Handicapping the Breeders
Can it be financially productive for Quarter Horse handicappers to
analyze a horse’s breeder in their assessment of an animal’s chances to
win? After all, there are plenty of other variables to consider,
including a horse’s speed, form, class, jockey, owner, and trainer. Why
worry about yet another factor that, on the surface at least, hardly
seems that critical in determining which animal poses for a photo?
Handicapping’s complex enough, with more angles than Rubik’s cube.
However, imagine handicapping a Maiden Special contest (an allowance
race for non-winners) for unraced 2-year-olds. How can we separate the
pretenders from the contenders in these races? There are no past
performance lines because these babies have no race history. No speed
ratings to assess, no first-call positions, no comment lines, no class.
These sprinters are pure rookies, not professional racehorses.
When the gates open, will their mind be on business, or will they be too
green or rank to run well? Our selection may wilt under the competitive
pressure of his first race, like a minor-league pitcher facing the New
York Yankees for the first time. The horse may break like Carl Lewis. Or
Buddha. Unaccustomed to running in straight lines, he may veer in or out
during the race. Or get intimidated. These uncertainties actually create
wonderful opportunities for overlays or long shots in races for
When assessing these contests, you have five factors to consider: the
animal’s trainer, jockey, breeder, breeding, and workouts. Naturally,
most horseplayers use workouts as their key variable. The following
example shows an animal that ran 350 yards in 18.70 seconds on Aug. 11
at Los Al.
WORKS: Aug 11 LA 350 ft :18.70h
The horse with the fastest workouts often becomes the favorite; bettors
assume that if this animal duplicates his workout time in the actual
race, he’ll rake in all the chips. (And often this horse doesn’t
disappoint his backers.) Once again, the betting public largely consists
of speed handicappers who handicap the horse rather than the horsemen.
WORKOUTS VS. ACTUAL RACES
However, workouts alone don’t always identify the best horse. They are,
after all, only dress rehearsals for the main event, and they don’t come
close to simulating actual race conditions. In these practice sessions
the horse either works alone or with one or two other competitors.
Nothing’s really on the line, so the animal may not take them seriously.
Or run as fast as he can.
Truth is, the real race poses many new challenges for the untested
rookie. The horse may have to race at night rather than in broad
daylight. With strange shadows crisscrossing the track. With horses
throwing fits in the starting gate. Fans yelling. Jockeys whistling and
urging. And eight or nine other fierce competitors breathing fire,
trying to blow him away. In these pressure-packed circumstances, the
youngster may flunk his first real racing test. No matter how sharp he
looked in workouts.
It is possible to make a healthy profit in these maiden races, since the
betting public often overlooks the sleeper: an animal with relatively
slower workouts, a stellar pedigree, and a top Quarter Horse breeder
(that is, one with considerable experience in the industry and a
relatively high win percentage). When this horse suddenly fires at 25-1
(yes, lightning strikes; not necessarily in the animal’s first race, but
perhaps after a few losses, when the public’s lost faith in him),
bettors wail like banshees once again, blaming their losses on some
shadowy track conspiracy that always victimizes them. Wah, wah, wah.
What really happened? The long shot finally answered the bell and came
out fighting. Its superior breeding--and breeder--materialized. About
WHY IS THE BREEDER IMPORTANT?
The breeder’s another forgotten horseman whose work is rarely
appreciated by the betting public. When analyzing a race, the vast
majority of bettors focus almost exclusively on a horse’s racing
performances rather than the animal’s “creator.” It’s almost unheard of
to hear horseplayers say that they bet a certain horse because the
animal’s breeder is a high-percentage horseman with tons of experience
in the industry.
The animal “begins” with the breeder, of course, who brought mommy and
daddy together. Not as a genetic experiment. Not for fun. Not to produce
a ranch horse. Mommy and daddy were brought together to produce a
racehorse—an animal capable of tearing up the track and winning stakes
races with big purses. Breeding racehorses is what these horsemen do for
a living, so their business depends on producing and selling
high-quality animals—not future $2,500 claimers. With in-depth knowledge
of Quarter Horse racing’s most productive sires and dams, the most
successful breeders know which “crosses” are likely to work and which
ones may not pan out.
Because the breeder is responsible for the genetic makeup of their
“offspring,” in a sense this horseman is the racehorse’s true “parent.”
There’s obviously a special connection between the animal and its
breeder, who may closely monitor the progress of the horse on the track.
Many breeders raise and nurture their stock on their own ranches.
Not surprisingly, a number of these industry veterans (see Chapter 24
for the nation’s top breeders and win percentages) double as top owners
of racing Quarter Horses, with high win percentages in both
areas--further proof of their expertise and commitment to the sport.
