The Diamond Racing System is a horse racing betting system that has supposedly been 5 years in development. It is relatively new to market but boasts some very good looking results.
Introduction to The Diamond Racing System
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it I don’t know how many times. A betting system will always be superior to a tipster service in my mind. The reasoning for this is incredibly simple. A good betting system will remove any reliance that you have on somebody else. This means a lot of different things, and I won’t get into them too much here, but there is a lot to be said for having control over your own betting. And really bluntly, that just isn’t much of an option when you’re following a tipster service.
Unfortunately, as great as genuinely good betting systems are, they are also few and far between. I can count the number on one hand. So with this in mind, I was very intrigued when I started getting multiple emails about a betting system that has been producing a 60% strike rate and has turned a respectable profit. Of course, this is the internet. Anybody can claim anything, a fact that I am all to aware of. But what is really interesting about The Diamond Racing System is that the person behind the service has actually logged their results.
As I have mentioned, The Diamond Racing System has been 5 years in the making, and there is proofing seemingly provided for about 2 of those. This means that in theory we are able to get a solid understanding of what you can expect from this service. Right? Well, I am ever a cynic and whilst this does seem to be the case on paper, I do have one or two questions about it all. Something that I am sure some people may take exception to, because there is a lot of hype around this one. So, let’s get into it.
What Does The Diamond Racing System Offer?
Something that I always have to mention as a caveat when I’m dealing with something that is a betting system is that this will not be a super in depth look. The fact of the matter is that irrespective of what I might think about a product, I don’t believe that it is fair to give away information that is kept behind a paywall.
This means that those of you who may be here for a step by step look at The Diamond Racing System, will be disappointed (you would be surprised how often that happens). With that said, that doesn’t mean that I will dodge everything either. There is definitely some information that I think I can talk about with The Diamond Racing System that doesn’t involve giving too much away.
Now there are a couple of things that are said about The Diamond Racing System that make this jump out at me. The person behind the system states that they believe their system is “the very next best thing” to infallible. That sets the standards pretty bloody high, and as I often do when a claim like this is made, they are also the standards I will be holding this against.
So, what do you get? Well… the short answer to this is a pretty basic offering. Not that this is necessarily an inherently bad thing you understand. I have long maintained (and will continue to) that having too much unnecessary information can be as bad, if not worse, than not having enough information. I know that seems like an odd statement, but it is definitely true in my experience.
Building on this, I will say that as an instructional manual for a betting system, The Diamond Racing System is what I would probably call adequate. It is well written enough, about on part with what I would expect. After all, most people who create betting systems aren’t authors. Whilst this might sound like the very minimum that you would expect, I can tell you from experience that a lot of betting systems somehow manage to get even this wrong.
Arguably more importantly than how it is written though is how it is presented. Here, The Diamond Racing System does a very good job. There is a decent flow to everything and it is easy enough to understand what you are doing. Not that this is a particularly difficult system. Once again, this might sound like a criticism or an underhanded comment, but it really isn’t. Keeping things as simple as you can isn’t something most people seem to manage.
With that out of the way, let’s talk about what sort of things you are looking for. The Diamond Racing System is ultimately concerned with finding horses that are likely to win a race. This seems like something that you’d expect any horse racing betting system to aim towards, but the fact is that it is rarely that simple. Here, it is.
The approach taken produces a manageable enough number of bets and is a pretty long way from prohibitive. What I will say though is that it is very apparent from both the proofing provided and the approach taken that you aren’t going to be getting huge winners here. Personally, if I were looking to follow The Diamond Racing System for the longer term, I’d try to get accounts with multiple bookies as well as leveraging an odds comparison site.
This has multiple benefits. Firstly, and most obviously, you will be maximising your returns. Something that you should always aim to do with low odds betting. More importantly though, if you are hitting that 60% strike rate that is claimed, then your accounts should ultimately last a little bit longer.
And this brings me to that claimed strike rate. I have little reason to doubt that the person who is behind the system may have achieved this. What I will say though is that the results are now erring more towards 55% based off their proofing. Furthermore, I am a little bit sceptical that you will get this yourself from The Diamond Racing System. Especially when you first start out (I will talk a little bit about this later on).
How Does The Diamond Racing System Work?
Now the part where I don’t really get to say too much and talk about how The Diamond Racing System works. The sales material for the system refers to it as ground breaking. I’ve seen a lot of stuff in my time, and I’m not entirely sure that I agree. The core premise here isn’t actually anything new or revolutionary. This just seems like a bit of enthusiastic marketing zeal, which is forgivable.
For those of you who know horse racing well, you may have been able to get some idea of what The Diamond Racing System is about from the results. What I can say is that there are elements of studying form here, and there is also application to past races. The form studying part I can’t argue with. This is a tried and tested method of winning on the horses and you can’t say much fairer than that.
What I am always a little bit warier of is applying too much emphasis on past races. I know that this seems a bit contradictory because form is literally looking at past races for indication of likely performance. But the people I know who use form only have it as a part of the bigger picture. The main reason for doing this is the same reason for my concerns, it can be very easy to see patterns in past results that aren’t really there.
With all of that said (for what little it was worth), I will say that ultimately there is some merit to the approach of The Diamond Racing System. I have seen much worse examples come to market that have been based around some right old crap. Here, there is some footing in reality. I also have a lot of respect for the fact that the person behind the system actively encourages caution when you are trying this out. All of which counts for quite a lot.
What is the Initial Investment?
The Diamond Racing System is being sold for a one time cost of just £97 (although the sales material does seem to suggest that the pricing should have been £147 at some point). This seems to be quite pricey, and I will happily admit it isn’t cheap. But it is about in the ballpark of what you’d expect to pay for a betting system (albeit at the top end). Something that is noteworthy is that we are told that this pricing is a limited time offer (that is still available in August) with the “standard price” being £299. I don’t believe this last bit one iota.
Another thing that I unequivocally rate about The Diamond Racing System is that the service is offered with a full 60 day money back guarantee. This is backed up by the fact that it is sold through Clickbank, and again, the author is keen to highlight that this is available if you find that you aren’t able to make it work for you.
What is the Rate of Return?
Between April 2019 and the end of July 2021 the author of The Diamond Racing System claims that his selections have bagged him £44,776.80. This is based off £100 stakes which means that there’s some 447 points. That isn’t a bad run over the time, especially for a betting system. These results aren’t necessarily unbelievable, and I can see how this system could attain these kinds of results.
With that said, I don’t necessarily think that a lot of people who get started with The Diamond Racing System now will find that they hit these kinds of results. The fact of the matter is that we are told that the system was in development for 5 years. Even if you take the last 2 as a part of this, the creator has had 3 years extra to get these kinds of results nailed down.
Conclusion for The Diamond Racing System
When you’re looking at a betting system there are a few different things that I think need to be considered. Firstly, there is whether or not it actually works. Just outright, does it work. It’s surprising how often that happens. The second question is whether or not it is workable for people. Because I’ve seen some complex systems that do work, but the fact is that most people wouldn’t be able to make them work. And finally, is it worth the money?
On the first front. Does The Diamond Racing System actually work or not? The short answer to this is simple. Yes. Whilst I’m not entirely sold on the overall quality of this, I will happily concede the fact that the approach that is taken here is something that has merit. I can see how it works, I can see that it can work. So on the first front, I think that it’s fair to say that this is a pass.
The second question is whether or not The Diamond Racing System is workable for most people. This is another pass in my mind. The approach that is taken with all of this is really pretty simple. Something that I feel ultimately does end up counting against this a little bit. But the bottom line is this, I don’t think that most people will struggle to deal with the core premise of the system.
With that said, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you won’t struggle either. Now this isn’t entirely because of the method. The Diamond Racing System is based on rather straight forward approaches to betting that I have seen utilised elsewhere. The problem however is that whilst the ebook that you get covers most things, it doesn’t look too much at variables. This means that if you are struggling there isn’t much more to help you. As such, any problems ultimately just compound themselves.
Finally, this brings the question of whether or not The Diamond Racing System is worth the money. The short answer to this in my mind is that I’m not certain it is. Now this isn’t necessarily that it’s a terrible product. Like I’ve said, it works. It can work for people. But whenever I’m looking at something, I also have to look at alternatives that are on the market, and this is where things start to fall down.
At £97, this is a touch on the pricey side. It isn’t prohibitive, but it definitely isn’t cheap either. Importantly though, there are other products and services on the market that cost less, give you more for your money, and perform better. And that unfortunately puts a bit of a nail in the coffin of that last point. With better alternatives in the market for less money, I just don’t see how I can say that there is value for money in The Diamond Racing System.
Which brings me to my general final thoughts. I don’t necessarily think that The Diamond Racing System is a bad betting system. But I don’t think that it is good enough. Maybe if it were less expensive, it might be worth some more consideration. But it simply isn’t. It isn’t even like you’re necessarily paying for a betting system that is really unique.
Unfortunately, all of this means that I can’t really look to recommend The Diamond Racing System. To reiterate something I’ve said a few times, it isn’t that the system doesn’t have merit. It is just that it simply isn’t good enough in a competitive market.
