When you talk about a horse betting system, you are basically talking about a system that helps you determine the possible winners of a race based on facts and certain criteria. There are no betting systems that can guarantee you a win all the time though but with constant study and observation along with the help of one or two systems you can rely on, you can actually find a safe pattern to use when betting to make you win more than you lose.

Here are some betting systems and handicap systems that you can use when they go into horse race betting:

Jockey Improvement - Some people find that when a good horse gets a better jockey for his next races, there is a bigger chance of the horse winning this time. Always try to take note of positive jockey changes when choosing the horses to bet on. This can usually mean that a horse with a good record can perform better under a better jockey and may end up winning you some bets.

Z Pattern - You may find that some horses that are worth betting on are those that often make a good start, lag in the middle then improves his position near the end of the race. Try to look at horse's histories that have this kind of activity and you will find a possible winner. You will need to make sure that this happened to these horses due to their ability and not due to the tiring of their rivals during the race.

Surface Switch - Some individuals who study how a horse does on certain surfaces find that when some of them change from dirt to turf or from turf to dirt, they run better. Take note of such changes, specifically if a horse moves from dirt to turf. If a horse is running on both kinds of tracks regularly, this may mean that the horse is sounder than those that run on dirt alone.

Speed Selection - This is a horse betting system that uses the process of elimination. You can find your winners by eliminating certain choices you have with a set criteria which includes not playing or betting on a race that has more than a couple first time starters and maiden races. You can eliminate horses that did not race their last two races on the track you are betting on today. You can also eliminate horses that ran on a different surface as the one being run on today. Horses that never made the top three or near the lead of the race can also be eliminated from the list. If more than a single horse is left in the list, you should choose the one with the best run last race. You can then box bet this horse with others that are left on the list as long as there are less than four horses left on your speed selection list. If there are more than four horses left on this list of yours after eliminating some with this procedure, don't bet on this race and drop it.
