Walter Seip of Las Vegas, author of Dynamic Ability (Mathematical Determination of a Thoroughbred's Capacity to Race) talked about the importance of weight, pace, paddock and post inspection during the Gambler's Book Shop's April 15 podcast. His book takes a mathematical approach to handicapping thoroughbreds and he comments about the authors, the handicapping experts he's been privileged to meet here in Las Vegas and elsewhere, along with recommended books.
Seip, in his 60s, offers some interesting tidbits about handicapping, how the game has changed--even where he suggests horseplayers go for to handicap the ponies when in Las Vegas. Seip loves to bet the horses and he tells why—along with how you can improve your own handicapping.
