Horse Racing Software – The Do's And Don'ts Of Online Horse Race Betting
Betting Psychology 101
First of all, get it out of your head that betting is a game of chance. This isn't ordinary gambling – horse race betting takes skill and practice to master! And if you leave it up to chance – as many novice horse race punters make the mistake of doing – you'll lose money 99% of the time!
So DO bet smartly. There's a science to these things, and it's important to spend as much time as you can studying this science. There are many good pieces of horse racing software on the Internet that are free to use – feel free to test a few of these on paper (no money yet!) for at least 3-6 months. This will help you get a feel for horse race betting.
About Your Betting Money
After 3-6 months of paper-testing your horse racing system(s), you'll have enough skill to start betting with money. But here's a very important tip: Only bet money you can afford to lose! It's never a good idea to bet using borrowed money – the risk of ending up in an even bigger financial hole is too great.
But if you have money to spare – such as money you were going to spend on your weekend entertainment ANYWAY – then go ahead. DO bet that money, and watch it grow as the months and years go by.
And speaking of the months and years...
Short-Term vs. Long-Term Betting
Using horse racing software to bet on horse races is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. It's NOT! To be REALLY successful in horse race betting, you have to take a long-term approach.
The best horse racing systems out there actually encourage a long-term approach for their users. Even the good ones have losing runs every now and then, and to be a short-term punter is almost a sure way to lose money. But if you stick to the long-term, you can enjoy at least a 20% profit as the years go by. That's even better than the stock market!
So to recap: (1) Bet smart, and paper-test your system(s) before betting money, (2) Bet only the money you can afford to lose, and (3) Have a long-term approach. Find good horse racing software that let you follow all these three tips, and you're well on your way to making good money on weekend horse races!
