3 FREE ALL-Ways Data Files & ALL-Ways Version 13.1 Released

Good Timing

Now is a particularly good time to give ALL-Ways software a try. Here's why. Beginning in January 2007, Frandsen Publishing will launch a one-year special effort which can best be characterized with the phrase "From novice to expert at a reasonable pace. "This special effort will be comprised of three elements: 1) New ALL-Ways software will be released with a four-level architecture ranging from Level 1 for new users and gradually moving up to more sophisticated features in Level 4 for experienced users; 2) The four quarterly ALL-Ways Newsletters in 2007 will be devoted primarily to helping new users get the most out of each individual level and will advance through all four levels as the year progresses; 3) New instructional aids will also become available in various forms.

So, if you would like to give ALL-Ways a try, we suggest taking advantage of 3 free data files in September, a $21 - 42 value! It's compliments of and Frandsen Publishing.

This will give you some time to explore ALL-Ways, well in advance of the upcoming Breeders' Cup, and to build a small ALL-Ways database of race cards. This will put you in great shape to join in the 2007 effort to move from an ALL-Ways novice to an ALL-Ways expert over the course of the year.

Toolbox Handicapping

In pari-mutuel wagering, you are not playing against the house (like playing slot machines in a casino). Instead, you are competing against all the other handicappers who are playing the same races.  This is a very important distinction because it means, if you do a better job of handicapping than the other players, you can make a profit at their expense. You are not playing for the track's money. You are playing for the money wagered by other handicappers.

ALL-Ways was designed with all this in mind. Specifically, ALL-Ways was designed as a toolbox full of effective handicapping and wagering tools. ALL-Ways users are thus able to select the ALL-Ways tools that best fit their interests and style of play and integrate the selected tools into their personal handicapping process. Users doing the best job of selecting and integrating the tools achieve the best results.

ALL-Ways Fundamentals

ALL-Ways uses a comprehensive set of very powerful handicapping factors covering each horse's suitability to the distance and surface, current form, class level, ability to handle the probable pace and speed demands of the race and advanced jockey, trainer and pedigree information. ALL-Ways creates handicapping profiles made up of the factors that work best in combination with each other and does so in a track specific and race type specific way. ALL-Ways uses the handicapping profile that is appropriate for the race being handicapped and generates a win probability for each horse and a corresponding odds-line for the race. ALL-Ways then goes further to point out the primary contenders in the race, identifies any horse it considers to be a "Dangerous Non Contender," isolates the best early running and the best late running horses, presents excellent Key-Horse candidates and points out horses that meet the criteria for numerous handicapping angles such as horses having made a "double move" (V Pattern) in their last race.

ALL-Ways Version 13.1 Released

More than one hundred enhancements have been introduced in this latest version of ALL-Ways. Many are in the form of important new information on ALL-Ways handicapping reports, which are available in printed format as well as for display on your computer screen. For a complete description of what is new in Version 13.1, please visit either the ALL-Ways Free Software page on the BRIS Web site or the What's New Page on the Frandsen Publishing Web site ( Here is some additional information about three of the major new features.

Form-by-the-Numbers Report

A critical and often difficult task facing handicappers is being able to accurately evaluate the real current form of a horse. This powerful new handicapping report provides very extensive form related data for every horse in the race including analyses of workouts and form cycles.

Multi-Track Analysis

The Multi-Track feature in Version 13.1 lets you automatically run Impact Value and Top 3 Analyses for multiple tracks. This is a great tool for finding effective "universal" handicapping factors. It is particularly powerful for analyzing all the tracks on a circuit, such as the circuits in New York, Florida, Kentucky, Southern California, etc.

Custom Card as a Track

A great way to develop your handicapping specialties is to use the special BRIS Custom Card capabilities for ALL-Ways data files. You can create race cards made up of just the kinds of races you like to play at just the tracks you like to play. For example, you can create race cards made up of just races that will have a lot of early pace pressure, possibly setting up for high priced, deep closers. Or, you could create a card with races that figure to have lone front runners loose on the lead.  ALL-Ways then gives you the option to treat these Custom Cards on a track-specific basis or as a single track.

Welcome Aboard!

We suggest new ALL-Ways handicappers visit the What's New Page on the Frandsen Publishing Web site and click the link to "Getting Started With ALL-Ways." Then print and read the short paper on "How ALL-Ways Works" and also note the options presented for a "Fast Track" approach, an "Accelerated Track" approach and an "As You Go" approach. 

This is the perfect time to upgrade your handicapping with the powerful ALL-Ways software package. Download 3 free files of your choice during the month of September.

Reminder: The ALL-Ways data file you download not only drives ALL-Ways software, it also can be used to generate the BRIS Ultimate Past Performances at no additional cost.

"Fantastic"said Ronald Cote of Middletown, DE after finishing first in the second annual $100,000 guaranteed AmericaTab Handicapping Open Championship.

Fantastic was how he described his winnings of $60,000 for first place in the world's richest online handicapping contest. Fantastic was also how he described the finals and the qualifiers leading up to finals on Saturday, August 5.

Cote, a member, finished with a Return on Investment (ROI) of $114.70. That was enough for him to best the field and finish above second place finisher Gordon Arenz of Bend, OR who completed the finals with an ROI of $101.50. Arenz was awarded a lucrative $17,000 prize for second place in the finals.

After his win, Cote said he relied on Ultimate Race Summaries from as a prime source of handicapping the races.

"Every time I play a contest, I get the Ultimate Race Summary from BRIS," explained Cote. "It helps break down the races for me. I use the Prime Power Rating, the Class Ratings, and the Late Pace figures."

Throughout the day he was changing his selections for a strategy based on his standings at the time. He picked up $26 for the runner Original Spin who finished second in the eighth race at Saratoga. There were 15 pre-selected races on the finals card and the longshot catapulted Cote to a comfortable position in the finals. It was not until Red Zipper finished first at Saratoga and paid a total of $21.20 for win and place that he felt he had a legitimate shot for the win. Red Zipper was in the 10th race at Saratoga and the 11th event on the card.

"The Race Summary put me on my final winner, Red Zipper, in the 10th race at Saratoga," continued Cote. "He was ranked in the top two in the field on the Current Class, Speed Last Race, and Back Speed categories. I couldn't have done it without the information."

Cote qualified the maximum number of two tickets for the finals and concentrated on the leading ticket in which he eventually won. He shifted to Red Zipper shortly before the race because he felt strongly about his chances. From there on out he concentrated on chalk horses and picked up $5.00 with Live Fast in the seventh race at Del Mar, the last event for the day.

"This tournament was so much fun, yet also nerve wracking," said Cote who said he will use a portion of his winnings to buy a new computer. "Having two entries was real helpful. Last year I made it into the Championship but only had one entry. This year my goal was to qualify twice and have a better chance in the finals. It paid off."

Over $103,000 was distributed with payouts down 30 places in the finals. A total of $257,550 was paid out through the 43 weeks of qualifiers and the one Saturday of the finals. The AmericaTab Handicapping Open returns 100 percent of the entry fee money to the players. The top five players from each week qualified for the finals.

The inaugural AmericaTab Handicapping Open Championship was contested last year with veteran horseplayer and longtime member Dennis Tiernan taking home the lucrative $60,000 grand prize.
