Ellis Starr, also known as "Ubercapper", has been studying horse racing and handicapping for over 35 years. Ellis fully understands all aspects of handicapping and wagering and was one of the first in his profession to publish his selections on the Internet, becoming an immediate hit with his philosophy of "teaching people to fish" while at the same time "giving them fish." Ellis does this by sharing his insights and the methodology he uses as part of the top-quality selections and analysis he creates.
Ellis also puts his money where his mouth is by participating in Handicapping Tournaments, recently winning the Derby Wars $15,000 Big Game contest. In addition, 2012 marks the seventh straight year Ellis qualified to join an elite group to qualify for the Keeneland Tournament of Champions.
Ellis is the National Racing Analyst for Equibase, The Thoroughbred Industry's Official Source for Racing Information, writing a widely distributed "Race of the Week" story covering the biggest races in North America. Ellis' articles have been published in Horseplayer magazine and in Australia's Practical Punting magazine as well as on the web site of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association.
Additionally, Ellis appears regularly on Sam Spear's "At the Track" weekly radio broadcast on KNBR in San Francisco as well as the Drake and Zeke show on 98.1 The Max in Memphis. His selections and analysis for races around the country can be found at the web sites of the major advance deposit wagering companies in North America - Twinspires, TVG, Xpressbet and Keeneland Select as well as Equibase and TrackMaster. Ellis' insights can also be found via twitter @ubercapper.
With a tremendous passion for helping fans of all levels to have a great day at the races, Ellis regularly assists groups attending the races, helping fans of all levels to become comfortable and familiar with racing and wagering while at the same time helping them to cash a few tickets, adding value and appeal to events by giving fans their own personal handicapper for the day.
In his daily handicapping, Ellis rarely meets a favorite he likes well enough to bet, specializing in finding vulnerable favorites. His style focuses relentlessly on one or more horses that he believes will run well at above-average odds. This style results in much higher payoffs when his selections win then most public handicappers. Ellis provides fair odds for win bets on his contenders, with which you can compare to the tote board to better determine when to play and when to pass.
Most importantly, Ellis is dedicated help you to make a profit now and in the future by analyzing the races and educating with handicapping lessons you can take with you in your handicapping endeavours later on, hoping to impart an edge over the public at large. Remember, favorites may win 33% (1/3) of the time, but they lose 67% (2/3) of the time. The public at large just wants winners. Ellis strives to break that habit, for himself and for you, because when you think just in terms of predicting the winner you sacrifice profit. Hardly anyone can make money over time just picking which horse will win the race and betting on that horse to win.
