The article discusses handicapping in selected horse racing events. In certain horse racing events, a handicap is applied by letting horses carry weights. The objective of handicapping is to assign various weights to competing horses so that theoretically, they come out evenly matched. This allow owners to enter their lightweight horses and compete with much heavier counterparts which in turn stimulates more betting. Handicapping also prevents an outstanding horse from winning often.
