About Horse Race Handicappers

Our Horse Racing Handicappers Pick Winning SelectionsHorse Race Handicappers was formed in 2005 by Mr. Ted Whitley. The group was founded as a resource center to collect and provide information not found in the “Past Performances” papers. Today, Horse Race Handicappers gathers inside information based on our staff’s personal relationships with trainers, jockeys, and veterinarians. We can then use this information to make selections as to which horses we expect to do well on a specific day an in a given race.

How We are Different from Other Horse Racing Handicappers

Our Unique Handicapping Formula

The primary difference that sets us apart from other horse racing handicappers is our unique handicapping methods. We use a massive data center with complex computer programs designed specifically for our group. These programs can record hourly information including barometric pressure, moon phase’s, and soil moisture content at hundreds of racetrack locations simultaneously. Each of these factors can have a varying effect on each horse’s performance in any given race. Therefore, this is a crucial part of what set our horse race handicappers apart.

  • Barometric Pressure: Falling barometric pressure can have a very negative physical and psychological affect on all animals. This will influence a horse’s performance. In fact, many race horses will not run as a result of pressure changes.
  • Moon Phases: Many animals, including humans, will act differently during the different phases of the moon. This can change the personality and temperament of some horses drastically resulting in significant changes in race performance.

Access to Inside Information

Another crucial element that sets our horse racing handicappers apart from the competition is our ability to obtain detailed and non-public information about events that happen in the barns and backstretches of a racetrack. It has become one of the primary responsibilities of The Whitley Girls to establish and maintain relationships with many jockeys, trainers, veterinarians, and handlers. This allows us to gather relevant information to which we would otherwise not have access. Such information may include if a horse is recovering from a hoof ailment or surgery or simply if a horse has quieted down with the addition of a goat in his stall.

Uncovering Corruption

Learn About Our Horse Racing Handicappers & Our SelectionsA final element that makes our horse racing handicappers superior to other handicappers is our ability and dedication to spotting corruption. We understand and recognize that the combination of men and money can sometimes spell corruption. Therefore, our staff is committed to watching hundred’s of race replays and examining any exotic payoff that appears out of line. For example, the $2.00 trifecta that only pays $120.00 with the post time favorite and second choice not in the top three is simply out of line with what it should pay. Trifecta wagering is the most popular form of wagering in corrupt circles because the trifecta “will pays” are not shown on the track’s monitors.

Our horse racing handicapping staff members will watch the replays for horses that are asked not to run or are not allowed to run in a specific race. We make sure to know which horses this applies to so that the next time they are entered, we can make our clients aware that the results from the horse’s last race appeared suspicious.
