Handicapping is not hard to learn once you are motivated to do so. An accompanying mentor usually winds up force-feeding the newbie with information until the light goes on. Without such unsolicited education to spark the interest, it is a rare person that catches the handicapping bug.

... Where racing is missing the boat IMO is not conducting WAGERING classes. If more casual players understood the strategies of ticket construction, and what it takes to properly cover an exotic wager, they would be more likely to bet more per capita.

... Someday, somebody in racetrack or ADW management is going to film a team of players attacking a Pick Six and verbalizing 1) their handicapping (isolating and ranking of contenders) , 2) constructing primary, secondary, and saver tickets, 3) placing the bet on-line or at an automated teller, and 4) cashing and signing for the resulting winning tickets.

In an ideal world, a compatible subset of Messrs. Fotias. Pricci, Platt, Meyers, Meadow, Kling, Crist, Beyer, and/or Davidowitz would create such a training video. I wonder how many iterations would be required to capture all four stages in succession.

Perhaps the first-mentioned five would film taking a shot at the Pick Five during HANA’s day at Monmouth. What a great fundraiser such a DVD would make!
