Equisim - Still available somewhere?

I've heard a lot of good things about an older program called Equisim. I'd like to check it out but it seems to have vanished from the web.


Anyone know if it's still possible to obtain a current version of Equisim?

Pace Handicapping Education Before Getting RDSS?

Thanks very much for your input.



I've read good things about RDSS in the forums and I like the helpful, clear and friendly way that Ted Craven writes. RDSS is on my short list of software methods I'm interested in checking out. Good to hear your experience with RDSS has been so positive.


One thing that causes me to procrastinate about trying RDSS is that I assume I'll need a solid understanding and appreciation of complex pace handicapping concepts and skills before RDSS can be properly utilized. Since the money back trial period is 30 days I'd rather not take 27 of those crucial days getting a handle on the complexities of pace handicapping.



I've ordered a copy of Tom Brohammer's Modern Pace Handicapping (Year 2000 version) but of course it might be a while before I become the next pace handicapping genius.


Do you think I'll be able to get much out of RDSS before reading Modern Pace Handicapping?

Ted can always help you with anything. You may have to learn everything about the software but it’s doesn’t take like 3 months just a few weeks and you can start betting when your fully confident. Head on over to Pace and Cap.com, and read the posts about things to look for and what each of the software parts mean. My posts are on there too with me asking questions (I am 16 and still learning with RDSS) good luck!

Thanks again for your valuable input.



I will definitely check out the RDSS Pace & Cap Forum. I look forward to using software that is so highly recommended by so many handicappers.

Looks like He took down “thorotech.com”

I see he has a profile on LinkedIn

But if he took it down, he’s probably done with it.

I still run it on my laptop.

Thanks for the info.


I've heard so many good things I'd like to get a copy from the Thorotech guy if at all possible. I have a LinkedIn account but I rarely use LinkedIn and I don't see how I can look someone up on that site.


Any ideas on how I can reach him?

I tried to send him an email at an old address and it bounced. I also tried to message him on LinkedIn and he doesn’t accept messages. There are some other members here who might have a new address. Let’s see if anybody comments

Top left box on Linkedin. type name into search function. Works if members are still active.

Best way to find old programs from years ago is this:

Well he supported it and kept the website up long after he lost interest. Hope he is doing well.

I'm so old and slow I hate to start up with new software. I hit a pick 6 with Quickhorse many years ago so I may try it again.

Equisim 6.0.17 --Anyone interested in selling?

I'm interested in buying the most recent version 6.0.17 of Equisim ROI if anyone is interested in selling.



I haven't been able to reach Nathan of Thorotech who created Equisim. If anyone knows how to reach him, I would appreciate the information. Thanks.

The latest version is actually 6.0.0.19; Nathan didn't update his site to reflect that. There wasn't a changelog so I don't know what the differences are. ES has copy protection so buying a "used" copy won't help you unless you can register it with Nathan. As plainolebill posted, he kept supporting EquiSim long after health concerns and a certain lack of interest kept him from developing it further. There was a thread about ES here several months ago and I am pretty sure he sold a few more copies. He probably decided then that supporting it was getting to be too much of a hassle.

ES was a fine program, and Nathan was a really helpful developer and all around good guy from what little I know of him. I was sad to see that v6 would be the last version, but I wish him all the best.

That’s right. If you install a copy it won’t run without the right credentials, coded by Nathan.

Nathan and I got together at his home near Cleveland many years ago. Most detailed programmer I’d ever seen. I’ve been around a few. He showed me some of the code he was working on for the future. His thinking was very forward looking. I think he was still on version 5 then.

We used to log on and play together sometimes just me n him. Afternoons. He liked to play fairgrounds if I remember right. He hit a couple of pic 6 tickets there if my memory is right.
He was a damn good player.

He also used to lead a group that played in the war room here every once in a while. Lots of fun playing Sam Houston and Hollywood.

He went through some serious personal issues and kind of fell away from racing.
