ART OF HANDICAPPING RACE HORSES
I
CALLS FOR VERY FINE FIGURING
How do the bookmakers know what
odds to place on the horses In a race
ThIs question was asked hundreds of
timEs at the past race meeting In tile
Ollowlng article on Handicapping 11
J eafsy one of the best posted hand 1
CalJpers In the business tells of tile In
st1 figurIng done by bookmakers and
shrewd players He says
Handicapping Is a matter of common
sense use of Items of racing The turf
mathermtlclan can supply no flexible
measure that can be applied to the field
of horses Acquaintance with Individuals
men and horses Is one of the keenest
Iwms In handicappIng No turf student
ran give an Idea of the liking of horses
for the different kinds of soil or define
human combinations Doth are matters
of judgment and personal observation
The disposition of the thoroughbred Is
almost as broad In scope as that of hu
nJRutty The really great horse like the
true acute man overcome all dlfClcul
tiES and wIns Then are really few great
horses some of supreme speed are only
creatures of speed The judgment used In
placing such a horse Is often fatal S
sonby and Colin are modern types at the
hlghclasB and sensible horse They won
their races with superior management
and skill Both showed sense and am
bition in their youthbefore they raced
Speed Is the basis of handicapping
because It Is the keen factor which bears
mostly upon performance but Is value
less unless calculated upon the basis at
how speed was applied In the past Hand
jrapplng Is the calculation out at what
bas already been done Some horses fa
vor racing In front others choose to
come tram behind
Our timing Is Inaccurate and one of
the evils of the American turf Some
timers miss the application of their
watches at the start a1d then average
matters on the basis of what horses In
the race should do Officials generally
are paid large salaries while timers re
flve small wages for theIr services The
timer In a public way Is just as Important
as either judge or starter
Take Own Time
The Important speculators on the east
ern tracks who bet large sums on the
ertormance of the horses finds It pro I
Itable to keep their own time These I
same men watch performance closely and
bet on the judgment that comes from
pure observation for the winners of to
day come from the losers of past das
Mathematics can consider and apply the
weights distance and time of past per
fonnance to the probabilities of the fu
ture But figures cannotunless rein
glec with judgment born out of obser
atlon of racing and knowledge of Indl
Yldua peculiaritiesbe intelligently ap
plied to racing Figures even from the
foundation of Imperfect timing outclasses
all other methods of picking winners and
for that reason alone the general hon
esty of racing can be proven and accepted
epted
The average handicapper guesses at his
fsUmates Jan is not a machine He
has moodsstrong points weak points
good days and bad das just like thc
thoroughred horse Only the great horse
and the great man do great things reg
ularly Socalled Inside Information
should never be used In handicapping
The bookmaker flourishes upon his per
centages attention to details and the fail
ure at the public to allow for Individual
peculiarities
Must Study Horse
The player should study the horses and
their disposition and always figure on the
basis ot universal honestY and use hand
tap figures only as a check on his own
observations and Ideas at class and
should never seek to get even on a losing
day br taking a chance on a longshot I
whlh Is not within his calculations for I
tomorrow Is another day Never weaken J
rn YOUr selection because the price IS
long but always Insure yourself by place
or show betting
The average percentage of winning fa
vorites for the past ten years is about
u per cent at the average odds at 3 to
Z Less than 20 per cert of favorites
win on tracks that are designated as
slow muddy or heavy Always keep a
record of Impressions as to Individual ac
tion and performance In bad goIng
This leaves the percentage of winning
favorites on fast tracks exclusively still
greater than the average of 41 per cent
Always get values from races or the
same distance as the one you are figur
Ing on It possIble otherwise take the next
one There are so many degrees of mud that
necessarily It Is difficult to apply the
figures of a heavy track race satlsfac
torly A reasonable basis may be ar
rived at however by careful comparI
sons Perhaps the best way Is to use
fast track figures and then use your
knowledge of the mUdlovlng proclivities
of each horse In grading the figures up
and down This Is certainly the best way
for a sloppy track with good tooting
Jockey Count
Then two or more horses figure close
a knowledge of the comparative abilities
of the jockeys riding will be useful and
quite necessary In speculative success
After all else Is done In order to apply
with any degree of success any system
of handicapping one must have acquired
by study or observation of performance
a knowledge of the Individual peculiari
ties of each horse being calculated upon
otherwise your work will be of no avail
Figures will not lie IC you make them
right
The speed of tracks arles from year
to year owing to new dressing or dlt
ference In methods of working by super
Intendents Turf students should observe
these changes and make comparisons by
a number of consistent horses over the
same track the previous year and com
pare with records the same horses are
now making
For the past rear on the metropolitan
tracks for 1000 races the best winning
prices are shown to be from 8 to 5 to
about 4 to 1 which embraces about 40
per cent of the total number and should
be considered seriously
There the majority or speculators lose
Is n trying to win too much on a shoe
string The average business man Is
satisfied to earn 25 per cent per annum
on the capItal Invested while the man on
the race track wants to double his capi I
tal each day In doing so he overbets
himself and loses and then labors under
tile delusion that the racing game Is not
straight

SPITBALL NO lONGER
DREADED BY BATSMEN
Chance of the Cubs Says He Wont
Have a USpitter on His
Team
Chicago Oct 31It looks as It the spit
ball had seen Its best days This deliv
ery which has had a meteoric career no
longer has the batters ot the land tremb
ling In their boots The treat pitchers
who have had such a tremendous suc
cess with the spltter as It 13 sometimes
called will probably have to look to an
other style It they want to keep In the
big leagues It Is on the decline
Two of the greatest spit ball twirlers
In the land are Walsh and Smith of the
Chicago White Sox They have been the
dread ot the opposing batters for years
But this Is no longer the case In the
recent city series between the Sox and
the Cubs the decreasing value of the spit
ter was demonstrated Although the
Cubs are not accustomed to that kind
of a delivery In Its most approved form
they seemed to like It
Against the kIngs of the splUer the
Cubs opposed Brown and Overall past
masters In the curve ball And the curve
ball won the day
I wouldnt have a spit ball pitcher
on the team says Manager Chance of
the Cubs This Is not meant as any
reflection on Walsh or Smith for they
are great pitchers But when you have
a pitcher you want to know where he Is
going to throw the ball
Take a spit ball pitcher Even he
Is not sure where the ball Is going to
break Sometimes yes frequently he
tries to make It break on the right cor
ner of the plate and It goes to the other
side Like as not the batter kills that
kind of a ball and he slugs It over the
lot Then too the pitcher Is liable any
moment to let loose a wild pitch Its
a hard ball to control
I want a pitcher who Is reasonably
sure where the ball Is going Moreover
I want my catchers to be as free from
danger of broken hands and fingers as
possible When that spit ball comes
hurtling through the air the catcher must
grab It almost blindly Look at the num
ber of times Catcher Sullivan of the Sox
has been hurt Its due to the spit balL
I could cite many cases and Its all due
to the unknown break of the spit ball
SOLDIERS NOW BENT ON

MICHIGAN VICTORY OVER
SYRACUSE BRINGS HOPE
Alumni Now Give Yosts Men Chance
to Win From Old Rivals Pennsy
and Minnesota
Michigan men throughout the country
held many a jollification Saturday night
over the 43 to 0 score against Syracuse
Cnn It be that Yosts machine Is back
to the form shown from 1901 to 19051 was
the question asked While some at the
ounger alumni were of the opinion that
such was the fact older heads were not
so sanguine
Like Coach Yost and the student body
they fear the Pennsylvania and Minneso
ta games with Notre Dame Is not to be
overlooked While the Syracuse score Is
big and more than evens up for the de
feat of 1908 the present Syracuse eleven
Is not to be considered among the strong
est teams of the east It Is true that
Yale could make but three touchdowns
against Syracuse but the early games
for Yale fall by long odds to show the
full strength or the New Haven eleveh
The defeat oC Chicago by Minnesota and
by a score that was decisive Is another
reason for worry for the Ann Arbor elev
en The game at Minneapolis bore out
for once Papa Staggs bear stories
For the past two weeks the Maroon head
predicted defeat for his team Of course
he was trying to Instill as much overcon
fidence as possIble In the Minnesota camp
and to send his men Into the fray with a
full understanding of the task before
them
The linnesoblIchlgan game will be
the first meeting of the two elevens since
the memorable 6 to 5 game of tOO3 which
left the rivalry Intense and the feeling
strong between the two schools That the
game will be one ot the most Interesting
In the middle west Is assured and the
record crowd or the year may be count
ed on
MichIgan men are however jubilant
over the prospects of the Maize and Blue
and the prospects of Ictorles over Penn
sylvania and Minnesota art looked upon
In the light of a good fighting chance

SHEEP FREE FROM
CONTAGIOUS ILLS
CI B stewart Believes Ailment
Is Not Real Lip and
Leg Disease
From observations which C B Stew
art secretary of the Utah Wool Grow
ers association had with stockmen In
the east on the trip from which he has
just returned It is thought the ailment
among the sheep of the western states
Is not as serious as was thought some
time ago It Is believed that many of
the supposed caSeS Of the necrobacll
losls or lip and leg disease Is nothing
more than the common sore mouth
11r Stewart visited Chicago after
leaving Omaha where he went to look
after the shipment of some sheep from
the Stewart ranch here and he heard
little about the sheep disease there
Many of the sheep are being sent to
Chicago Instead of Omaha
Mr Stewart visited the national wool
storage warehouse at Chicago and found
that wool prices are good In the east
He said matters look good for the wool
men this year
He also heard much comment on the
fact that the mutton market seems to
be going down every year and was told
In several Quarters that the sheepmen
can do better by shipping as many
lambs to the east as possible as the
people seem to want lamb Instead of the
meat of the older sheep
Contributions are still coming In to
the fund which Is to be used to stamp
out the lip and leg disease In Utah
and steps will be taken to root out any
of the diseases which are found
Dr A C Young state yeterinarinh
will go north this week to look Into
some supposed cases of glanders and
tuberculosis among animals which have
been reported to him

one The claim made right along by Man
ager Murray that he would have plenty
of good racing material for the Ogden

years was known as the king of the
diamond 15 down and out
Early Sunday morning Rusle was
picked up on the streets by the local po
lice In a pitiable condition from the ef
feels of drink His behavior even In his
almost stupefied condition showed that he
had once seen better das and the of
ficers at the city hal treated him with
more consideration than Is the lot of the
average drunk He had no money and
apparently no friends to come to his
aid In misfortune After a few hours
rest at the city hall Rusle was allowed
to depart
Rusle In his prIme was recognized as
one of the premier bal players of the
United States and for years held the ad
miration of the crowds that folowed the
National league games Several yea
leage
ago he came to Idaho and took up S
acres of land on what Is now the Deer
Flat project but the liquor habit which
he had formed In his palmier days could
not be shaken off and he has apparently
gone from bad to worse
