping the connections rather than the horses. Other players on the Forum that have shared info with me are getting around a 26% win ratio, nearly the same roi, but getting many more plays. The only program I've used that comes close to hitting so many longshots is TruLine.
I am selling my Black Magic software because I've finally been able to understand and take everything I want from it and put it into my own program, with all my trainer, owner, breeder jockey insights (which Michael totally ignores).
The program went through several evolutions (all progressive, worthwhile, not just tweeks or correcting mistakes): Master Handicapper, Master Magician, Master Magician with ValueTech and, now, Black Magic (itself improved twice). Michael limited sales of these from almost the beginning. He doesn't need to sell software to make a living. He's got what he wants now---a small community of active users that share insghts/ scores on a regular basis (the Forum). He's also readily and reliably available by email and phone. You don't need to share anything if you own the program but the support is there.
It uses PTD files, and for about $100 a month you get every track every day results included.
Drop me a line if your interest is serious.
