Ellis Starr, also known as "Ubercapper", has been studying horse racing and handicapping for over 35 years. Ellis fully understands all aspects of handicapping and wagering and was one of the first in his profession to publish his selections on the Internet, becoming an immediate hit with his philosophy of "teaching people to fish" while at the same time "giving them fish." Ellis does this by sharing his insights and the methodology he uses as part of the top-quality selections and analysis he creates.

Ellis also puts his money where his mouth is by participating in Handicapping Tournaments, recently winning the Derby Wars $15,000 Big Game contest. In addition, 2012 marks the seventh straight year Ellis qualified to join an elite group to qualify for the Keeneland Tournament of Champions.

Ellis is the National Racing Analyst for Equibase, The Thoroughbred Industry's Official Source for Racing Information, writing a widely distributed "Race of the Week" story covering the biggest races in North America. Ellis' articles have been published in Horseplayer magazine and in Australia's Practical Punting magazine as well as on the web site of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association.

Additionally, Ellis appears regularly on Sam Spear's "At the Track" weekly radio broadcast on KNBR in San Francisco as well as the Drake and Zeke show on 98.1 The Max in Memphis. His selections and analysis for races around the country can be found at the web sites of the major advance deposit wagering companies in North America - Twinspires, TVG, Xpressbet and Keeneland Select as well as Equibase and TrackMaster. Ellis' insights can also be found via twitter @ubercapper.

With a tremendous passion for helping fans of all levels to have a great day at the races, Ellis regularly assists groups attending the races, helping fans of all levels to become comfortable and familiar with racing and wagering while at the same time helping them to cash a few tickets, adding value and appeal to events by giving fans their own personal handicapper for the day.
