US Racing Track King is a brand new to market tipster service which is being offered by tipster David Suarez. The service is operated by the Telegram Tipster stable and claims some very strong profits.
Introduction to US Racing Track King
It’s quite curious really just how many tipsters have appeared out of the woodwork who are experts on foreign horse racing. I have recently seen “professional” bettors who look at horse racing from Australia, to Dubai, and even covering Chilean horse racing. Which if I’m completely honest about, I didn’t even know was a thing. And frustratingly often, it seems like most of these “tipsters” seemingly didn’t up until UK horse racing stopped either.
All of this leads me to today’s offering, US Racing Track King. A tipster service that takes an incredibly niche approach to betting in the US. Now, I’ll talk about this in much more detail a little later, but David Suarez says that he exclusively provides tips for just 3 horse racing tracks in the US. I’ve heard of focusing your attention to ty and get an edge on the bookies, but that is really something else.
With that said, there are seemingly some strong looking results. And let’s be honest here. If US Racing Track King actually can deliver a profit, why does it matter if David Suarez is only betting on 3 tracks in the US? The short answer would mostly boil down to, it doesn’t. But all of that does make the assumption that the profits can be delivered on.
What Does US Racing Track King Offer?
There are a lot of things that ultimately make US Racing Track King quite interesting to look at. The fact of the matter is that whilst this is of course, a tipster service, there are a lot of unique elements that you really need to keep in mind if you are weighing this up. Because it is a very long way from a typical tipster experience.
Firstly, I want to start by talking about the logistical elements. Frankly, this is where I think that the large majority of differences lie. Now, as you would expect from a tipster who only looks at 3 race tracks in the US, US Racing Track King is a very long way from a daily tipster service.
Don’t get me wrong, there are tips put out often enough, but you will also see a lot of gaps too. These can range from a single day off, to gaps of five days between selections. We are also told that this is down to the selective nature of things (a point I will be picking up a little later).
Furthermore, the fact that David Suarez is based in the US means that the timing of tips is a bit different to what I believe most people are used to. Instead of receiving selections in the morning, you will typically receive them in the late afternoon. This is actually a bit of a boon for the “9-5” people out there.
Now, one of the things about US Racing Track King that is pretty much unique in the betting world is the involvement of Telegram Tipster. Selections are, of course, sent out directly via email. But they are also made available to your phone via the Telegram App (hence the name). This is all easy enough to set up and does offer some advantages, so fair play there.
In terms of the bets, things retain that sense of interest if I’m honest. Given everything that has been said so far, you would probably expect US Racing Track King to be a particularly low volume service. However, Telegram Tipster’s proofing shows that between the start of February and April, there were some 55 bets placed .This works out just a tad less than 1 per day.
As you would expect from anything horse racing related, there are of course limits on the markets that are available. The vast majority of bets that David Suarez advises are straight win bets, however, there are also a few each way bets on the longer shot.
Which brings me rather nicely to the odds that you will typically be backing at. You see, Telegram Tipster’s proofing shows all bets recorded to the start price. However, because of the time that David Suarez sends out selections, you will receive the best odds available at that time, and of course, you can increase the odds even further by getting in early.
By and large though, this isn’t something that is dealing with huge outsiders. For some context on this, at the time of writing, there have been 72 bets proofed. Of those, 2 have had start prices in double figures. In fact, the average start price has been just 3.57.
This leads me to the final stretch which is the more numbers based side of things. Specifically, the staking plan and the strike rate. And this is actually where things start to take a bit of a turn for the worst with US Racing Track King.
You see, the stakes that are advised range from anywhere from 2 points per bet, up to 5 points per bet. Honestly, those aren’t terribly high numbers, but they do add up. As such, this means that over the number of bets advised, you would have staked 217 points. That is a pretty significant number really. Especially since you have a recommended betting bank of 100 points.
And because of the strike rate for US Racing Track King, there is a lot of potential for a quite strong drawdown here too. You see, in the sales material, David Suarez and Telegram Tipster claim that the strike rate stands at 64%. However, since April started, this has shown a significant decline and the number currently stands at some 26 losing bets. Ultimately, this is still a reasonable strike rate.
With that said though, I find it to be quite telling that those previous results were all proofed before launch. This means that since Telegram Tipster actually started proofing live, there has been just one winning bet in eight.
How Does US Racing Track King Work?
There are a few elements that ultimately make up what US Racing Track King is. At the core of everything, we are told that David Suarez has worked in the horse racing industry for 20 years. During this time, he has been predominantly based at Gulfstream Park and Tampa Bay Downs.
This, we are told, has allowed him to make “working connections” with trainers and jockeys at these two racing events. Something which has been “invaluable to [his] betting career”. Now, that all makes a certain kind of sense I suppose. Do I believe these claims? Not necessarily. But at least things sort of add up.
What doesn’t seem to make much sense however is that the other race track that David Suarez specialises in is Turf Paradise in Phoenix, Arizona. An area that seemingly has nothing to do with his experience in Florida. It also isn’t something that is explained away.
The thing about all of this is that I can see how knowing a course can help you pick winners. And focusing on a very narrow range minimises the data that you work with which better helps you identify potential patterns. These are all proven things that really can work.
As such, it is very interesting to me that whilst this may be an element of the selection process, it isn’t really discussed. Honestly, all of this is just rather concerning to me. One gets the feeling that US Racing Track King is based around something that sounds good, rather than necessarily being good. A point that I think is somewhat underscored by the results.
What is the Initial Investment?
If you want to sign up to US Racing Track King, there are 3 different options available. The first of these is a monthly subscription. This is priced at £34 per month. However, for just a pound extra, you can sign up to quarterly subscription at £35. The payment does however re-bill at £70 every 3 months.
Finally, and representing the best possible value, you can sign up for 6 months at a cost of £60.This does of course mean however, that you also have the largest initial outlay. Something which can be very off putting with something like this.
It is worth noting that there is no money back guarantee or refund policy. We are simply told that if you aren’t happy, you can cancel at any time.
What is the Rate of Return?
The headlining number for US Racing Track King claims that you can turn £10 bets into £3,201. That is a massive number and is based on a £1,000 betting bank. However, this simply isn’t the full story at all. In fact, I am actually quite sceptical about these numbers.
The actual profit at the time of writing stands at 149.6 points. However, you have to keep in mind that these are to those higher stake bets. As such, you can very easily round this number down to around 12-17 points per month. But honestly, even with Telegram Tipster’s proofing, I don’t believe that David Suarez will get you close to this kind of profit.
Conclusion for US Racing Track King
Normally when I come to write a conclusion, I try to see some of the positives in a service. Because there are normally some redeeming features. Even a small profit is still a profit. However, in the case of US Racing Track King I have really struggled in this regard. Which is rather disappointing because I believe that there is a lot here that could be right.
So, first things first I want to talk a little bit about why exactly it is that I find this to be so questionable. Because really, it should be a pretty straight forward winner, right? There is a profit, it isn’t prohibitively expensive, and given everything that is going on you can actually place bets.
Now the bit that I’m not particularly enamoured with is that profit potential. I can see how 149.6 points in 2 months looks good. Even with the stakes involved. But the fact of the matter is that US Racing Track King just doesn’t seem to actually be winning. Since live proofing started, there has been just one win in 12 bets. A record that is a bit naff if I’m blunt.
Arguably, you could say that this is simply a bit of a bad run, and you could well be right. It really could be just that. In my opinion though, it seems to me more like those past results have come form back testing or perhaps… exaggerated, shall we say. I’ll happily hold my hands up if I’m wrong, but it isn’t uncommon for Telegram Tipster’s services to have this same pattern.
On top of this, there is also the frustrating fact that there is no information provided about what the selection process actually entails. I will always stand by the fact that it is much easier to follow a tipster through a rough patch when you actually know that they have a working system behind everything.
And this is the area that is most disappointing to me because I like the idea of a super focused tipster service that focuses on a niche area of horse racing. I genuinely believe that David Suarez could well know more than the bookies and as such, US Racing Track King would be a very good looking option. But I don’t really buy into a vague statement about inside information.
What I certainly wouldn’t recommend anybody do is blindly invest their betting bank into bets that have no tangible selection process. But that is really what David Suarez and Telegram Tipster are asking you to do here.
When all of this is combined with the fact that US Racing Track King isn’t exactly cheap… Well, it just doesn’t come together into something in which there are many positives. As much as this may well have performed once, what I have to be realistic about is what you are facing now.
The short answer to that is a quite pricey, unsubstantiated tipster service that is losing money at quite a rate(edit: at the time of finishing this review, US Racing Track King is down 18 points over 10 bets). That to me just isn’t something that suggests sustainability, and it definitely doesn’t suggest that it is worth nearly £35 per month. You can get access to some much better options for that kind of money.
In case you hadn’t figured it out by this point, this is one that I would recommend avoiding. I really wish that this was able to deliver… Well, any of the promise that is so frustratingly there. But the fact of the matter is that it doesn’t. And it really is that black and white.
