The Secret you never heard before...

There’s no doubt gambling at a professional level is hard work. In fact, I have followed my passion of two-year-old horse racing since 1985. Almost 40-years of honing my skills to achieve my goal of making my betting pay.

To achieve this level of knowledge is above and beyond 99.9% of the gambling population. As the saying goes: ‘You don’t know what you don’t know’ and there has never been a truer word said when it comes to mastering the complex world of horse racing.

People have asked: ‘Why do you only bet on two-year-old horse racing?’

The answer is simple: there simply isn’t enough time to do everything and more importantly there is no need. Such thinking is just one point of the wisdom which comes from finding answers to questions. Because, to put it simply, that is exactly what a successful professional gambler does. They understand their niche to the highest level and work to a method and process that is replicable. There is no logic or wisdom in trying to answer the same questions without learning. For that reason, every question must be answered. The best answer must be found. This is no easy task and leading to this point may have taken years.

Literally years to answer a question.

Decades to answer hundreds of questions.

And the understanding it’s a lifelong journey of learning.

Gambling is about knowledge, skill and experience.

Here’s the important thing to remember: ‘Knowledge comes before money!’

Too many gamblers think gambling is all about money. To a point it is but the days of ‘buying money’ have long gone. We live in a competitive world. In fact, if you could see the competition from the bookmakers and layers, the push of the competent backers you would have reason to raise your game. There is no hiding place. Whatever it takes you have to set your self apart from the crowd. As a wise old sage said: ‘Betting against the crowd.’ How can everyone be right? They can’t. You either know more than the competition or you lose. But here’s the key quote: ‘You don’t need to be the best gambler in the world.’

‘You simply need to be that little better than most.’

It sounds simple but it isn’t. Far from it. You know it isn’t simple. How can it be. The answer to every question can be seen in the horse racing results. They are speaking to you. Listen and you will understand.

What makes a winner?

What makes a loser?

It’s so easy to move onto the next race. That is a mistake. You need an approach, method and process. You need to understand what makes you a better gambler. So many punters simply never learn. They have been gambling for a lifetime and they are at the same level as they started.

That is a travesty.

You may be asking: ‘What do I need to know to be a professional gambler?’

I will gladly outline my approach. As you can imagine, I won’t be giving you the answer to every question because its not in my interests and even if I did it would take time to learn.

You don’t just wake up one morning to find you are a professional gambler.

It’s a pleasant thought but it’s not reality... Remember the film: Vanilla Sky staring Tom Cruise.

So what sets me apart from the wave of losing gamblers?

To set myself apart I need to know the best unraced and lightly raced two-year-old horses in training. How do I know the cream of the crop? Not just one horse trainer but all of them big or small. How can that be possible? It comes from learning and my gambling partners and I have the luxury of having that information at hand. In fact, we have an updated list of super stars which is the foundation to our success.

This is just part of the jigsaw puzzle.

You need to understand each and every horse trainer. What are their strengths and weaknesses? Both are as important as each other. Don’t be fooled into thinking it is all about finding winners. It is about finding value. You could have a 75% win rate and be losing cash hand over fist. It’s another understanding of wisdom. Each trainer has a point where the winners start and end. Where the losers start and end. You either know or you don’t know. If you don’t understand all aspects of data analysis you will struggle. That blind spot will be your eternal weakness. Picked off by the piranhas until you wise up, learn more and bet with the confidence of knowing.

You either know or you don’t know.

What do you know?

If you aren’t confident in your knowledge then you are not only lacking in confidence (knowledge) but you will be losing.

Knowledge is power.

Strangely, the best bets are often due to circumstance.

If you don’t know what that means it’s another part of the learning curve. Another factor of wisdom.

There is much to learn.

You don’t know what you don’t know. You have to answer 50 questions to see the next one. It’s smiling like the layer who knows more and waiting to take your cash and leave you disappointed.

Until the day when you look back and smile that little more.

I know more.

You take their cash.

This post just gives a brief glimpse through the eyes of a gambling man who has spent a lifetime of learning to be a winner. I have to carve out a successful approach where the devil is in the detail and replicable. Worked into a lifestyle that suits me and not glued to the laptop. As I’ve said a few times here: ‘You don’t know what you don’t know.’

Until the day you do.
