What makes BETMIX better than any other handicapping site?
BETMIX possesses the most advanced and easiest handicapping software with more options and analytic power than any other program currently available. With 40 sliders each representing ranking power for a specific handicapping factor, BETMIX gives you the power to choose not only what is important to you, but lets you determine HOW IMPORTANT it is in your decision. Once you create a MIX you can save and name that MIX, and apply it to any race with similar conditions (Subscribers only) and test that MIX against previously run races to see how accurate your MIX is.
What do the various factors mean?
Click on each factor's name and you will see a brief description of what it is. For a more detailed explanation please visit the Handicapping Factors page.
How much weight should I assign to each factor?
That is entirely up to you. Each user will have their own idea about how important a particular factor is in a race. It is important to remember that certain factors will have a bigger impact depending on what type of race you are handicapping. Obviously, Turf Pedigree would not be turned on for a dirt race, and the Lifetime earnings factors would not mater much in a maiden race.

What do the Green and Red arrows mean?
There are two columns in the results S and F and you may see a green or red arrow within that column.
The arrows were put in place to give you an idea of the horse's form.
A Green Up Arrow under the S column means the last three races have shown consecutive improvements in speed numbers. Example: (100, 92, 90) for last three races with the 100 being the most recent race.
A Red Down Arrow under the S column means the last three races have shown consecutive declines in speed numbers. Example: (90,92,98) for last three races with the 90 being the most recent race.
A Green Up Arrow under the F column means the last three races have shown consecutive improvements in finish position. Example: (3rd, 5th, 7th) for last three races with 3rd being the most recent race.
A Red Down Arrow under the F column means the last three races have shown consecutive declines in finish position.. Example: (5th, 3rd, 2nd) for last three races with the 5th being the most recent race.
