Greyhound Handicapping - Focus On Winning

January 07, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 191

I'm married to someone who has ADD. Both of my kids have it too. They all have trouble paying attention and focusing on one thing at a time, because they're easily distracted by whatever is going on around them. I love them all, but I'm exactly the opposite. I'm a plodder, a focuser. My mind sticks with one thing at a time until it processes it and then I can think about the next thing.

What does this have to do with winning at the dog track? A lot. When I take my family to the track with me, they're all over the place. Literally and figuratively. They're off to the snack bar or back to the car for something they forgot. They're texting their friends, braiding their hair (in my daughter's case), writing a shopping list for tomorrow (in my spouse's case) or reading a newspaper they found on a table.

I'm the only one who's watching the schooling races before the program or going over my program to mark the scratches and remind myself of what I handicapped to bet before I came. Of course, my family will pick dogs because of how they look or because they like their names, so what's the point of them handicapping anyway?

But the point is that they notice everything, yet they notice nothing that will help them pick dogs. Me, I don't text my friends while I'm handicapping. I don't read the newspaper in between the races. I don't do anything else but pay attention to the dogs and the track condition and my bets.

Once in a while, they'll pick a dog by name or by looks and it'll come in and they'll be really happy that they "handicapped" a race better than I did, if my dog loses. I don't say anything, but what they do isn't handicapping. Focusing on the program, the dogs, the odds - that's handicapping. And that's enough to pay attention to if, like me, you don't have ADD.

I'm not saying that everyone should be a plodder or ignore what's going on around them at the dog track. I do think, though, that if you're easily distracted, you might want to try to focus more on the important things at the track. To me, this is the key to picking winners. Keep your mind on what you're doing, what the dogs are doing and what the odds board is doing as much as you can from the time you walk in, until you walk out, and you may walk out with more money than you walked in with.
