How to Handicap Horses With Consensus
The popular Consensus Page tabulates the selections of the Digest handicappers and various features and presents the outcome of those results in an easy-to-read 1-2-3 format.
The day's "Best Bet", the top rated horse that has the biggest point margin over the second rated horse, is highlighted in bold type. The point values for the consensus box is as follows: 1st = 5pts, 2nd = 2pts, 3rd = 1pt.
This page is very helpful for players that didn't get a chance to do their own handicapping or wish to find horses to fill out a Pick-3, Pick-4 or possibly a Trifecta. The consensus best bet horse usually doesn't pay a lot, but tends to win at a high percentage. A handicapper can also find out the top three horses in the Fractional Charting, CPR and Fire Numbers at a quick glance.
