"The 32 Key Factors
For Longshot Exotics"

This Method Finds You The Horses Who Can Finish In The Money At High Odds And Make The Exotics Pay Very Well. It Will Enable You To Cash Larger Tickets More Frequently.

We have completed a long study on the characteristics of horses at high odds (aka longshots) that finish in the money and make the exotics pay well.

We all know that some exactas, trifectas and superfectas pay very well. A lot of the time the reason why these exotic bets have such a generous return is because horses with high odds finish 2nd, 3rd, etc.

Those with high odds who finish 2nd, 3rd or 4th are actually the key to every generous payoff in exotic wagers . Let's call them "Exotic Key Horses".

Detailed explanations of how to find "key horses" that are an essential part of generous paying exactas, trifectas and superfectas are listed right here:

With the advent of fifty cent ($0.50) trifectas and dime ($0.10) superfectas more and more players are diving into the exotics pool and finding the water 'just right'.

Even the $1 minimum wagers can be affordable and sensible to play if a certain strategy and method is followed and we focus for exotics that pay well.

This method must have a certain proven successful structure that takes into account patterns, characteristics and trends of horses finishing 2nd, 3rd or 4th at high odds.

In our study we discovered that, of those horses who finish 2nd, 3rd or 4th, at high odds, there is a certain pattern of characteristics that are favorable. In knowing what pattern to look for, we then know what horses to use in our exactas, trifectas and superfectas in the 'underneath' positions .

A long (several years) and extensive (over 54,000 races) study is finally complete. The result is a compilation of the most successful "characteristics" of "Exotic Key Horses" that fill out those high paying exotic wagers.

We have discovered 32 key elements or factors that are the "cream of the crop" characteristics of horses finishing in the money at high odds.

We use a Value Weighted Index (VWI) that grades each of the "32 Key Factors" and assigns each factor a certain number of points. Then each factor is placed into one of three groups. These groups are simply named A1, A2 or A3 with A1 being the highest rated group, A2 second highest, etc.

A (VWI) is an index in which greater weight is given to the factors that are involved in the higher paying exactas, trifectas and superfectas.

Actually those with "A1" Characteristics also showed a very good pattern for winning races as well as finishing in the money.
