This algorithm earned me an "A" in this class. And it worked so well, that I put it online to see if people would pay for the computer-picked horses. At the time the dot.com explosion was reaching its peak, so it certainly seemed feasible. A small business was born.
Every year I study and bet on the Triple-Crown races. We had a very good run in the 1970s, 80s, 90s into the 2000s. You could use the Dosage Index to basically eliminate most runners in these races, especially the mile-and-a-quarter Kentucky Derby held on the first Saturday in May at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., and the Belmont Stakes’ mile-and-a-half held five weeks later at Belmont Park on Long Island.
