There was an article two weeks ago in The Australian which quoted Waterhouse as saying his professional services were making 19 % profit this year and the line I took offence to indicated that he was the (only?)one helping punters, like noone else was doing that?? He can’t have been unaware of our many books, I know his dad has some, and our numerous Professional Punting Seminars which we have conducted over the past 25 years shouldn’t have escaped the notice of Waterhouse either. My articles in every major Racing publication of the past 40 years aren’t exactly secret either, Sportsman, Winning Post, Turf Monthly to name a few and of course my commentaries on his own bookmaking venture on SBS and ABC prime time news. Let alone my radio commentaries on various Racing Radio Stations.
Waterhouse obviously isn’t aware how hard it is to find someone to take your bets when you are winning, his own bookmaking service virtually banned many of our professional and semi professional punters when he was bookmaking, which is the reason why it is so hard to win, even when you learn how to punt. He assured the Australians readers that you simply took his set of prices (provided by his professional services) and backed the ones that were a better price than his market, well that has been basic practice for the past 50 or 60 years, and yes, betting to prices basically.
The bottom line is that 19.4% profit is virtually unattainable these days simply because of the obvious factors of being unable to get your money on at the price you need to make a solid profit.
The whole tone of the Australian article was offensive to both me and the many other people like me, who have been educating the punting public since before he was born! Pull the other one Tom!
That said, here’s some current information.
