What in the World is Thoroughbred Handicapping?

 

Handicapping is a thoroughbred racing term defined as “the art of predicting horses who have the greatest chance of winning a race, and profiting from these predictions at the horse races.”

This week is not only the LAST weekend to catch Live Racing at Ellis Park for the season, but it’s also your chance to learn about the art of betting on the ponies.  Noted handicapper, Gary West, will be in town to share his handicapping wisdom and he’ll also handicap the September 4th card.  So your odds…they’re increasing.

This weekend’s schedule is a bit different from past weekends, so we’ve outlined the schedule for you below.
