Welcome! If you are not finding winners consistently at the race track, give our professional handicapping a try! Trackpro puts horses in the daily reports that sometimes even experienced handicappers overlook that payoff at double digit odds. Why? Because of the unique and proprietary handicapping tools listed below. The consistency of the Trackpro handicapping is what customers depend on, and Trackpro is proud of the fact that the powerful software algorithm, developed over a period of years, will list the winner in the majority of races handicapped at almost every race track in the country! The Trackpro Value Rating (TPV) algorithm performs detailed comprehensive handicapping using the past performances for every horse in every race handicapped. The TPV will never "throw out" any contender in any race for any reason. And this fact alone is responsible for the consistent winning selections the software incorporates into the daily reports. The TPV algorithm is extremely powerful, and there is nothing quite like it on the market. Sample reports are available for review by clicking on the menu item above. Trackpro encourages racing fans to see for themselves just how effective the TPV handicapping is. Compare the selections to any competing website, and you most likely are going to be pleasantly surprised! And if you ever have any questions about the handicapping, just send me an email or call. You can send me an email by using the link at the bottom of this page. Trackpro loves to hear from horse racing fans so do not hesitate to get in touch.


On most racing days, the TPV algorithm will mark one or more top selections with the SV symbol which become the Super Value Win Bets. These special selections are the reason many customers purchase the handicapped horse racing selections day in and day out. What makes the Super Value selections unique is the fact that these horses are normally flying under the radar as far as the public betting is concerned. They may have a slow speed rating, an out of the money finish, or coming back to the races off a layoff. These handicapping factors will generally boost the price of the horse which is where the "wagering value" comes from. Sometimes the Super Value selection will be showing very sharp form, but may be moving up in class off a big win. In any event, these horses generally make excellent selective win bets, and they are exclusive to Trackpro.com! The selections will generally have earned the highest TPV rating on the card with a morning line over 2-1.


Trackpro has developed a unique set of proprietary handicapping tools that are identified by using symbols in the daily reports to assist racing fans in finding the winner. The handicapping tools consist of identifying horses in the handicapped reports that have:


Trackpro has developed a proprietary and unique algorithm that clearly identifies horses that have Notable Class ($) in the race. These horses are marked with the "$" symbol appended to the horse name in the report. Because the handicapping class criteria is very strict as to which horses can qualify for this designation, very few horses will be marked on a typical race card, but those horses that do receive the "$" symbol should be given close attention, and sometimes they will win at double digit payoffs. But most of the time the payoffs will be between 6/5 and 3-1 because of course the public sees the class advantage too!


Trackpro has developed an extremely accurate algorithm that clearly identifies horses that have Notable Pedigree (=) in the race. These horses are marked with the "=" symbol also appended to the horse name in the report. The pedigree ratings are helpful not only in maiden races where the horses may be first time starters, but also for horses switching from dirt to the turf, or the reverse. Pedigree is also important to note when a horse is stretching out in distance. When horses are marked with the Notable Pedigree (=) symbol, you can be sure these contenders are well bred thoroughbreds. It is good practice to also take a look at the sire, the dam, the stud fee, and the auction price of the horse in the past performances when it is marked with the Notable Pedigree (=) symbol.


This handicapping tool is very powerful for one simple reason, trainers that are successful are often found in the winners circle! For example, if a trainer is moving a horse from the dirt to the turf, and the trainer has a win percentage of 18.00% or higher making such moves in the past, then this piece of handicapping information is important to note. The TPV algorithm automatically looks for important trainer statistics in the past performances, and marks the trainer with the (*) symbol so that subscribers can easily flag these horses for further evaluation in their handicapping.


The Trackpro reports also contain a (%) designation for trainer and jockey combinations that typically generate a positive Return on Investment (ROI) of $2.00 or more for each two dollars wagered. The High T/J ROI (%) designation will appear next to the jockey name with the percent (%) symbol when the ROI is positive for horses listed in the report. When subscribers see this symbol, pay particular attention to the tote board odds. In general, when horses are handled by a profitable team which consists of the jockey and trainer, the win payoffs on these horses can sometimes be quite high! This symbol often appears in the reports when a low win percentage jockey hooks up with a high win percentage trainer, or the reverse.


When the same jockey returns to ride a horse listed in the selections, this fact is noted by the # symbol. In general, a jockey that is returning to ride will be familiar with the horse which is a positive handicapping factor. It is particularly important to note when a top jockey is returning to ride a horse, because top jockeys obviously are hot and winning often. The fact that they are returning to ride the same horse means they are confident they might have a good mount in the race. They do not always win obviously, but this handicapping tool is helpful for sure.


Trackpro spent considerable time researching pace and speed when he developed the TPV algorithm, and the hard work has paid off. When subscribers see a horse marked with High Speed (!!), this means the horse is capable of winning the race on speed alone versus the field the horse is facing. You will not see this symbol too often in the handicapped reports, because the speed criteria that a horse must meet is very strict, and not many thoroughbreds qualify in general on any one particular race card.


Trackpro has developed a powerful and effective algorithm that ranks every contender in the race according to how much pace the horse has. But make no mistake, the Trackpro Pace Ranking (TPR) is unique and different from any competing calculation in the industry. Trackpro developed this algorithm after much research and testing. Racing fans know the old saying that "pace makes the race", and sometimes racing fans can pick longshot winners using nothing more than the top ranked pace horse that has a morning line at 6-1 or higher. The TPR is listed to the left of the speed rating for each horse in the report so that subscribers can easily see how the horse is expected to run. A top ranked TPR at "1" means the horse has the potential to be the "controlling speed" in the race, if the horse also has the highest speed rating from the listed selections. Often these horses do in fact win wire to wire. A TPR at "6" for example means the horse likes to lay back way off the pace, and then close into the leaders in the stretch. Pace handicappers will find the TPR extremely useful when deciding on which horse to bet to win, or in the vertical and horizontal wagers. Horses marked with the Pace Play (^) symbol sometimes win at double digit prices. Why? Because these horses are in obvious good form, and have sharp speed to lead from the starting gate. But surprisingly, many times the betting public will overlook the Pace Play (^) contenders that are marked in the report, so subscribers can take advantage of this information when they are handicapping.


Horses that are marked with the Sharp Form symbol sometimes win at long odds because the form is not always obvious. A horse could be running with the pace in the early stages of the race, and then tire and fade to finish out of the money. Just because the horse lost does not mean the horse is not in sharp form. The horse could have been racing in a much higher class, the horse could have been placed at an unsuitable distance, or the horse might have needed a race after a long layoff. When you see the Sharp Form symbol, be sure to pay close attention to the tote board odds and check the past performances. In the past, some of these contenders have won at odds deep into the double digits! Not all of the time of course, but you do not need to catch many winners at big odds to sustain a profit over a period of time.


Most professional handicappers, and even casual racing fans know that races which consist mostly of first time starters are very difficult to handicap in general. So Trackpro put in the reports the Notable Gate Works (/) symbol to help subscribers find horses that the trainer has taken the time to work from the gate. Reviewing the workouts of first time starters often provides important clues on how the horse can be expected to run for the first time. Notable Gate Works are an excellent handicapping tool that can often point to a win at first asking. But of course you also need to evaluate the pedigree information provided in the past performances, along with the trainer / jockey statistics too.


The powerful Trackpro Value Rating (TPV) software examines the workouts of every horse in a race. The algorithm notes the speed of the workout, the distance, the description, the surface, and the rank of the workout, and it also calculates the days between workouts. It is very important to know the date when a horse last raced, and it is just as important to know the dates of each workout since that race. Many professional handicappers will demand at least four or more workouts if a horse has been off sixty days or longer. That is no doubt a reasonable requirement because horses need to train regularly in order to maintain sharp condition and form do they not? When the TPV looks at workouts, it pays particular attention to horses that have had a workout very close to a race! This is a significant trainer move that often precedes a win, and many times at double digit prices. Any horse that shows a workout close to a race is marked with the Recent Workout (+) symbol.


The weight carried by the jockey is not a handicapping factor noticed much by most racing fans and professional handicappers because most of the time all the jockeys ride with similar weight within a few pounds of each other. But sometimes, a race will have an apprentice jockey which has been granted a substantial weight allowance due to the jockey being relatively new to racing, and therefore not having much experience at riding. The weight allowance is usually anywhere from five to ten pounds, which is sort of compensation to even the playing field sort of speak. The Trackpro Value Rating (TPV) will mark any horse in the handicapped report that has a substantial weight allowance with the Notable Weight (W) symbol. Be sure to pay close attention to these horses that are receiving significant "weight off" due to the jockey. This is especially important in route races at eight furlongs or more. But even in sprint races, it pays to note the weight of a horse especially if the odds are over 10-1 on the tote board. Quite often, trainers will take a chance with their horse in a race with an apprentice to try and gain an advantage against the field. Trackpro has seen horses ridden by apprentice jockeys pay well into the double digits, so it pays to note horses carrying substantially less weight in any race.


Equipment changes such as the addition of blinkers is a significant handicapping factor to note. The primary reason trainers add blinkers to a horse is to keep the horse focused looking directly ahead and therefore hopefully racing straight. Blinkers limit the peripheral vision of a horse to assist the horse in avoiding distractions from other horses, and from shadows that may cause it to lose focus on the job at hand. Young horses are particularly prone to getting distracted while on the race course due to the noise and sometimes large crowds, so blinkers also can be viewed as safety equipment too. But from a handicapping perspective, when a trainer adds blinkers for the first time to a horse, he is hoping for an improved performance. Then there are times when a trainer has removed blinkers from a horse, and if the horse did not run well, the trainer willl put the blinkers back on. Subscribers will see the Blinkers On (B) symbol when this important equipment change is implemented by the trainer. It is small details like this that the algorithm takes into consideration that offer value to subscribers looking to find winners consistently.


Horses that are lightly raced and getting Lasix for the first time are noted in the reports with the First Lasix (L) symbol. This is a common medication administered to horses generally where permited, so Trackpro decided to only mark horses that are lightly raced due to the improvement expected on the race track.


Horses that have raced recently are generally in good physical condition, so this factor is marked in the reports with the Recent Race (R) symbol. In addition, may times a shrewd trainer will bring the horse right back to the races within a week or two to take advantage of the form of the horse. It is obvious that horses returning to the race track relatively soon after a race are usually well meant, and this is definitely a positive sign and important handicapping factor to note.


Trackpro developed the Overlay (O) symbol in the reports to alert subscribers to horses that are most likely going to be overlooked in the wagering due to their high morning line. The basic premise behind this symbol is that sometimes the track handicapper that sets the morning line makes a mistake. After all, it is tricky and sometimes problematic to come up with a fair morning line in the first place. In the majority of races, the track handicapper does a remarkable job assigning an accurate morning line to each horse. But sometimes, and on a few rare occasions, the morning line odds are set way too high. The TPV algorithm is extremely powerful and very efficient at spotting horses that can win at huge odds! It does not happen that often, but sometimes the track racing analyst will under estimate the true chances and ability of a race horse, and this set of circumstances is exactly what the algorithm tries to identify when it is parsing the past performances. Many times, longshots are not longshots at all, they are just horses that are being overlooked by the public simply because of the high morning line. This fact is particularly true in races with first time starters, or lightly raced horses in general. Often, horses that are rising substantially in class will be assigned a high morning line also. So this is another instance where subscribers should pay close attention to the past performances, and watch the tote board closely to see if the risk justifies the odds being offered on the horse. Whenever subscribers see the Overlay (O) symbol, be aware that this horse could light up the tote board at a huge price, and you can expect the crowd to be very quiet after the race if the horse wins! Read more about specifc types of overlays below.


The Well Placed Contender (<<) symbol is Trackpro's personal favorite handicapping tool! Why? Because this tool ensures horses are placed by the trainer at a favorable class level, and at a distance where the horse has won or can win. It is not perfect, but the TPV does an outstanding job of spotting horses that figure strongly to win versus the competition it is facing. All of the handicapping tools are important, and when a horse is marked by the software with two or more symbols, pay close attention to both the horse in your handicapping, and to the tote board odds to see if the horse might be an overlay. An overlay is hard to define exactly. But Trackpro considers any horse with odds on the tote board over the morning line, or above the so called "fair odds" line is probably an overlay if the horse figures well to win. All of the horses listed in the Trackpro reports will figure to win from a handicapping perspective. Some more than others, so also pay attention to the TPV rating itself. If the horse has a TPV rating much higher than the horse beneath it in the report, this horse can be expected to hold a significant advantage. In general, the higher the TPV, the better the horse figures to win. But the most important factor to keep in mind when using the Trackpro reports is that "ANY" horse listed in the report, no matter what position the horse is listed in, is capable of winning the race. Often horses listed in the fourth position will win, so subscribers need to evaluate each of the contenders properly, especially with respect to the handicapping tools provided, and the odds being offered on the tote board! Trackpro has done his very best to ensure the software selects quality contenders in each and every race, but handicapping is only half the puzzle. The other half of the puzzle sort of speak is finding "wagering value", and taking advantage of overlays when they arise on the tote board. Trackpro has seen horses with a 12-1 morning line listed in the report float up to 32-1 at post time, and this is the type of wagering opportunity I am talking about! The unique and powerful Trackpro reports provide for two important wagering concepts which I refer to as a "Double Overlay" and a "Triple Overlay" which are defined below:


Finding wagering value obviously is of paramount importance when trying to generate a profit at the race track. So Trackpro wants to tell subscribers about the wagering concept called a "Double Overlay" which I personally developed. Here is the definition; Any horse listed third in the Trackpro report that has a morning line greater than the sum of the morning lines on the top two selections combined qualifies as a double overlay. A "Triple Overlay" is defined as follows; Any horse listed fourth in the Trackpro report that has a morning line greater than the sum of the morning lines on the top three selections combined qualifies as a triple overlay. Subscribers should pay close attention to the morning line on the listed selections, and note any horse that qualifies for either of these two designations. Very often you will be looking at a horse that could win at extremely good odds, but be sure to keep a close eye on the tote board to see if the public is ignoring the horse in the wagering.


The Trackpro reports offer plenty of wagering value on most days. Especially when the TPV software selects a horse for the report that has a morning line of 10-1 or higher. These contenders should be considered for an "across the board" wager, and maybe also for use in the vertical wagers such as an exacta, triple, or superfecta. The basic premise here is that if a horse has made the report cutoff by having earned enough positive handicapping factors in the past performances, then it is possible the morning line at 10-1 or more is too high, and probably above the actual chance the horse has to win the race, or at least finish in the money.


If you are looking for consistent winning professional selections, you found the perfect website right here at Trackpro.com. The winner of the race will be listed by the proprietary TPV software algorithm in the majority of races handicapped on most days. Why? Because horses that figure to win, do win most of the time. Handicapping is not complicated, but it does require paying attention to details, and a comprehensive review of the past performances for each horse. That's exactly what the proprietary Trackpro Value Rating (TPV) software does. It evaluates the past performances for each contender in every race, and it does not "throw out" horses due to poor recent form, a low win percentage jockey or trainer, or even a morning line at 20-1 or higher. The TPV looks at each horse in an unbiased manner, and it looks at the past performances in their entirety, and that is why the software is so consistent in listing winners race after race!
