Older Comments about Winning Hit...

Close as I could find to a topic about winning wagers. Two years ago I finally stopped lying to myself and realized that although the handicapping was fine, the translation to wagers was not, so I set out to correct that. Long an advocate of the impact value of factors in race handicapping (by authors Quirin and Fred Davis) I realized that all of them were described in a parimutuel vacuum: there relevance was all on the handicapping side of the equation and nothing related to HOW THE PUBLIC used them as well via the pools at the track. I discoverd POLL IMPACT VALUES. Rather than only look at what factors (know to be realted to the choice of winners) the horses had, but WHAT FACTORS THE CROWD were betting on so that you could find the predicitve ones in IV and not those the crowd bets on.......The greatest shift of logic in the many years I have followed racing as it shifted ones choice of horses NOT based upon their performances alone, but rather on what the CROWD thought of those performances......Great stuff...Winning Hit was about the only topic close to this....Look up pool impact values to see what I am talking about.
