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.
