How to obtain RDSS2, get started and learn to use it.

**
First,
please read all the posts in this page
,
and please also read the other posts in this RDSS Information Forum, especially Video Tutorials.

While there is no longer a free 30 day evaluation of RDSS, there is a full 60 day money back guarantee. There is also a 100% satisfaction guarantee with TrackMaster data. Please see details further below.

After making the RDSS Subscription payment, please send an email to support@SartinMethodology.com requesting access to the RDSS2 Software Download. In your email, please state your Full Name and your PaceandCap User ID. P
lease register here if you are not yet a PaceandCap member. After you receive an email back confirming that you now have access to the RDSS Software Download (normally within an hour or so during the day, but maybe within 24 hours), please click on the following link:

Download RDSS 2.0 Software

(Current Version: RDSS2 Beta2.6-02)

Note: RDSS runs on computers which are running Windows, not on iPad or Android devices. You can run RDSS on a Mac if you set up a Windows environment on it.

RDSS2 TrackMaster Data

RDSS2 TrackMaster Data

To use RDSS2, you need a TrackMaster account with a RDSS Data plan, which also includes a 'Pay-as-you-go' type data plan which does not cost you anything until you download current race data. You are also welcomed to use the several free RDSS Example databases provided, and/or download current race data from TrackMaster.


You use the RDSS software itself (the RDSS Data Centre module) to download the data from TrackMaster - you don't download data via your browser. You can download either Past Performance data only, or Past Performances plus Result Charts data (the 'Bundle' plan). If you wish to switch between these two data plans, just sign up for both and tell RDSS in the Registration Section which type of data you wish to download. (Note: please read this description of the limitations using PP+Charts data in the current version of RDSS, here)

Here's the TrackMaster link to sign up for RDSS Past Performance data only: https://www.trackmaster.com/cgi-bin/register.cgi?rdp If you already have a TrackMaster or Equibase account, just use the form to add a RDSS data plan to your list of TrackMaster data subscriptions.

(Note: if you buy 20 cards/month, the price per card is the same as the traditional TMPP files used by the older DOS Validator, Synthesis and Speculator Sartin programs: $1.50/card)

Here's the TrackMaster link to sign up for RDSS Past Performance plus Result Chart data ( 'the Bundle'): https://www.trackmaster.com/cgi-bin/register.cgi?rdb

Size:  11.2 KB

(Note: if you buy unlimited Past Performances plus Result Charts, the cost is significantly cheaper than buying even Result Charts alone from TrackMaster.)

A note about TrackMaster's billing method: if you choose Regular or Unlimited plans, you are re-billed automatically each period (e.g. monthly) on the day of the month when you signed up, until you cancel it.

Note: in order to register RDSS and download data, you must first set up a RDSS TrackMaster data account. If you need assistance with your TrackMaster account, or have questions about pricing or how to fill out the web form, you can always call TrackMaster Customer Service at 1 800 334-3800 (8am - 6pm PST) and tell them you need to set up an account for RDSS data. (Jim, Jerry, Greg, Craig, Dave et al - friendly folks!)

TrackMaster guarantees that you will be satisfied with their data used in RDSS! If you decide to not continue with RDSS, and if you were not satisfied with the data you bought, contact TrackMaster and ask for a full refund within the first 30 days, no questions asked.

RDSS2 Subscription Pricing


The annual RDSS software subscription fee is US$150, paid via PayPal, which also enables you to use most credit cards such as VISA, MasterCard, Amex. The annual subscription fee covers all updates, tech and customer support.

If you are not completely satisfied with RDSS you can request a refund within the first 60 days, no questions asked (though I would appreciate any feedback). You are welcomed to use several free example databases included with the software, or download new ones regularly available.

If you subscribe to an Unlimited TrackMaster data plan for any 6 months during the year (i.e. not the Pay-as-you-go, not the 20 cards per month, but Unlimited) then you don't need to pay the annual $150 software subscription fee the subsequent year.

Please Note: as a thank you to current Subscribers who renew their subscriptions during 2016, the renewal rate is $150 for 18 months (i.e. the same rate as the previous 7 years).

When you are ready, please click on the Subscription link below.
RDSS2 reminds you when your Subscription Renewal is within 30 days, and you will also be contacted again by email when it is time to renew.

RDSS Tutorials and Educational Materials

RDSS Video Tutorials & Seminars. Here is a link to the collection of RDSS Videos:

Newer: www.rdss2.com/videos-tutorials
Older: www.PaceandCap.com/rdssvideos

This is a good way to get an orientation about downloading data, navigating the handicapping screens, selecting contenders, pacelines and analyzing the various readout screens for good wager decisions.

Sartin Methodology Basics using RDSS, with Bill Varone. Here are some links to some previous articles by long time student and teacher of the Sartin Methodology, Bill Varone, taking us on a tour of the applied Methodology using RDSS tools, along with some explanations of factors and procedure, right from the Follow Up and Doc Sartin: http://paceandcap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5297

RDSS Version Release Notes

Please read the software Release Notes Topics issued with each new version of RDSS over the past few years - elsewhere in this RDSS Information Forum.These will give you an idea of the different capabilities which have gradually been added to the software.

RDSS2 Frequently Asked Questions: www.rdss2.com/faq


Sartin Methodology Reference Library

All 88 issues of The Follow Up bi-monthly journals of The Sartin Methodology (the 'bible' of the Methodology), plus many older manuals, various seminar audio files from the 1990’s and some videos are all available online for a serious education in various aspects of the Methodology. The Sartin Library forum link and access passwords are available to all registered Pace and Cap members.


The Match Up Reference materials

The Match Up - although it certainly does not require RDSS or any software to practice this handicapping approach, there are many valuable lessons taught by Jim ‘The Hat’ Bradshaw and Richie Pizzicara in the ‘Hat Check’ Forum, where you will also see RDSS used as a part of the decision making process:
www.PaceandCap.com/matchup

Here is a very useful compilation of excerpts from the Match Up Form in one (large PDF document: ~ 15 Mb):

The Match Up - an approach using adjusted data readouts from RDSS (by Richie Pizzicara):
