Are you categorizing your results per particular track?

About 20 years ago I played several real longshot systems. Like minimum pays were around $20, and 2-4 horses per race.

Won my first bet for $2 that paid $62, then lost 163 in a row.

Stopped playing after 3 days. It was very depressing.

At the end of the week I backtested and found I would have been winner if I'd kept playing.

Decided that for me the psychotherapy and medication would cost more than I would make. LOL

Are you betting real money? If so, are you getting rebates? Rebates obviously help the bottom line.

Are you betting a fixed amount or a proportional amount that is based on your betting wealth, projected payoff, and edge?

If your system is profitable flat betting will increase your betting wealth, but proportional betting will maximize your betting wealth. Although, with proportional betting your wealth will likely shrink quite a bit after 50 losses in a row!

Yes. I've posted before, I bet REAL MONEY on every play I post in VIP.

Hell, I AM UP 15% after 347 plays in this current run. It's not like I'm losing...lol

That is the only way to know for sure if you can win. There is nothing like betting real money.

I'm late to the party. I just deleted my facebook account. I've got some catching up to do around here. LOL

Aren't you curious to find out if track selection might greatly improve your overall results? The probability that your handicapping method is universally applicable is basically nil...IMO. By excluding certain unfavorable racetracks, your results might astonish you.

I agree. When I automated the Dr. Z system there were some tracks that were extremely profitable and others that consistently lost. Eventually, I dropped the losing tracks and only bet the winning tracks. Then eventually, the rest of the world caught on and none of them were profitable.

The problem with a system is that it might work for awhile, but if someone else starts betting your horses because they found the same advantage you found then your profits disappear.

Strike while the iron is hot!
