BLOCKBUSTER thoroughbred horse racing method



BLOCKBUSTER was developed by us in 2010 based on a set of 16 strictly applied primary rules and two supplementary rules that are used to separate the value bets when there is more than one final contender in any race.

This method operates on any meeting in any State of Australia and seven days a week. (For those that like a lot of action!)

Test period: September 1 2010 to December 7 2010

Results: 639 qualifying races: 146 winners (22.84%) at an average price of $5.23 and 343 place getters [ 53.67%] at an average dividend of $2.03 (inc. 0.00 return bets <7 runners).

We used a starting bank of $2000 equally split in to two banks of $1000 - one for win betting and one for place betting. (Of course you can use any size bank you feel comfortable betting with and this is MOST important ----- never EVER risk more than you comfortable with!)

After 98 days, betting a level 5% of our starting bank and NEVER increasing it, our win bank stood at $7250 and our place bank stood at $3943.

This represents a profit on turnover of 19.56% on the win side of the ledger and about 9.21% on the place side of the equation.

This also means our total starting bank of $2000 stood at $11193 at December 7.

If you had started with a total bank of just $200 and used $5 each way bets your bank would have been $1119.30

Our return on investment for both win and place betting (equal amounts): 14.38%

And this is all level stakes betting on a set and forget basis. We out our bets on after the morning scratchings and that's it - no sitting in front of a computer all day if that's how you choose to do it! If you did have the discipline and time to bet on Betfair, for example, your returns would undoubtedly have been higher - that's the trade off.

Our level stake of $50, which we have maintained since day 1, now represents just 0.69% of our win bank and 1.26% of our place bank.

We see no need to increase this level - we are more comfortable not increasing it!   It's impossible to imagine the run of outs we would need to "blow the lot" from this point onwards, but, I guess, anything is possible.


Do you win every day? Of course not. No system does. What we look for in any method is the long term capacity of a potentially upwardly trending "bank".

What if I wanted to bet 10% of my starting bank?
We wouldn't. Remember there has been a losing sequence of 21 in win betting. What if you happened to start at the beginning of that sequence? You wouldn't feel too flash, would you?

What if I bet 5 times as much for the place as the win? That approach is often touted. It seems a sensible idea but puts the bank at greater risk in a "horror stretch" situation. And yes - that may well happen. But yes - it would be more exciting. Remember the equation: E = R = L. Excitement equals risk equals losing. And what if a long losing place betting sequence coincided with a long losing win betting sequence? Oops! In our longest losing win bet sequence, there were only 7 place getters paying a total of 22.90. You do the maths at 1 to 5 ratio........ 136 units out for a return of 114.5...... had the place divvies been skinnier the poor result would have been greater amplified. In fact you'd have to go to a ten times the place ratio to break square during this losing process. It goes without saying, your investment ratio is becoming quite large.

We have done the exercise for you. AS AT 21.11.10 if you had bet 1% x 10% of your ($2000 split in to two banks of $1000) starting bank on all selections the profit would have been less than the above detailed flat stake approach. It would in fact have been $7992 which would equate to a 13.4% return on a total investment of 59620 turnover. But is it a safer way to go? Probably. I can't really decide.

Is this a foolproof methodology? Of course not. Nothing in gambling is foolproof. If there was no risk, there'd be no possible gain. Let me say that again in capital letters: IF THERE WAS NO RISK THERE'D BE NO POSSIBLE GAIN. Anyone that tells you differently is telling you lies.

Would I make more betting on Betfair? Undoubtedly, but you would need to be online every day to do it and get set on EVERY bet as distinct from the TAB where you know in advance you are "on" and there is no added risk of missing out on getting set or, in fact, simply missing a race - that's the trade off!

Remember, selections for the entire day are known at scratchings time and all investments can be placed on a "set and forget" basis if you are using a TAB!

There can only be one selection per race and it is very unambiguous in its methodology.

How long does it take to do the selections? Once you get in to the swing of things, selections should take 5 to 10 minutes to do a meeting. It helps a lot if you are using downloaded computer form and an html editor!   Huh????  More details on this? Click here
