Bet This, Not That: Top trainer angles


Top trainers are top trainers because they win races. They win a lot of them, and they win the richest races, racking up victories and total earnings at a high rate. On average, the best trainers can be expected to win about 20 percent to 25 percent of the races they enter, but often they get overbet, especially in relation to their relative success previously in certain types of races. Other times, their runners are comparatively overlooked, providing great value and opportunities to make money.
