Welcome to our new blog. Here you’ll find news about horse racing that applies to you, the ValueCapper, handicapper, investor, breeder, owner, or trainer. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Michael Pizzolla, President of Post Time Solutions, Inc. and co-author of the best-selling book Handicapping Magic and the classic Pace Makes The Race, former charter member of PIRCO, and I’ve been called a pioneer in computer handicapping for having the first company to put a full featured racing form online (even before there was an internet!)
This blog will be a combination of curated articles. Every day, I scour the web to find information that will be of interest to the ValueCapper and handicapper. No puff pieces about how a billionaire owner loves his new 2 year old filly, but solid information that you can use. In addition, you’ll find articles and videos about the art and science of ValueCapping™, finding horses you like that the public shouldn’t.
I’ve included a number of older posts that have been scattered around the web on various websites, so there all in one place for your reading and searching public.
