Greyhound Helper is a handicapping program that uses data from the Daily Racing Form to formulate the entries with the best chance of winning a Dog Race.
It runs under any computer capable of running Windows 98SE through Windows 7.
Data entry and Command Button actiavtion can be accomplished using Voice Commands. Version 2.2 is compatible with Microsofts's Speech Software in Vista and Windows 7.
Version 2.2 handles both Standard and Composite Speed Rating (CSR) Grading (recently incorporated at Phoenix).
Speed and Distance are calculated usings Feet Per Second (FPS). Calculating FPS is not difficult but applying it to Distance differences is extremely complicated. Our Greyhound proprietary FPS engine is the same one used in TBred-DDCH and Harness-DDCH -- it has proven highly effective and been improved over the last 6 years.
Distance differences are automatically computed. If a dogs past races were at 550 Yards and todays race is at a greater or lesser Distance, the Distance offset is computed internally. The user need not be concerned with the offset.
Distance input can be in either Yards or Metres. A Distance Calculator has been included to convert fractional mile distances to Yards/Metres (i.e. 5/16, 3/8).
The handicapping engine has been enhanced to conform to our simulator results (using 825 races from 2008-2009) - increasing the already high accuracy by 9%.
The Data Input interface makes it easy to input data. A typical race of 8 dogs can be input in under 5 minutes.
G.H. features an Internal Wizard. This points out aspects of a dog's performance in the race you are using to handicap him, that you may have missed.
G. H. gives you a tremendous advantage -- it shows you the user just what to expect in an upcoming dog race.
Listed below are SOME of the aspects covered by Greyhound Helper:
The next three paragraphs are from the G. H. documentation:
Some fans pick a dog because they like the name. Greyhound Racing has "no place for sentimentality". Look around you at the track, see John Q. Public, he plays his favorite number or a dog with his nephew's name in it. HE IS A LOSER OVER 90% OF THE TIME! This is not a LOTTERY, it's a DOG RACE!
If you are just going to the dog track for entertainment then don't bother using Greyhound Helper. If you are serious about winning, pay attention to the factors and race scenarios that G. H. points out to you.
Chances are almost CERTAIN that you will NEVER have a play in EVERY race "IF" you follow G. H.'s advice. There is a reason that some bets are called "sucker bets." Don't be a lillipop.
