Michael Kipness ‘ The Wizard’
It’s hard to talk about Wizard Race and Sports without talking about Michael Kipness ‘The Wizard.’ So let’s start there, as it is with him where it all began. In his late twenties, after being an avid horse fan his entire life, Michael started “The Wizard Selection Sheet” in the fall of 1987. Its goal was to analyze races and make daily selections for the New York Racing Association (NYRA) circuit. Eventually, ‘The Wizard’s’ sheet grew legs and expanded well beyond New York.
To produce the sheet back then, Michael would handicap the day’s card, type the sheet, print and fold copies, and then drive around New York City in the wee hours of the morning distributing to newsstands. Times have changed, technology has advanced, and ‘The Wizards’ products are now available everywhere over the internet. However, one thing has not changed: Wizard Rae and Sports continues to set the standard for handicapping selections and advice.
After years of publishing his content on other sites, Michael realized that the huge-yet-simple goal of finding high quality handicapping on his level for all sports was nearly impossible. After wading through the charlatans to find one or two handicappers that did there homework as ‘The Wizard’ has since 1987, he knew there had to be a better way. With the goal in mind to demystify the handicapping world for the novice and experienced gambler, Michael set out on a mission.
That’s when Michael met Zachary Weiner, who was searching for his next venture in the technology field and had been ‘The Wizards’ customer for years. Before long, Michael and Zachary went from talking horses to revolutionizing the entire handicapping industry. That’s when Wizard Race and Sports was born.
