Sgt Howard reviews Smart Racing Trader

Hi Bloggers,

Sgt Howard here you will usually find me over on lay the odds.   This is my first review on BST.  My name is Howard and I’m 38 years old, live in the North West and have 20+ years betting experience.  I have always taken a keen interest in Betting particularly Horse Racing.  I only recently turned Professional this year.  I have plenty of experience in both Backing, Laying and Trading, but Trading represents my main source of income now.

Anyway on to the Introduction for Smart Racing Trader.  In case you don’t know these strategies comes from the same collaborators of All By the Book, Golden Key Method, Betfair ATM, and Pro Betfair Trader.  All these systems / strategies having previously passed reviews with ABTB receiving the maximum rating.   Therefore I’m very much looking forward to reviewing SRT.


Smart Racing Trader currently costs £69.95,  There is no refunds or trial periods,  though this has to be the case because unlike some other betting products these are strategies with nothing tangible to return.

The strategies

So what do you get for your money.  Well Smart Racing Trader is two rule based strategies.  The rules appear very straight forward and easy to follow but of course I’ll be able to tell you more when I have been using these strategies for some time.   Both these strategies are to be applied on UK Horse Racing only.   Although I don’t think you’ll require assistance to operate these, assistance is offered by the Author and email address provided.   The strategies whilst very straight forward appear to have sound logic behind them as to why they should be profitable long-term.

System 1 Smart Sequencer Trading Strategy.

This involves monitoring the first race of the day.  This strategy will produce up to four trades a day.  Some days there won’t be any trades and it is advised it involves up to a maximum of an hours work.  This strategy can only be applied on week days, no weekend or bank holiday betting.   It involves backing first and then laying to trade out.  You wouldn’t need lots of trading experience to follow this strategy.  Trading entry and exit points are clearly advised.  There are video tutorials in any case showing it in action.

System 2 National Hunt Flat Trading Strategy.

As the title suggests this strategy bets on NH Flat races only.  It involves monitoring NH Flat race markets close to the off.   It involves backing first and then laying off to trade out.  It is advised up to a maximum of 30 mins will be required to follow this strategy.  This strategy can be operated on week days, weekends and bank holidays.  Trading entry and exit points are clearly advised.  Again there are video tutorials if required but it is a very simple strategy.

To operate these strategies you’ll need:

  • To be able to bet weekdays and be prepared to spend up to a maximum of an hour a day to operate both systems.
  • Have a Betfair account.

It’s also strongly advised that you have access to Trading software e.g. Fairbot, Bet Angel, Geekstoy, Bet Trader Evo etc.  For the purpose of this trial I will be using Evo (in turbo mode since I use this for my own trading).  The seller states they think you can use Betfair for system one but advises something like one of the above for System 2 ideally for ease.

The initial review will last 56 Betting Days.  Which can be reviewed as we go along if there are a lot of non betting days.

Staking Plan and Betting Balance

There is no advised staking plan but the sales page does state you can operate this system from a fairly small betting bank.  With this strategy the exit point of your trade is clearly managed and there will never be a case when the full stake is at full risk.   With this in mind I will operate a 1000 pt Bank with a level stake of 100 pts per trade for both strategies.

Review updates

I intend to do daily / or every two day updates during the review.

Finally I just thought it worth adding that with any trading strategies it is fair to say results from person to person (both following the same strategy at same time) will always differ.  Although this will always be the case, having read through these strategies due to the simplistic nature of them, I think it is fair to say my results should reasonably accurately reflect the effectiveness of the system during the review period.

    @ray Lindley:

    Hi Ray,

    As I stated in my Introduction there is no advised staking plan with SRT which is why I am using my own. He may well be using a higher percentage of his betting bank than my 1/10th per bet, but this is individual preference.
    Personally I think 1/10th of a betting bank is plenty to deal with worst case scenarios.

    Sgt Howard.

  • ray Lindley says:

    Im a bit confused .Michael shows results that he doubles his bank in just over a month.He maintains he uses a bank of 500 units and says he has a stop loss strategy.I have had a look at his betfair account statement and I see although he as a good strike he sometimes as a loss of over 100 units.I presume he is using a similar staking plan to yours and not using his whole 500 units on each trade Could you clarify his staking plan is similar to yours (100 unit stop loss is quite scary )

  • Ian says:

    Someone earlier said this is a con. That was really harsh. I got my key straight away but there can be a problem if the paypal email address is different from the one used. I emailed Michael and had a respinse within 20 minutes.
    Also on system 2 the other day, I had one that was 7.2 down to 4.6, so for now at least I cant see why anyone would say this is a con. Give the review a chance.

    @Geoff Dilks:

    Sorry to hear of your difficulty Geoff. I will try to help you get registered.

    Firstly check the email you entered into the software – was it correct?

    If it was, check your spam folder in case the reply is in there.

    The registration process is more or less automatic, as far as I know. So, as long as your email address was correct, then the code should come through ok.

    I’m not sure if you can correct your email address and apply again.

    If you entered your email address correctly, then email me at and I’ll contact Steve Davis on your behalf to help sort it out.

    @Geoff Dilks:

    As far as I’m aware registration key’s are sent within 24 to 48hrs so I would check with the vendor that it has gone to correct email address.

  • Geoff Dilks says:

    I bought the system a couple of weeks ago & am still waiting for the registration key for activation. There has been no reply to my e-mails on the matter, so I think I have done my money!

    Hi Bonscott

    I reviewed Pro Betfair Trader here with a 3 star pass.

    Although Smart Racing is by the same author, the two systems are VERY different.

    To call either of them a “con” is extreme and unfair in my opinion.

    Fortunately we don’t rush to hasty decisions on our review sites. We wait to see how the systems actually perform in real life.

    I’ve tested out Smart Racing myself, before the review started, and it certainly merited further testing.

    Let’s see what happens during the review. I would certainly advise holding onto your money for a while to see how it does over a period of time. Remember, we test out systems so that you don’t have to!

    dont waste your money, its a con

  • Luigi says:

    I also have already bought this system and quite liked it in the beginning, but have been struggling lately with not so many opportunities to trade system 1 and choosing wrong selections for system 2, so there is indeed an element of judgement and experience when trading horses. Looking forward to the review

  • Sgt Howard says:

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for your comments. I understand what your saying here, there is always an element of judgement when trading on markets in the manner of system 2 (can’t say any more as unfair on the vendors). I will have the use of Evo to help me make such decisions and I have a reasonable amount of trading experience so will have to take this into account. I will also report how easy I found it coming to decisions. Your welcome to compare notes with me post trades.

    Regards Sgt


  • Ian says:

    Hi Sgt Howard. I have already purchased this system and it does look promising. Just a point though, on system 2 there is an element of judgement at the moment of decision. A couple of times I have made the wrong choice. I am interested to see how well you fare in your own judgements and any tips you can give making the best decision.
