I have researched some statistics that will give you more chance of finding that winning horse racing bet, or more importantly avoiding a losing one. I have tried to look at some more unusual angles, that people may not be so aware of. I have used data from 1986 to 2002 : 1. The sex of a horse makes a difference when carrying a penalty. Colts and geldings have a far superior record to fillies and mares.

Colts / geldings when carrying a penalty - 1523 wins from 7672 runners. Strike rate 19.9% for a small loss on investment of 3.8%.

Fillies / mares when carrying a penalty - 510 wins from 2981 runners. Strike rate 17.1% for a much bigger loss on investment of 16.8%.
