Which Trifecta Structures Win Most Often?

Do you make the exact same style of wager every time you hit the teller's window? Are you stuck on a three-dog box?

Analyzing a Handicapping Factor: Does Time Make the Grade?

There is probably a better way of doing it! Over the years, I've studied many different handicapping factors, and many ideas about wagering. The interesting idea that has come from all that is, you can't handicap every race the same. There is a better way!

A Little Different Way of Looking at That Trifecta Box

When I'm playing trifectas, I have a method where I classify all races as one of three types, with each type contributing about an equal number of races. There is one of the three sets of races that had been tougher to get to be profitable, so I sat down at the computer one day to get it figured out. It turned out to be an interesting lesson in wagering strategies.

Who Can Beat the Favorite in the #1 Box? The Favorite in the #6 Box!

Some things just don't work out the way you expect. In greyhound racing, many things that you think you know, aren't actually true. Things are counter-intuitive! For example, let's say you have a crowd favorite starting from the #1 box. And in another race, you have an equally-strong favorite starting from the #6 box. Which one has the higher probability of winning?

Who's the Favorite???

Considering only the greyhounds' talent, how often is the best dog in the #1 box? How often is the best dog in the #2 box? How about the #3 box?...

Structuring Trifecta Wagers: Avoiding the Lazy Wager

I bet (if you'll pardon the pun!) that you've never heard of "lazy wagering" before. I see this all the time at the track, and am guilty of it myself from time to time. But I'm trying to get better!

I think it happens because handicapping the greyhounds is more exciting than deciding which wagers to make. And I think people fall into lazy wagering because they get into the habit of handicapping each race and then making the same old wager every time. Boy, does that cost people a lot of money.

I ran into this when I was working on some races at Orange Park. I was confronted with a series of grade A races that I wanted to play.
