Announcement: The Handicapping Monthly Is Live

The Horseplayer Monthly is an e-magazine that's totally free to both HANA and non-HANA members that is almost 100% focused on handicapping.

This month's edition has an interview with CJ from TimeformUS about making figures, handicapping and his thoughts on the horses we bet each day. We also looked at "When's A Supertrainer Not So Super", Ray Paulick and Seth Merrow were in our "Ten Questions With" segment, statistics, betting math and much more.

We embarked on this project for three main reasons:

1. Handicapping horses is the greatest gambling game ever invented, and we want that shouted from the rooftops.  We feel that horseplayers, new and old, crave handicapping information. By publishing a monthly magazine focused on it, if some of that information helps even one person become a better player, or reaches one person who does not know about horse racing handicapping but wants to, (and he or she becomes a new fan and bettor), we think we've done our job.

2. We feel by publishing the e-magazine, HANA can reach more people who may want to become HANA members, help out, be engaged to promote racing, offer ideas to make it better, lobby their political leaders (if need be) on horseplayer taxation, or uniform rules, or anything else that can help the sport. There is strength in numbers.

3. HANA is a volunteer organization and does not collect dues. Over the past several years, HANA has relied solely on the goodwill of fellow horseplayers through donations or a voluntary contribution through the purchase of a HANA Member Pin. We feel a publication such as Horseplayer Monthly can bring in a nominal amount of advertising dollars. This revenue will be used to help grow the organization in an exciting new direction. Members may visit Horseplayersassociation,org for a copy of our yearly financials.

If you are a potential advertiser who is offering handicapping products to help horseplayers become better, an Advance Deposit Wagering company who is trying to help players win, or a player friendly track who wants to make horseplayers aware of what you're up to, please email us at info @ for rates.

We hope you enjoy the first issue of HANA's Handicapping Monthly. We thank everyone who worked on getting it done, our advertisers, bloggers who allowed us to publish them, and the fine people in the sport who responded to our interview requests.

What can you do to help? Please forward the monthly pdf to horseplayers, or potential horseplayers, tweet it out, or mention it on Facebook. We'd sincerely appreciate it.

Good luck and good racing.

Jeff Platt - HANA President
