Who Are You Guys?

We (Michael ‘The Wizard’ & Zachary) are two friends who have always been fascinated by the convergence of technology and sports handicapping, realizing we could merge the two to create value for gamblers worldwide. This led our team to build the most user-friendly handicapping website, with access to real-time analysis and the best customer service experience within the sports handicapping industry.

We set out to leverage our decades of experience as a professional horse handicapper and technologist to modernize the handicapping industry by ensuring everyone has access to the most thoroughly researched best real-time picks.

Our Mission

Wizard Race and Sports’ mission is to provide the best handicapping products for the novice and experienced players. We believe that everyone should have access to great handicapping products with integrity from real industry experts with decades of experience in their industry who actually wager on the selections they sell.

Gone are the days when you paid premium prices for horse racing, MLB, NFL, NHL, and other sports picks completed in minutes. Our team spends hours preparing our selections and backs it up with detailed analysis. Unlike these charlatans, our professional handicappers do their homework, and you can see this clearly in all our premium products.

Not only should these be the best picks, but the information should be simple and easy to understand. So we’ve created Wizard Race and Sports from the ground up to make educating, researching, picking winners*, handicapping, and interacting with other handicappers, transparent and approachable for newcomers and experts alike. We facilitate the handicapping of multiple sports with hand-chosen experts. Sports handicapping has traditionally been veiled and shadowy. We strive to inject professionalism, clarify, and a lot of excitement!

*Our lawyers tell us that it’s essential to make it clear that Wizard Race and Sports, its affiliates, directors, and owners do not guarantee wins or the picks’ performance. Picks and selections are the sole opinions of the handicappers and not the company.

Offering a unique approach to our products, we offer multiple products for both the first time buyer and the seasoned pro. ‘The Wizard’ changed the horse handicapping industry in the ’90s with his transparent and useful ‘The Wizard Selection Sheet.’

If you want to get access to the best sports handicapping in the world, there is no better place to be without paying a small fortune to do so. Click here to view our handicapping products today.

Depending on your track of choice, we recommend you visit the following pages to make your purchase:

How Do I Access the Late Picks and Scratch Updates?


What separates ‘The Wizard’ from his competition is he is a real handicapper. So when the field changes last minute, you have the most up to date betting approaches. Included in all our horse strategies offerings at Wizard Race and Sports are the late picks and scratch updated. These will be displayed within your dashboard (in the top right corner, it will say ‘Scratch Updates’) and will be emailed to you in a PDF format (the subject will say ‘Scratch Updates Track Date’).

Do You Bet Your Horse Racing Picks?


Of Course! We won’t give our selection if we are not personally playing. If our team is not playing, you won’t send out the picks. ‘The Wizard’ is a professional handicapper and gambler first, and a handicapper advisor and consultant second.

Why Do You Recommend Horse Race Betting on Other Websites?


Wizard Race and Sports is not a betting site, we propose statistics and picks on races, but you cannot bet them here. The websites we recommend to bet at are among the most trusted names in online horse racing wagering and offer great promotions to new players. Betting online has the advantage of efficiency and convenience, but you should only use websites that you can trust.

What Racetracks Do You Offer Horse Racing Picks on (Handicapping Products)?


Wizard Race and Sports gives you access to information and picks on all the races at major US racetracks (click on the following links to access): AqueductBelmont ParkChurchill DownsDel MarGulfstreamKeenelandOaklawn ParkSanta Anita, and Saratoga. Other racetracks, Standardbred horse racing, and International racing may be added to the website in the future.

Why Do You Not Cover All the Horse Racing Tracks?


While our competitors may offer picks on all horse racing tracks, Wizard Race and Sports does not provide for a few reasons:

1) Quality – Successfully handicapping a race is both an art and a science. To do so effectively, we focus on doing a few tracks well versus lots of tracks poorly (like our competitors).
2) ROI – Betting every race at every track is not a profitable gambling endeavor; you will end up eliminating your bankroll and will have a limited ROI (return on investment).
3) Variability – The major race tracks have horses and trainers that we have clear track records with precise approaches. This approach allows us to make better picks and, in turn, gives you better odds.

Why are you telling me this? At Wizard Race and Sports, we believe in transparency and honesty, and that is why we are always transparent.

Why Are You More Expensive Than Your Competitors?


It’s simple. We aren’t offering the same products. We have a team of handicappers led by ‘The Wizard,’ who invented the strategies card you see our competitors selling today. With over three decades of horse racing handicapping expertise, there is simply nothing that exists on the market like our products.

Do You Offer Trials or Discounts on Your Horse Racing Products?


No. Our product is simply the best, so we do not offer trials or discounts.

This feature allows your account to be automatically billed and renewed on a set date determined by the billing term you sign up for.

To discontinue this automatic renewal feature, the user will need to click on billing and then choose Cancel Membership from the drop-down menu. On this page, there will be a button that says Yes, cancel my account. Click on that to cancel future payments. Your account will remain active for the duration of paid time

How Do I Upgrade or Downgrade My Membership?

You can change your membership subscription type at any point. The below steps will show you how to do so from within your account and how it will affect your subscription.

This area also allows you to upgrade your account from Basic to Premium, or upgrade to a lower rate if you wish to remain longer. When you select any other billing option on this page, the “Credit Calculator” will display, showing you how much money will be credited towards your upgrade from what you have previously paid.

Manage Billing: This section will show all credit card transactions on your account and when they occurred.

Cancel Membership: If your subscription is currently active, you can cancel your recurring billing by clicking on Cancel Recurring Billing.

Please note one time purchases do not qualify for recurring billings.

On this page, the user can add time to the account by selecting a subscription length, either monthly, quarterly, or yearly, and enter in their credit card information for billing purposes.

The account’s properties will be activated immediately for the public to view after payment has been processed.

Best Practices

Here are some steps you can take to secure your Wizard Race and Sports account.

Use unique passwords: One of the most important things you can do is use a unique password for your Wizard Race and Sports account. If you’ve ever used the same password for more than one website, you should create new and unique passwords for each. (Or better yet, use a tool such as 1Password or LastPass to help you manage your passwords across multiple services.)

Create strong passwords: A great way to make a strong password is to use a passphrase that’s easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess. You can also consider using a combination of uppercase, lowercase, symbols, and numbers as well.
Rotate your password: Consider changing your password every once and a while to make sure it’s always fresh and secure.

Never share your password: Remember that Wizard Race and Sports Support will never ask for your account password or credentials regarding your account.

Monitoring

Paying attention to your account is one of the best ways to stay secure from malicious actors. It’s essential to remain vigilant and keep an eye on your activity. See an email notifying you of a login or account update you don’t recognize? Was there a new device attached to your account? Alert us. Let us know about unauthorized activity in your account as soon as you see it, and we’ll work to secure your account, so you keep control of your information and money.
