Wizards’ Forum Audio Series 2 Part 9. Describing a process that will massively improve your ValueCapping™
I handicap horses in these categories: pace, track favorability, condition favorability, jockey, workout, class, distance, and breeding. How should I rank these factors? Which are more and less important?
Ultimately you have to figure these things out for yourself; handicapping is an art and not a science. My experience is that every race is different–class may determine one result, another will be settled by pure speed, some are won by jockeys, and still others come down to breeding. You have to look at each race individually. As the discipline is an art, you have to develop your own style and hone it as the results dictate.

My father taught me the most important lesson I ever learned about betting horses. Don't bet the horse, bet the odds board.
Example: If you handicap a horse to win and the horse is even money, forget him, find a better bet, even if you know the even money shot is going to win.
I've been betting horses, and winning, since I was 12, about 42 years ago. This is the best lesson I ever learned.
It doesn't answer the handicapping question (current form, curren class, current success of connections) but it may help in winning more money, and I think that's what you are looking for.
