In WagerMate, you can set all of your filters, and then save them in a “strategy” file (with “wmst” as the extension).
I developed a new strategy today — in about 10 minutes. First, I’ll show you the screen shots with my filters set. The first page of filters looks like this:
The second page of filters are set like this:
Note that I’ve set the new Track Quality filters to eliminate some tracks. The last page of filters:
Here, I decided to skip any races that had more than 2 unpredictable horses. Most of those are first time starters, or horses new to a surface.
You can see that I named this strategy “V4A.wmst”. OK, you can probably think of a better name. On the upside, it shows a small profit:
You can download the V4A.wmst file and see if it works for you.
In addition to the new filters I mentioned yesterday, WagerMate 4.0 has a lot of improvements in how it evaluates horses, and runs its simulations.
Here are the back testing results on my 2009-2017 data, with the default filters:
If you did no handicapping of your own, and simply bet on the 46,528 races that WagerMate told you to, you’d have won 25.34% of those races and lost 6.01% of your money.
Compare that to your competition — if they bet blindly, they’d lose 15% or 20% (the track’s takeout) — so you have a huge head start.
I hope you can use WagerMate’s filters AND your own expertise to get results that are even better than the WagerMate default selections.
Best of luck!
Version 4.0 of WagerMate has been released. The most visible feature is that there are now 21 handicapping filters instead of just 7.
The first page should look fairly familiar:

I’ll post soon about some other new features.
