Betting on horses mostly is a percentages game in which the experienced bettor can hold a significant advantage over beginning bettors when breaking up horses into various categories. Experienced horse bettors are more familiar with horses and their race histories and can use racing forms to gather more information on all horses in a race. But that does not mean beginning bettors can help themselves to improve their handicapping skills through some simple steps that help to better track horses and to make bettors better at winning money. Creating a simple spreadsheet and tracking the results of races and particular horses over a period of even a few months can help bettors to generate more profit and increase their enjoyment of wagering on horses.
