Horse racing systems are sets of ‘rules’ used by a punter to decide which horse to place his money on. ‘Punter’ is slang for someone who bets on horse races. In the same way that the successful stock market investor would not dream of placing all his money in a single stock, the smart punter will maintain a ‘portfolio’ of systems to take account of performance fluctuations.

Every race has a ‘favorite’. This is the horse that the most people believe has the best chance of winning. Since the bookie needs to win more money on bets than he loses, the favorite is also the horse with the shortest odds. Betting on the favorite is the ‘safest’ bet because they are likely to win. The drawback, however, is that they won’t win a lot of money. One system used by investors is to bet on the second favorite. This is the horse with the second-shortest odds.

The second favorite has just as good a chance at winning the race as the favorite, but it has longer odds. This means that the payout will be greater. Apparently, this system of betting is more effective on grass, or turf courses. It is not clear why this should be so. It has a one in four ‘strike rate’, or chance of succeeding.

One strategy with an even higher strike rate than second favorite betting is to choose what is known as a ‘beaten favorite’. This is a good horse, early in its career, that was the bookies’ favorite in its immediately previous race but it did not come in first on that occasion. Again, these horses are underbet, even their chance of winning is every bit as good as the actual favorite. With a strike rate of nearly fifty per cent, this method is also more applicable to grass course.

Some people like to use the ‘next day runner’ method on turf courses. These horses ran the day before and is today’s favorite. As with ‘second favorite’ and ‘beaten favorite’, these horses have longer odds because fewer people are betting on them.

As opposed to turf racing, all weather racing is conducted on an artificial surface. Punters tend to use different methods for determining which runner to back. These methods tend to have very exacting rules. One example is to bet on a runner that has run at least once in the past four weeks, and has also run three days previously to the race under consideration. This seems to work out better for males than females, although it is difficult to understand why.

Another popular betting sport, at least in the United Kingdom, is greyhound racing. A pack of dogs chase an artificial rabbit. This breed of punter uses a different sort of system and tends to use computer software.

Using horse racing systems may or may not improve your chances of winning a bet. It is possible to become addicted to gambling. Never, ever, bet more money than you can afford to throw away.
