The # 1 Money Making Secret to Win Big At The Dog Track

Win With Eb Netr
Do you lose money at the track? A lot? Too much? Well, as far as I'm concerned, losing any amount is too much. The whole idea of going to the dog track, whether you go for business or pleasure, is to go home with more money than you walked in there with.
Most people though - nine out of ten of them - lose money every time they go to the races. This isn't fun and it's not good business. Here's how they lose and what you have to do to go home a winner.

How to Save Money & Win More

Win With Eb Netr

If you can make money "sometimes" you can make money all the time. It's trite, but true. Can you spot a winner often enough to go home with a profit, at least once in awhile at the dog track? Well, if you can, then you've mastered the basics of greyhound handicapping.

Now, all you need to do is learn how to make that work for you consistently, and you also need to work on money management. Nine times out of ten, when decent handicappers aren't making a profit, it's because they're losing money through poor betting judgment.

1981 American Greyhound Derby

How to Break A Losing Streak

Winning with Eb Netr...

We've all had them. Losing streaks are pretty depressing, especially if you don't know why you're having one. All of a sudden, you stop hitting winners and start picking losers. It seems like the universe is laughing at you by making your dogs fall down on the turn, get bumped on the break and fade right before the finish line. As a friend of mine once said, "It's heart-rendering."

I've had plenty of losing streaks and I get just as bummed out as the next person, although I shouldn't after all these years. I don't always practice what I preach, so sometimes it takes a while for the fact that I'm on a losing streak to filter through my thick head.

How To Handicap Route Races

Winning With Eb Netr...
There are far more sprint races - shorter races usually at 5/16ths of a mile or 550 yds - than route races at most tracks. Route races are around 610-660 yds. Marathons are a type of route race that is even longer, but there aren't many marathons at any track, so we'll stick with 660 yd routes for this discussion.
I like route races, though many don't. One of the things I like about routes is that they last longer than sprints and the dogs have more time to jockey for position and actually use some finesse to work their way up to the lead. The finish of a route is often exciting also, because dogs that close sometimes come charging up and nip the leaders at the wire. Routes are more like horse races to my mind.
That said, handicapping routes is a little different from picking winners in sprints.
