Past Performances generated by all versions of JCapper (including the FREE versions of JCapper Silver and JCapper BASIC) can be customized using settings persisted in the JCapper Enhanced Settings Module. The above sample past performances illustrate a few of the settings. (There are currently more than 20 separate user defined options related to display of horse running lines in JCapper Past Performances.)

• Past Performances generated by all versions of JCapper are rendered as HTML files -- meaning that you can double click individual files to display past performances for individual races in a web browser (outside of JCapper.)

• Because JCapper Past Perforamnces are HTML, you can email HTML files for individual races to yourself (from home) -- enabling you to view them while at the track or OTB using an IPad or other mobile device. (Paperless Past Performances.)

• Because JCapper Past Performances are HTML, you can easily print them from a web browser... Just right click the document and select PRINT.

How to get JCapper Past Perforamnces:

1. Download files from HDW using the FREE File Download Tool that comes with JCapper Silver or JCapper BASIC.

2. After downloading, run a file build routine to create comma delimited text past performance .JCP files.

3. Load .JCP files for the race cards you want to play into JCapper.

4. Launch JCapper's Past Performance Generator, select track code and race number -- and begin handicapping (within seconds after downloading) right from your office or living room!

• With JCapper Past Performances, you will never drive all over town looking for a Daily Racing Form again.

• Best of all, JCapper Past Performances are based on quality data from HDW (Handicappers Data Warehouse) and cost less than a Daily Racing Form.

• Under the JCapper (Daily) Flex Plan, you have a choice: You can download files from HDW on a daily basis - or you can get unlimited file downloads on a monthly basis.

Back HDW JCapper Data

HDW now has back JCapper data available from 1/1/2009 going forward. Data is sold in one month blocks. Each one month block gets you data and results for all thoroughbred races run in North America that month.

JCapper Silver and JCapper BASIC data pricing: $89.00 per month, 10% bulk discount for purchases of 6 or more months at a time.

JCapper Platinum data pricing: $119.00 per month, 10% bulk discount for purchases of 6 or more months at a time.

Q. What are the differences in file content between HDW JCapper Platinum and HDW JCapper Silver data plans?

A. None. Data files downloaded from HDW are identical for JCapper Platinum and JCapper Silver data subscribers.

Pricing differences between the two data plans are based entirely on what the Platinum program does with the data vs. what the Silver program can do.

Q. Does a JCapper Silver Data Plan subscriber lose his data (have to start over) in the event he later (a year or two in) decides to upgrade to JCapper Platinum?

A. No. After upgrading, the Platinum program can be used to rebuild Silver databases from scratch -- converting them into Platinum databases.

To purchase back HDW JCapper data, contact HDW directly. (see HDW contact info listed above.)

Rebates (Thoroughbred ADW) - Helping players find the best possible rates...      - click here -

A free service from
Rebates can affect your bottom line in a very profound way. Aside from discipline, the ability to execute a game plan, a willingness to roll up one's sleeves and go to work... every single professional player that I have met in the past 10 years shares one other thing in common...

All of them... every single one... earns rebates.

What are rebates? And more importantly... how do you get them?      ...Read More - click here -

Full disclosure: If you take me up on my offer, once you are signed up and start earning rebates, I receive compensation in the form of a referral fee.

Rewards are proportional to work. People are often surprised to learn that I don't handicap on race day. About 98% of my handicapping is done in the months and weeks leading up to race day... |Continued...|

The Sphere - In June, 2006 I wrote an article titled "The Sphere" which was originally posted on the old JCapper Message Board. Fast forward two years. I'm told that about half a dozen sites around the web now have links to it. I was really flattered to see it featured on the Cal Expo Harness Site. The article itself may be a little out there. But it gets the point across. When it comes to betting horses profitably, discipline is the single most important factor in the game. If you haven't read the article yet, or haven't read it in a while...    |Continued...|
The Story of JCapper


My name is Jeff Platt. I'm an independent software developer. That means I design, test, and create software for a living. I have been doing this since 1987. I have done web enabled projects for Fortune 500 companies like American Express, Verizon Wireless, STMicroelectronics, Trammell-Crowe, and others. I have done work for small clients too. I got my start in programming by designing and coding an accounting information system for a group that owned car dealerships. I mention my programming backround as a way of letting you know that when it comes to software and databases I might know a thing or two about what I'm doing...    |Continued...|

UDMs - Framework and Style

A UDM or User Defined Model is an electronic definition, stored for frequent use, that describes a handicapping method in exact detail. In JCapper, users can create UDMs for specific tracks, distances, surfaces, and classes. UDMs can also be created to exploit the patterns of specific trainers, riders, and owners. Users can set factor constraints using rank, numeric value, and gap for any of the individual factors supported by JCapper. UDM definitions can be created using any of the factors in combination with each other. A UDM can be as as generic or as specific as the player desires.

A well thought out UDM is a thing of beauty and a true reflection of the player's preferred individual handicapping style.    |Continued...|
