Angles are a way of picking winners from the past performances using a set of rules. The great thing about an angle is that once the rules are learned, there is not a lot of judgment required.
Many handicappers seem to prefer to handicap an entire race card as if they are some sort of chess master, playing the races like a chess board.
And I can understand this attempt at becoming a master class handicapper. But still, I’ve never been a big fan of a robust method of handicapping. The type of analysis that takes into account every conceivable factor, and then weighs all of these variables to make a selection.
I have attempted this type of handicapping, but when I began to use angles for selecting winners, I found that I was spending less time handicapping, and I also discovered that I was winning at the same rate.
The angles I have written about are those I use betting at harness tracks in race books in Las Vegas. Some of the angles in this book work better at some tracks than others, but the ones I have included here work at the largest number of tracks that I have researched.
In a previous book I wrote, 19 Valuable Horse Racing Betting Systems, I explained angles for harness racing, along with thoroughbred and quarter horse angles. The three harness angles in that book have been reprinted in this book, but everything else appears here for the first time.
The rules of the handicapping angles in this book are clearly explained and easy to use.
