Becoming An Informed Horse Better

Dec 26, 2007
If you are a betting man, you probably are pretty discouraged about the chances of winning the battle with the horse. At every turn, the horse seems to be winning.

However, the cruelty of horse to man is really soothing compared with the tricks man plays upon man. For every player, sooner or later, comes upon the man who professes he has "inside information" for sale.

The player may read an advertisement, get a circular through the mails or, at a track, strike up what appears will be a lasting and beneficial friendship with a stranger. The advertisement, circular or stranger have the same story - their only aim in life is to help the player find the pot of gold at the end of the finish line.

This eternal quest for inside information is like a disease, such as the measles. Most every player is exposed to it at some time or another, and once he becomes afflicted, there is nothing to do but let the "disease" run its course. Advice or pleadings of friends are of no avail.

The information peddler operates on the same basic principles as any of his colleagues in other fields of illegal, sharp and unethical business or trade practices.

Every day, hundreds of Americans are swindled because they were convinced that there were "short cuts" and that some stranger was willing to show them. The average man falls prey to strangers who boast of their "connections," "influence" or "position" that permit them to do things that are not privileged for the average man.

The player is wise if he gives up all ideas that races "run" the night before in some hotel room or that some character in a New York office knows more than owner, trainer, jockey or horse. If he will accept racing to be an honest sport, he will not be badgered into playing inside information, hot tips or races in which "something funny" is to happen.

Despite warnings, exposures and appeals to reasoning, turf fans get mulcted of millions each year by men who profess to have the greatest secret since the atom was fashioned into a bomb. They profess to have the winner of a particular race. What's more, they are willing to share this priceless secret with all who will pay them a modest fee.

Lists of names of players are bought and sold just like lists of other names used for direct mail advertising. Many small magazines or booklets exist for no other purpose than to sell information. At the track, players can get personal service from men who casually make their acquaintance and just as casually convey the idea that they are bursting at the seams with good news.

The mail peddlers operate in different ways but basically their methods have one thing in common - they want a player to pay all the traffic will bear for a horse's name or agree to make a play for the peddler.

The player could save himself money and heartaches if he would make a very simple test or ask a few simple questions about every proposition to give him winners.

The question a player should ask himself is: why does this man go to so much time, expense and energy when, if he actually knew a winner, he could go to the track and bet $100 or $200. Within a few minutes, the race would be run, the tipster would have the money in his pocket and could go home.

Instead of bustling around an office stuffing envelopes and mailing them, calling people to get down bets for him and calling them back to remind them to pay up, he could make just as much money at the track for only a few minutes of effortless work. He must be a true philanthropist, indeed, to spend so much time and energy just to share his good things with his fellowman.

Since hope springs eternal in the player's breast, the same as in any other man, the quest for "inside information" will lure many turf fans to their financial doom despite anything that can be said or written. Do not fall into that trap!
