The Power of Teamwork & Collaboration

The Stabler provides selections based on our home-grown speed ratings, analysis of the form book and then ensuring what we perceive to be the percentage or probability of winning the race against the offered starting price of the prospective selection.

What we think contributes to our ongoing success more than anything else is our collaboration and teamwork. Although selections are provided predominantly by Jim, the ongoing maintenance of our speed-ratings continues to provide consistency to our results and customers. The work in maintaining accurate speed-ratings is quite extensive, analysing the racing-post, published times and observational comments regarding horse-form. 

It is this attention to detail through the collaboration of the team that continues to provide the ongoing service that we proudly call The Stabler.




























TheStabler consists of a team of three dedicated individuals that provide the Horse-form analysis, maintenance of our speed-rating database,  selections & service.

We are happy to be acquainted.
