Horse Racing: Learn how to read the daily racing form

What is the Daily Racing Form?

The Daily Racing Form is a tabloid style newspaper dedicated to horse racing that was established in 1894. The paper was founded by Frank Brunell who was a New Jersey based handicapper and a writer during the late 1800's. The Daily Racing Form started out as his handicapping method which was developed after a year of heavy losses at the track. The first issue containing past performances in November of 1905 turned out to be revolutionary to the sport of horse racing. At first readers had no idea how to use them or what the abbreviations meant but today you will find a Daily Racing Form at every major horse racing track in North America.
