50 years of handicapping - Today
I never did figure out how to successfully
handicap all the different kinds of races.
I could only do a small subset under
likeable conditions. I was good enough to
make the major leagues as they say.
It would be like being a middle innings
relief pitcher. When called to play, I
could perform very well. But I would
never be an everyday player, would never be a
MVP or make the Hall of Fame. Not a bad life
for a couple of years but you quickly
realize you should be planning to move on.
Perhaps you can do
better. If so, then I think it will take you
a while to integrate my knowledge into your
racing system. It should take you considerable time
to fully test it and fine-tune your reports before
you are ready to seriously try your luck. It is
like going to school to get a PhD. Plan for
lots and lots of homework and study. I still
love racing but now as a fan and not a participant.
