Looking for an easy-to-use, versatile handicapping program? MultiCAPS is the answer! What is great about MultiCAPS for Windows is that it saves the horseplayer time and makes handicapping quick and easy. A click of the mouse brings up 8 different windows with precisely calculated ratings for over 25 valuable handicapping factors. Another click brings up workout reports, breeding information, full paceline reports, and jockey/trainer statistics. A wealth of information is at your fingertips!

"I just wanted to thank you all at Brisnet and the programmer of MultiCAPS. Today (Sunday, July 14 at Hollywood Park) I scored a huge payout, hitting the trifecta and the late double for just under five grand...for simplicity and effectiveness I don't feel you can beat the MultiCAPS program." -- K. Arias

The MultiCAPS data files are easy to download and simple to import. The program was written for both novice and experienced handicappers, making it sophisticated and effective yet easy-to-use at the same time.

MultiCAPS Visual Handicapping

Graphed comparisons of Pace, Ability, Projected Time, Feet Per Second Calculations and Total Pace Ratings allow the handicapper to easily compare the components that make up these factors. MultiCAPS ranks the horses by the factors chosen. Consider it "visual handicapping," a unique characteristic of this popular software package.

Programmed settings generate a "Horses to Watch" list, offering value plays that can increase your ROI. MultiCAPS combines the BRIS Prime Power Rating, Race Ratings and Average Class Ratings with pace-based handicapping factors to identify the top contenders in each race.

Both overlays and underlays are easily identified with the Fair Odds line automatically generated by MultiCAPS. This powerful feature 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 value betting situations.

Did we mention it's easy to use? Each MultiCAPS handicapping window offers the ability to remove a horse from consideration with a simple click of the mouse. Compare factors, compare ratings, judge if a horse can run to par, and if one determines the horse has no chance to hit the board, click on the pretender (which will remove the horse), and the contenders loom boldly on the screen. It's as simple as it sounds.

Optimize MultiCAPS with Your Own Database

Now, you can build a MultiCAPS Database with approximately 225 races, absolutely free! Just download your 3 free current MultiCAPS regular data files and your 20 free MultiCAPS archived data files and XRD results files from the BRIS Archive File Server in December*.

By downloading the corresponding Exotic Result files from Brisnet.com, you can then compute models that will identify which handicapping factors proved to be successful for that race. Model results are displayed on the screen for the race being handicapped, so one can see which factors to rely on. In a short time you'll have a database created for the tracks that you regularly handicap.

Don't forget that MultiCAPS data files can also be used to print BRIS Past Performances at no additional cost through Custom PP Generator software. So, what are you waiting for? Download MultiCAPS software today!

* 20 Free Archive files and the corresponding XRD archive result files are available only from the Brisnet.com Archive server located at www.brisnet.com/archive.

Know Your Bottom Line

by Rich Nilsen

If someone were to ask you what your return on investment (ROI) was from wagers in 2003, could you give them an accurate answer? How about your win percentage? Could you tell them what percentage of your Pick-3 wagers you hit? As horseplayers looking to make a profit, we need to know the answers to these critical questions and much more.

Record keeping is a vital component in understanding your wagering tendencies. By logging your wagers daily in a ledger or spreadsheet on your PC, you will have at your fingertips a history of your activity.

There are advantages to recording your wagering activity daily. Your account history will help you uncover the weaknesses in your wagering. You may love to play the Superfecta, but this enticing wager may be draining the profits earned from other wagers.

If you are betting on multiple tracks during the year, your record keeping will provide you with the details on each track. More likely than not, you will find that you have a better handle on certain tracks. Record keeping also encourages you to make spot plays, arguably the best way to turn a profit.

Documenting your wagering can be a tremendous tax aid. It will serve as the basis for writing off any losses if you have any “big scores” to report to Uncle Sam.

Reasons why few players take the necessary time to log their wagers is the amount of time it takes and the discipline required. For those who wager online or by phone, there is a solution.

TwinSpires.com offers “Detailed Account History Report” under "Manage Your Account." With a click of the mouse, one can quickly see not only all the wagers made since a certain date, but also a wagering result summary.

One can go back and look at their entire account history since the account was opened. The report includes not only the amount wagered and number of bets placed but also win % and R.O.I.! Queries can be done based on the racetrack(s), date, type of wager, and any combination of those three.

A recent enhancement includes the ability to track wagers by dollar amount. For example, maybe a $2 win wager is an 'action' bet for you. You can now analyze just those wagers to see how they are affecting your bottom line.

Use TwinSpires.com this coming year and make manual record keeping a thing of the past. Good luck!
