Greg Lawlor San Diego Handicapper and Creator of The Race Horse Body Language Training Academy

Greg Lawlor San Diego handicapper created The Race Horse Body Language Training Academy. Mr. Lawlor said “Race Horse Body Language is used by only about 3% to 5% of all handicappers. Race Horse Body Language is the best kept secret in horse racing. 30 years ago I developed a series of tapes that described how a horse talks to anyone that knows what to look for.”

The art of reading a horse’s body language has almost been lost yet is a major component of handicapping. According to Mr. Lawlor “Looking at past performance, workouts, ancestry, even Jockey and Trainer history is the mainstay of handicapping. But it is all based on past performance.” Mr. Lawlor went on to say “Body Language looks at the horse as it is today. This becomes very valuable when considering Maidens and two year old horses”

According to Mr. Lawlor, adding body language to a person’s handicap skills will allow a handicapper to either confirm or eliminate your choice in any particular race. He said, “Doing that will result in winning more and losing less.”

The original tapes were based on the skills of three other expert body language handicappers in addition to Mr. Lawlor; Bonnie Ledbetter, Joe Takach and Tom Ainslie. When describing just what the course can do for a handicapper, Mr. Lawlor told us “When you master the information in this educational course and own that competitive edge you are well on your way to successful and profitable handicapping! You can use your new found knowledge to defeat false favorites and to spot true Value. Having this knowledge will put you way ahead of the traditional handicapper.”

Mr. Lawlor believes in backing up his claims of “You can win more and lose less by adding Body Language to your handicapping skills.” To do so, The Race Horse Body Language Training Academy has a web posting of a 100 race test they have conducted. This test shows the date, track, horse, odds and results. A presumed $2 was wagered on win, place and show in each race.

The result of the test was impressive. The win rate was 40%. 77% of the horses were in the money and the ROI was 63%. All of the evaluation was done via computer.

There was a day where a Handicapper could only use a horse’s Body Language while at the race track. But 80% of all bettors today are on line or at off track facilities. The goal of this training is to teach how to evaluate the horses, not only at the track but by using a computer monitor as well. Mr. Lawlor is quick to point out “The player that goes to the track still has a better chance of evaluation the horses and should be there in person if they can.”

When asked how a person can find the training Mr. Lawlor informed us “Basic training will be given in a free webinar which is being held in conjunction with handicap trainers and Major Race Tracks.”
