Going to the race track all the time and working at it like a full time job isn’t easy. You have to make connections, learn a good system, and then keep your ears and eyes open. Over the years I learned a lot of ways to lose at the races and a few good ways to win. But even when I was winning, it wasn’t easy. I had to work very hard.
How do you prepare yourself to go to the race track? You probably put on a clean shirt, brush your teeth, comb your hair, and head for the races. While you might look presentable and they won’t stop you from entering the premises on grounds of poor hygiene, are you really prepared? I mean prepared to bet real money on the races and to win with your bets.
The best way to make money betting on horse races is to try to develop into a complete horse player. Learn some good angles, and systems, but also have people you can rely on for a tip or two now and then. Read everything you can get your hands on relating to the races and keep an open mind. Developing your mind is the number one way to beat the other people who go to the races and try to get lucky.
Then there are the people who get horse racing tips, sometimes free tips, that they use to make money. As we all know, when it comes to information, there is good information and bad information. When I used to own race horses, I heard plenty of both. I got so I could tell which bits of info were good and which ones were stinkers, usually just by knowing the source. Some people gave good tips and others stunk.
While luck does play a small part in winning when you’re gambling, the pros who make a living at it win by being better prepared than the average player.
People who win money betting on horses know how to handicap the horse races. Many of them have a system they’ve used for years, though they may have tweaked it a little here and there because things do change. Other people use an angle.
A good horse racing angle is something that comes along that a wise bettor can take advantage of. It may be something to do with the odds, weights, jockeys, etc. It is often a combination of circumstances that the average horse player doesn’t see or understand but stands out like a flashing light to the wise player.
