We've added some very informative new stats to Angler Analysis in BirdDog.
These new stats are all about letting you know how often horses, trainers, jockeys, etc. do what they are supposed to do. You need to know if the horse you are betting on has a history of doing what its supposed to do or not. When a horse does (or doesn't do) what is expected that can be good, bad or ugly.
If you bet a favorite to win or use it in your trifecta and it runs 5th that is a real ugly outcome.
However, if you bet against that favorite and it runs off the board that is a real good thing. The new stats described below will help you determine if your horse has a history of doing what you need it to do today. Sometimes you want them to win, other times you want them to lose... What's good for me can be bad for you - it all depends on the bets we made.
To make money consistently you need to make value bets - bet on horses that have a better chance to win than the public thinks. That means finding horses, trainers, owners, jockeys, etc. that overperform and not betting on those that are likely to underperform.
The Angler Analysis tool gives you a lot of information about the horses, trainers, jockeys, sires, etc. in a race.
