ENDORSEMENTS from some of the biggest names in the business

'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

"Rob Henie's reports are an invaluable resource for any handicapper regardless the level. The WCHR/ECHR are full of pertinent information to help bettors that is not found anywhere else. Whether you are playing contests on a daily basis or simply going to the track for a day of wagering, I highly recommend Rob's reports." 
Michael Beychok
2012 National Handicapping Champion (NHC) and all time leading contest money winner

"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 
Santa Anita Morning Line maker / Racing Historian

"It's not pretty darn good, it's great. I've been handicapping for almost 40 years, and I learn more from your narratives than i do from any other source. The picks are helpful, but without the insightful commentary, it wouldn't be nearly as valuable.
