When assessing horses for various win potentials, among factors for which bettors should always account are track, surface type, race length, track conditions. So when a race is run at Hollywood Park, the bettor can record the order of finish for all horses, race length, track conditions, weather and surface type as well as the venue. After some time of doing so, patterns can emerge and bettors can better identify horses that stand a greater probability of running well as a particular track under particular conditions. When strong likelihoods are identified, the bettor can check the horse’s recent running and workout history as well as the jockey’s stats to make a fully informed wager that stands a much higher chance of putting money in the pockets of bettors.
