Why I Don’t Watch Horse Races

I don’t watch horses races.

Okay, that’s sort of a lie. I watch the occasional race if I am specifically interested in it.

But for the most part, I don’t watch many races.


Because it’s quicker and easier to analyze an up and coming race by looking at form and statistics compared to watching all of the relevant horse races.

Yes, I do enjoy the races when I do watch them.

And yes,

I’m going to miss out on some of the more detailed information that could be picked up on by watching the races, but it’s impossible to take into account every single piece of information when analyzing a horse race.

So your going to get more bang for your time if you spend it analyzing stats as a pose to individual races.

There are two main reasons for getting interested in horse racing.

The first is for the possibility of making money if you can analyze races well enough to be able to make intelligent value bets.

The second is for the pure enjoyment of the sport.

If the first reason is your primary motivation but you have no enjoyment of the sport, you will likely lose interest before putting in enough time to become a profitable bettor.

If your main motivation for being interested in horse racing is simply because you enjoy the sport, you might end up with a deep knowledge of the sport, but are never likely to become a winning bettor.

But if your primary motivation is the money and you have enough enjoyment of the sport to keep your interest then you have a good chance of eventually being able to turn a profit from your own selections.

And the easiest way to do that is by spending your time learning how to study form.
