Handicapper’s Outline is a collection of the author’s experiences with and thoughts on the greyhound dog races, some comments on other handicap systems, clarification of commonly referenced dog race handicap terminology, a layout of the grade system for all known dog tracks currently in operation, and the presentation of a simplified dog race handicap system with past performance practices to enhance your handicap skills.

I’m originally from Kansas. I am a US Marine Corps Vietnam veteran (Semper Fi) and a retired law enforcement officer with twenty-five years of service. I relocated to Washington State three months after I retired, and I currently reside there. I am a first-time author. I was introduced to greyhound dog races in 1983, and I traveled on several occasions to Bluffs Run greyhound dog track in Council Bluffs, Iowa before the Woodlands greyhound dog track began operation in September of 1989 in Basehor, Kansas. In 1992, I placed all recorded information on greyhound dog races in a file cabinet folder, and it remained there for the next seventeen years. In 2009, I began my efforts to develop a greyhound dog race handicap system in earnest. My ultimate goal was to develop a simplified handicap system that would enhance every greyhound dog race enthusiast’s enjoyment of the sport.
