Handicapping 101

ASD offers thoroughbred action year round. Whether you’re completely new to the track or a budding handicapper making a return visit, ASD has epic excitement just waiting for you.


If you are new to the races or want to learn more about racing, be sure to stop by the fan education kiosk located on the main floor. Our racing specialists are there one hour prior to racing through the fourth race. They will teach you how to read a program, how to make a bet, analyze a race and assist you in signing up for a free HPIbet account and player reward card.

Before coming to the track, we suggest taking the time to view these short videos designed to teach you about the type of bets you can make as well as “Secrets to Playing the Races”.
