*DEL MAR FALL (including the 2017 Breeders Cup)

"If you play the races from Southern California, check out the West Coast Handicapping Report (WCHR), it's full of great information everyday and believe me, I use it myself."

-Bob Baffert TRIPLE CROWN and Hall of Fame Trainer

"West Coast Handicapping Report (WCHR), put together with exceptional dedication by Rob Henie. His handicapping expertise is first-rate, but of equal import are the stats he provides that give insights into the daily Southern California racing scene. Probably the best daily report in California, since Ron Cox and Don Montillon's Northern California Track Record."

-Excerpt from the classic Steve Davidowitz book, BETTING THOROUGHBREDS IN THE 21st CENTURY

"Successful handicappers combine intelligence, patience, discipline and roll-up-your-sleeves hard work to thrive in the difficult world of thoroughbred racing. There is no quick fix or magic elixir that turns a hopeless loser into a successful player. But what can be of great service is to read the work of Rob Henie, in the East Coast Handicapping Report (ECHR) and West Coast Handicapping Report (WCHR).  Through tireless study of replays, grasping successful workout patterns, and understanding the intention of trainers, Henie's reports are written in a clear, concise, and logical way AND you will learn about the nuances of the game. Personally, I highly recommend his work and would encourage all others to give it a read. I have and I'm glad I did."

-Bob Neumeier 20-plus years as TV analyst for NBC Sports

"In my view, it certainly behooves anyone who wagers on the races at Gulfstream Park in the wintertime or the New York tracks during the rest of the year to read the ECHR. Those who follow the WCHR, the sister publication that covers racing in Southern California, have long known that Rob Henie not only does a terrific job in picking winners, he is adept at finding winners who go off at handsome odds. That is not easy. And best of all, I think, is if you read the ECHR, you not only find out WHO Henie likes, you find out WHY he likes a horse."

Jon White HRTV commentator, simulcast host, and Santa Anita's morning-line maker

“ECHR -  It’s not pretty darn good, it’s great!!  I’ve been handicapping for almost 40 years.  I learn more from your narratives than I do from any other source.  The picks are helpful, but without the insightful narratives it wouldn’t be nearly as valuable.”

- Bill Shurman 12-Time NHC Qualifier

HOLD A SHARP EDGE OVER YOUR FELLOW HORSEPLAYERS with the WCHR, as well as the ECHR (Saratoga,Gulfstream, Belmont) www.eastcoasthorseracing.com

Since 2002, the WCHR has been known for DOUBLE DIGIT WINNERS and FIRST TIMERS, combined with Handicapping Lessons in each report!


LAST MEET: *Our TOP PICK at the recently concluded DEL MAR FALL MEET, showed a POSITIVE 10% ROI on ALL TOP PICKS at the Meet, something the WCHR and ECHR are known for!

Invest in the package that works for you, and we'll do the rest, emailing you the report the night before the races.


*Sharp Daily Analysis of all races
*Handicapping Lessons
*X Out Runners
*Positive Notes (gallop out info, etc.)
*Negative Notes (gallop out info, etc.)
*First Timer Notes

Many of you are likely aware of the reputation of both the WCHR and ECHR with regard to first timers. Our handicapper Rob Henie doesn't use ANY clocker reports. He relies on years of breaking the code with trainers on both coasts, understanding their patterns to determine whether a horse is live at first asking. 

During the Winter and recently concluded Spring Meet at Santa Anita, there were of 57 debut winners and the WCHR had 39 of the 57 as either our TOP PICK or SECOND CHOICE.
