Horse Racing Software
If you are a horse racing enthusiast, you have probably
found yourself wondering how some people seem to have a
talent for picking winners week after week. Their secret
is most likely the horse racing software that they use.
While it is possible to analyse horse races by
hand, it is incredibly time consuming to enter data for
recent horse races, and to use that data to calculate
likely winners based on handicaps, speed and form ratings
and other metrics. The pros no longer do that job by hand,
they rely on software to do it for them.

Horse racing software
can help you to make a true income (not just a few pounds
on the side) through betting on horse races. What's more,
in the UK any income you make from gambling is tax free,
so gambling can become very profitable very quickly!
Horse racing software will help you to decide which
horses to back, and you will be getting recommendations
based on hard facts and figures - not 'inside information'
or 'sure things'. Software takes the emotion out of
The different kinds of horse racing
There are many different kinds of
software. Some software provides analysis and information,
while others allow the automation of betting or help you
to monitor the performance of your bets. Let's take a look
at the different kinds of betting software.
Some staking plan software
automates the placing of bets on your favourite online
sportsbook. After you configure the software, it
calculates your bets based on your chosen staking plan,
and places bets for you automatically. This hands-free
betting system is great if you trust the software,
understand your betting style and have a clearly defined
budget, although there is some potential for it to go
wrong if you configure it incorrectly.
If you are just getting started with
betting, use a bet tracker and a staking calculator to
monitor your bets. Over time, this software will analyse
your betting patterns and make recommendations based on
your betting style.
Prediction software could revolutionise your sports
betting. This software takes information such as race
cards, horse form information, jockey and trainer
statistics, speed ratings and more, and uses that to
predict the outcome of races. There are a few companies
that provide this kind of software. Most of them work
using a subscription model, so you pay a monthly fee to
get both software updates and data updates. It is worth
trying a few of these kinds of software, and tracking the
results that each one offers. Once you find one that you
trust, you can use it for your betting needs, and should
make the money back for the subscription fee within a few
If you like to place
manual bets, then a bet calculator that lets you calculate
round robin, lucky 15, yankee and other bet types will
save you a lot of time. This kind of tool is handy to have
on your computer for those occasions when your
non-gambling friends ask for advice about which bet to
place, for example when the Grand National is coming up,
or they feel like a social flutter on another race.
If you want to know what odds are
offered for a race, or want to get an at-a-glance view of
which bets you should back and lay, then odds-tracking
software will be very useful. Some of the more advanced
betting suites offer this built-in, and there are other
applications that specialise in just this one feature.
Horse racing betting is still gambling
important to note that even if you use sports betting
software, and find that the predictions that the software
offers are generally reliable, betting on horse races is
still gambling. While you can predict that one horse is
usually a better performer than the others in the race,
things can go wrong and a horse or a jockey can have a bad
day. For this reason, you should not gamble with money
that you cannot afford to lose.
The most successful
horse racing gamblers are the ones that understand how to
manage their bankrolls. They have a certain amount to bet
with each day, and they limit their spending accordingly.
They reinvest some of their winnings, but also pull some
out as a 'payment' for themselves. This means that even if
they lose a bet or two, they still come out on top long
