feature of the program is the 'Total Factors'

one number. Best of all, these factors can be chosen
by the user based on their own handicapping style.
Both overlays and
underlays are easily identified with the Fair Odds
line automatically generated by MultiCAPS. The
program generates an odds line based on the dominant
factors faring well at the track in question. By
comparing this odds line with the morning line, one
can shy away from the underlays and hammer high

perfect example of pace overlay pinpointed by the
MultiCAPS default settings.

When it comes to
turf races, maiden events or races with horses
stretching out in distance, knowledge of the
dams' produce records can be the difference
between nailing a boxcar payoff or ripping up losing
tickets. Most handicappers are familiar with sires
and their offspring's common traits, but with only
one foal per year, dams represent a different
challenge. This is where possessing information over
the majority of the wagering public represents a
American Produce Records (APRs) is the
encyclopedia of Thoroughbred mares dating back to
the middle 20th century. Included are over 50 years
of race records for all registered foals. It is the
only product of its kind and the ultimate source of
Want to know what a
particular horse is bred to accomplish? Simply type
the dam's name or the foal's name into your PC and
interpret the results.
Here's a synopsis
of the type of progeny information you'll uncover
for each and every dam:
records separated by Turf, Dirt Routes, Dirt
Winners indicated (*)
First time on
the Turf Winners indicated (*)
Best BRIS Speed
Ratings (since 1990) for each category per
Distance (AWD) for every winner.

winners per Route starters (included in the
Maiden Stats line for every 2yo and 3yo).
and profile; and Center of Distribution.
Let's look at the
example of a young, up-and-coming Kentucky Derby
prospect, Strong Contender.
We see that he is
the second foal of his dam, Kopenhagen, who
is by stamina influence Dynaformer. Her first foal
was a Salt Lake gelding named Snuff. He raced 16
times with three wins and earnings of $113,331. The
breakdown of his career record shows that Snuff won
three of 10 starts in dirt routes with eight
in-the-money finishes and a career best BRIS
Speed Rating of 93. All three of his career wins
came in routes, so clearly this half brother to
Strong Contender was much better going long. This is
even more impressive when you consider that Snuff is
by Salt Lake who has a low AWD (average winning
distance) from his offspring of 6.3 furlongs,
according to Sire Stats 2006. Snuff was also two for
two on wet tracks, which bodes well for Strong
Contender if he must face an off track.
Dosage lovers will
also note that Strong Contender has a low Dosage
Index of 1.33 and an even lower Center of
Distribution of 0.14. Both numbers indicate strong
sources of stamina in the bloodlines. [For a more

made his first start of the year at Gulfstream,
February 22 and had little trouble stretching out to
one mile. Inexperience may be a major obstacle en
route to the first Saturday in May, but distance
will not be an issue with this son of Maria's Mon.
I personally use
the APRs every day in my handicapping, so I can't
emphasize enough the edge this information provides.
For me it's very difficult handicapping most maiden
and turf races without applying the American Produce
Records. By adding the APRs into your handicapping,
you'll hold a significant edge over the wagering
public that fails to go the extra mile.

The Dime Superfecta
Bet the dime
superfecta through TwinSpires.com on Keeneland,
Oaklawn, Santa Anita/Hollywood Park, River
Downs/Thistledown, Sam Houston, Beulah, Hawthorne,
Turf Paradise and Lone Star Park.
There are many
advantages to the dime superfecta wager, as
it gives the player a better chance to hit a winning
ticket. It allows you to add in additional horses in
any of the four positions that would be beyond the
comfort level of the medium sized bettor. The
10-cents superfecta wager is especially potent for
the bettor that structures his or her wager with
"key" horses on top. In addition, the smaller total
cost of the bet is less likely to result in the
winning player being required to pay income tax at
the time the ticket is cashed. IRS regulations force
the requirement that witholding taxes be deducted
from winning wagers above a certain size. The
fractional nature of the 10 cent Superfecta means
that players are less likely to reach that threshold
How to Wager Online
On the wagering
menu at TwinSpires.com, under "Amount", select
"Other." On the pop-up screen, you can enter
amounts from 10 cents through 90 cents or whole
dollar amounts. Or, simply select the superfecta as
your wager and the wagering amount populates with
the proper dime increments. A 10-cent superfecta box
with four horses costs only $2.40. A five-horse box
costs a total of $12; a six-horse box costs $36.
