RULE 1: The amount you wager on any race should be within your comfort level.
RULE 2: Do not force bets. Passing a race is just as important as betting one. There is always tomorrow.
RULE 3: Increase the amount you wager when you are winning, decrease when you are losing.
RULE 4: Be flexible in your thinking. Late scratches, a track bias spotted during the day and physical appearance are just some of the factors that can change the complexion of a race and wagers.
RULE 5: Do not be a slave to one type of handicapping system or school of thought. Rely on your instincts!
RULE 6: Each race requires a different betting strategy, especially with the vast wagering opportunities.
RULE 7: Research quality on-line wagering sites which offer cash rebates. Playing without one puts you at a big disadvantage.
RULE 8: The mute button on your remote allows you to tune out racing analysts who hurt you more than help you.
RULE 9: Don’t believe you can’t make money betting favorites. Exactas, Trifectas, Pick 3’s-4’s and other multi-race wagers are options to just simple Win betting.
RULE 10: Don’t listen to “inside information”. Win or lose, these horses are usually way over-bet.
