You can’t make it up and it happens all the time. They could hire a hamburger flipper from McDonalds who could come up with the right solution but guys like Brackpool making hundreds of thousands of dollars can’t figure it out. Amazing!
I read somewhere there was a company out there helping tracks coordinate their post times to get maximum results. Sorry I don't remember where I saw it.

The air traffic coners that Reagan fired in the early 80's might still be available.
WTF are you talking about ? This is about the tenth post where you criticize someone. How in the world by me saying I read an article on something makes me a lazy handicapper? Take your arrogant opinion and keep it to yourself.
Many punters that I know - some who actually make a profit, wait for the last minute before they wager even if they did their handicapping seven months ago. It's very hard to do this with two or more tracks going off at the same time.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

So how does one go about identifying a bet with an edge? I look at the W-P-S pools, the exacta pools, the will pays and then compare those to my handicapping. I wish I could do all the comparisons the night before but that all happens in the last 5 minutes before the race. So you think handicappers are lazy if they can't watch horses on 2 different tracks warm up, and then go to the betting data to try and find an edge in the last 5 minutes? I am sure that if you are betting on numbers, horse's names or jockey's silks it shouldn't be a problem.

How did I get involved in this?
Since I am, why would - say 150,000 - bettors need to develope a procedure for betting two major tracks at once, with the ability to change the bet up to the start, while watching how the horses warmed-up, etc., when could pick up the phone to his two managers and change the start times in 5 minutes?
I guess I was a systems analyst for too long.
Thank God for the Federal Reserve. You can't have big government or big wars without them.
