Since 1985, Software Exchange LLC at http://sportssoft.net has been offering simple and inexpensive sports handicapping systems for predicting the outcome of thoroughbred, harness and greyhound races. The book details a step-by-step approach to design a winning handicapping system for use in any personal computer. Designs use simple mathematical formulas and past performance data in an attempt to predict the outcome of a race, and several factors seem to make a difference when trying to pick the winners including race length, starting position, speed rating, total times, post positions at various points in the race, class assigned to the horse and odds of winning. Speed and pace are very important.
