Software Version – ‘Automatic Play’ — an absolutely incredible hit, with the Exacta ‘cold as well — a $126.40 Win Payoff, and the $274.60 Exacta two times!






Software Version – ‘Ace’ Play



The Big 4 + 1 method has two ‘power’ plays, one called the ‘Ace’, which is largely a trainer competency move, and the ‘automatic’ play, which considers performance factors.  Above is a great example of an ACE play, where in a small field Big 4 still uncovered a $20.80 winner in Munnings Sister.


Software Version – the NQC Play













The Big 4 + 1 software program is a powerful wagering tool.  The primary plays, the ‘automatic’ play and the ‘ace’ play, are where you are going to find your best opportunities, especially on the place and show end.



However, often you will find races that have no ace or automatic plays, but still have contenders.  We call these NQC, or Non-Qualifying Contenders.  When these are present, you will find them listed to the right of the BET 4: designation.  Our research shows that the winner can often be found among these horses, some at very nice prices, and, at times, a good Exacta payoff.

NQCs have at least one positive Big 4 factor going for them, but fall a bit short of being full qualifiers.

In the screenshot above is a situation which we see often in the Big 4 program.  There are three NQCs, 3, 5 and 8.  The 3, Long Face, is at 14-to-1 and runs 2nd to the 8, a decent $75.60 Exacta payoff being the result.

When an NQC is at 8-to-1 or higher, it is always wise to use that horse in any exotic wagers you may be making and/or, throw an across-the-board wager on him.  When two or more NQCs surface, and at least one is 6-to-1 or better, consider an Exacta box and/or a wps wager on the longer price.

It is also advisable to use NQCs in your Pick 3 and Pick 4 sequences.


**RPM NOTE:  Jon Worth developed this method a couple years back but was hesitant to release it because he feared wide distribution would hurt the average

mutuels, especially the show mutuels (since Jon plays mostly show bets and show parlays).  We assured him that given the fact that only a few hundred

would be distributed and not all the users would be playing everyday, that his fears were unfounded.  So Jon agreed, providing we would limit sales to 400

copies and, when the software version came out, just 250 copies.

Below we have produced Jon’s initial workout, and you can see why he was so excited.  We have also included the much, much larger 4-1/2 year RPM study,

and you can see that the overall results were very similar.  We have no doubt that, provided the simple rules are followed, The BIG 4 + 1 Methodology will

provide the user with similar results, and even better results by following the Exacta wagering suggestions included with your purchase.**


Jon’s Introduction to Big 4 + 1 .  The rest of the very thorough and detailed text, starting with the elimination rules, is of course included in the booklet when you receive it.



































































































You can see from these results, even though the sample was small, that The Big 4 + 1  Methodology is an ideal tool for the player eager to make a serious assault on the races. 

The 52-Month RPM study (below), while showing reduced overall %’s, nonetheless confirms that The Big 4 + 1 Method is a steady and consistent winner.





















The BIG 4 + 1 Methodology is a thoroughly researched, proven profitable method of play. 


It is easy to figure and use, and will produce consistent results with minimum runouts. 


“I’ve always enjoyed the Worth Company’s products.  Months of research goes into each and every method they produce, and the resulting product manual, from explanation of the rules to the examples to the wagering strategies are the most complete and understandable I have ever seen.  I have personally tested The Big 4 + 1 Method, and can tell you straight out that it delivers everything it promises(including a $27.20 winner at Santa Anita today! 4/11 – race 3).”       Tom Console


“To me, Tom & Jon Worth have always been the ‘show-wagering’ kings.  I have literally made a living wagering (I primarily do show parlays) on their selections from their Show-A-Profit method, Place-To-Win method and their recent Fitness Factor method.  And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, along Jon comes with The Big 4 + 1 Method, which has resulted in an even higher average mutuel for my show plays.  Yes, I use the system daily and observe that nice money can be made playing to win and place as well, but I am so comfortable and feel so safe with my style of play that I will just stick to the ‘show’.  Thanks for another great product!”

Bob Shurig, author & pro player.
