This is what we like to see! Rather than go through the difficulty of trying to develop a system that works under all conditions, why not just get ‘specific’ and target just certain areas of the game.
That’s just what Walt Owen has done with his new The 6/7 Furlong Equation.
Here’s how it came about:
Walt, who as many of you know has been one of the game’s most prolific system writers for years now, was tinkering in his ‘workshop’ recently, experimenting with a sprint-based system he had published in American Turf Monthly in the 1980’s. He discovered that by changing just one rule, the system performed superbly on 6 and 7-furlong races. Not on 6-1/2 furlongs, or 5-1/2 furlongs, or at a mile, but just at 6 and 7 furlongs.
Walt does all of his research the old-fashioned way, i.e., by hand, but was so excited about the results he shipped the whole kit-and-kaboodle to us to do a thorough test. And guess what we found?
Sure enough, the system kicked butt at 6 and 7 furlongs but performed just so-so at the other distances. And we do mean ‘kicked butt’.
Our test comprised just over 18,700 races and showed a 31.8% win rate at 6-furlongs with a positive ROI of +48%. And get this: A full 52% ran 2nd for a +60% positive ROI. A modest profit was even realized by betting to show (+7%).
At 7-furlongs the results were even better. 36% winners, many at great prices, and a positive ROI of +61%. Betting to place again exceeded the win with a +71% ROI!
This is good stuff guys. It’s definitely a spot-play method, but one you should definitely have in your spot-play arsenal.
The method is very easy to implement and is a good ‘fit’ for multi-track play. We’d be willing to bet, that using $5 win wagers, you’ll have tripled your purchase price after your first week or so of play with the method, probably better! The 6/7 Furlong Equation is just $27.
