TrackMaster Introduces New Product Featuring Customized Betting

TrackMaster, a leading provider of electronic handicapping information, today announced the launch of “Ultra Angles,” a new product that notifies Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse handicappers when their personally customized betting angles are available.

Ultra Angles provides users with a sophisticated “angles to watch” list. There are hundreds of angles to choose from based on pedigree, horse performance, jockeys, and trainers and racetracks.

“Users decide what their most important handicapping angles are by choosing from the list provided on our web site,” explained Jim Vanderbosch, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at TrackMaster. “We then customize their personal angles web page and notify them via a once daily digest e-mail when those angles come into play.”

Vanderbosch believes the unique new product will prove to be a real time-saver for handicappers.

“This eliminates much of the time players have to spend poring over data looking for specific wagering angles they like to play,” Vanderbosch added. “Whether they are looking for horses who are moving to the dirt and have trainers who have a high win percentage taking horses from the turf to the dirt, or want to know about first-time turf horses who have a solid turf dam, or any of the hundreds of angles available, all they do is go to our web site and set up their preferences. They can even customize the list of tracks for which they receive notifications when angles are “in play.”

A complete list of angles is available on the company’s web site at Pricing is $19.95/month for up to 20 angles, or $39.95 a month for unlimited access.
