Frequently Asked Questions

OSOP Picks

All OSOP From the BackSide Horses are posted within the “OSOP Picks” category. Every day this category will be updated with the following day’s selections.

How does OSOP’s From The BackSide get it’s selections?

By using the Oldest System on the Planet, the BackSide provides horse racing selections every day for every North American track that’s running that day. If you own a copy of the Oldest System on the Planet, then you already know how each horse is selected, but if you do not own a copy of OSOP, you can pick up a copy at HorsePlayerHaven.com.

How many horses are selected per race?

The amount of OSOP horses in a race can vary from race to race, so to keep things simple, there can be no more than 2 qualifying OSOP horses in any given race otherwise the race is culled. Some races will have only 1 qualifying OSOP selection, while others may have 2. Other races will be skipped altogether.

When a race has one horse, it will be posted like this-

 

horsepick

 

If there are 2 horses, their names wil be seperated by a comma like this-

UPDATE- 3-10-2013- In some instances, there will be OSOP horses that run out strong at the first of the race, but never really finish well. These are what I call “terminal quitters”. As an added bonus to the BackSide selections, I am looking over every OSOP horse in every race and if I see the potential for an OSOP selection that is showing signs as a terminal quitter, this horse will be removed from the selections as well. This will be a great added bonus to BackSide members in an effort to raise our percentages and eliminate some horses that just will not get there for us.

How should I bet the selections?

This, of course, is entirely up to you. The horses are listed in the order in which they appear on the form, so there is no importance placed on the first listed horse over a second listed horse. Whether you bet one or both is up to your discretion. You may also choose to bet an exacta, daily doubles, pick 3′s, pick 4′s, etc. Again, this is your decision. OSOP’s From the BackSide only provides you with the qualifying OSOP horses in any given race, the rest is up to you!

Some of the horses selected didn’t run at all. Why is this?

Because selections are made at least one day in advance, some horses may scratch before a race. The reason why a horse may scratch can vary and sometimes happen as late as right before the race. If a horse does scratch, you may very well see him in an upcoming race. If the horse is a qualifying OSOP From the BackSide horse, we’ll be sure to post him again.
