First off, I would suggest that you buy The Racing Form the day before you go. Then study, Study, STUDY! Compare times of the past performaces, class of fields the horses were competing in, and then compare the horses of whose been competing with who. If your in an area where the horses are competing at different race tracks during the racing meet, consider the favorability that one track has over another. If it takes you more than 30 minutes to determine the top two or three likely winners in a given field, skip that race entirely and don't bet on it! Use your handicapping skills to determine who you feel will WIN the race. Some suggestions is after you've determined who the winner is, consider the morning line odds. Personally, I do not bet of the favorite. If I feel that the favorite cannot be beat, I look for the horse that I believe will run second, thus setting up my exacta bets. If there are two horses that are so close to competitiveness, then I suggest that you watch videos of past performances. Some tracks do allow you to view particular races from different days. Try to determine why one horse who you think should have won did not that particular day. Now, you have a pretty good idea of what horses you are going to bet on. Finally, I would suggest to watch them in the Paddock. Little things can tell you about the horses attitude and emotional state in the paddock. Usually, this does not affect my overall decision of who I would bet on, but it gives you a feel of how confident you are with your choices. Finally, determine your bet. If your in it for the money, only bet for the WIN! Also, if your seeking to make the big bucks, have your minimum bet be $5. As a suggestion to avoiding 'losing your shirt', determine the amount of money your going to bet that day, whether it's $20 or $100. Put that money in your right pocket, make your bet with the change remaining in your right pocket. If you cash in a ticket, take your original betting money out of that and put it back into your right pocket. With the remaining amount, put it in your left pocket and LEAVE IT THERE! When your right pocket is empty, then you are done betting for the day. Just for background, I have done this for a week myself. I approached the betting window with the attitude of a "professional gambler", i.e. when the money is gone, it is gone. I spent hours the day before studying the Racing Form, comparing fields, times, jockeys, race tracks, and other conditions. One particular time, a horse that I felt should have won a previous race in a pass performance ran third. Viewing that particular race in video, I seen why that horse lost that particular day and knew he would win. I started with $20 in my right pocket, and averaged about betting around 7 races for the day. Being that I was in it for the money, I bet a minimum of $5 and always for the WIN as long as the horse was not the favorite. During this week, I walked out of the track with the lowest amount in my left pocket being $50, the highest was $400. The reason why I gave it up was even though it was considered "easy money", it felt like I had just worked a 10 hour day of hard physical labor the next morning. The stress factor was gettng to be too much. Good luck and enjoy the races!

This is great information! Sounds as if you've done it quite a few times before, but you're sensible about it. This sounds like too much work for me, too. I'll stick with the slots!

Yea, it's alot of work. It's like working a regular 9 to 5 job this way. That might be another reason why I gave it up. I didn't want to work that hard.
