Editors' Review

+

Many people who go to the racetrack are casual gamblers, placing bets based on the horses' names or their lucky numbers. Then there are those who take handicapping a little more seriously. QuickHorse '10 Horse Racing Software is designed for those serious handicappers, and not only because it assumes that users already have a fundamental understanding of how horseracing and wagering works. We can imagine only the most hardcore racing fans taking the time to wade through this program's abstruse interface and difficult navigation.

The program was designed with neither form nor function in mind. All of the text is capitalized, and if that weren't hard enough to read, it's also displayed in several garish colors on a dark gray background. The program's navigation takes place entirely via the use of buttons, and since it's incapable of scrolling, some parts of the interface are inaccessible. More than once we found ourselves trapped in a part of the program that we couldn't get out of, with no choice but to shut it down and start over. To say that we were not impressed with the program's interface would be a grave understatement.

It's unfortunate that the program is so difficult to navigate, because it does seem to contain some useful features. Users can view both past performances and upcoming race cards, and while the program can download free information from Brisnet, it also supports the use of paid subscription sites for users who are already members. Users can employ a variety of predefined handicapping methods or enter a custom method, and the program will print tipsheets for the day's card. The online Help file--which opens automatically in Internet Explorer regardless of whether it's your default browser-- is fairly detailed, and does a decent enough job of explaining the program to those who are patient enough to use it. Overall, though, we don't think that QuickHorse is easy to use enough for us to recommend.

QuickHorse '10 Horse Racing Software comes as a ZIP file. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We do not recommend this program.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of QuickHorse '10 Horse Racing Software 10.3.0. The trial version is limited to 30 days trial only.

"Has some racing coverage drawbacks."

March 15, 2015  |  By njcountyofficer

 |  Version: QuickHorse 0127 15.1.2a

Pros

A decent program if you already understand handicapping.

Cons

Cannot handicap quarter horses. Not for casual or novice handicappers.

Summary

A good program if you have a good knowledge of handicapping but it cannot handicap quarter horses (racing up to 1/4 of a mile), which is what I mainly handicap. I don't know why because quarter horses are much easier to handicap and programming them into QuickHorse wouldn't take much work. Maybe it's just not worth the effort for him to program QuickHorse for them since quarter horse racing is only done at certain tracks and the people betting them are only a small percentage of racing fans. If it worked on quarter horses I'd use it.
