Today's free race is the G3 Distaff H. at Aqueduct, a 7f dirt race for fillies and mares.

There are many great tools in Betmix to help you handicap. Creating a mix (a group of factors and weights) that are specific to a race type is always going to be the best approach. Some people may find that process a bit confusing at first, so to help new users get out of the gate quickly with Betmix we have added a new feature called MixBot.

This tool is part of BirdDog, our new handicapping interface. You can see the results of the MixBot on the Handicapping Overview screen along with several other statistical models for ranking horses.

MixBot does the dirty work for you. First of all it will search the database for the most recent similar race. A similar race is one that was run at the same track, surface, distance and class as the one you are handicapping.

Once it finds that race it runs MixMaker to find the best Mix, then comes back and applies that mix to the current race for you. It will then put those rankings in the Handicapping Overview widget for you.

The MixBot will then repeat the process, finding the most recent race won by a favorite (winner paid less than $6.00), and finally the most recent race won by a longshot (winner paid more than $15.00).

When you see the same horses showing up in the top spots for all three mix combinations you can be pretty confident in the selection.

Sometimes the most recent race will be the same as the most recent favorite or longshot race – if that happens then you will only see two lines of rankings in the MixBot section.

Here is the Handicapping Overview for today's free race:


The best mix that could be created by the computer for the most recent similar race won by a favorite and by a longshot have been applied to this race and both of them come up with the #1 (Paulassilverlining) and #5 (Bar of Gold) as the two top choices.
