    Handicappers, Fans and the Jockey Relationship

    handicappers1Jockeys, by definition, are the people who ride horses professionally in races. While that definition is simplistic and fits the job description, it does a lousy job of encompassing everything these athletes do.

    Yes, I said athletes because these are the pilots of animals weighing an average of 1200 lbs. and that are running in excess of 35 mph around the racetrack. It would be hard enough to control and maneuver a thoroughbred by itself around one or two turns, but add eight to 12 others, all running at the same time for the identical finish line, and you can get a bit of chaos.

    Oh, did I fail to mention that most of these men and women weigh less than 118lbs? The job that jockeys do is a tough one and one that requires hundreds of hours in the saddle to prepare for a career in racing. To add another pound to the discussion, many jockeys struggle to make weight and go to extreme circumstances to be ready for post time. Constant exercising and dieting are tools of the trade for these riders. Some are able to manage these behaviors, but others struggle and, in extreme cases, fall by the wayside and not only fail in their career, but also life.

    The Power of Dutching

    You have $20 to spend at the grocery store to buy three things to make a sandwich: bread, cheese, and meat. Would you take that $20 and divide it by three and spend $6.66 on each item, when the bread cost $1.99, cheese $3.49, and meat $6.99? The simple answer is no. Unfortunately, that is what you are doing when you are boxing your wagers.

    When you box your selections, regardless of what the current odds are, you are essentially spending the same of amount on each selection even though they are at different odds. In other words, you are lowering your return on investment (ROI).

    AmWager has a great tool that enables you to maximize your ROI and take the inefficiencies out of the boxed wager – it’s called Dutching.
