On the wrong horse?

I have a question that I hope you can answer. I have a very large database of
horse races in North America. I am investigating ways to use this to identify
patterns that may be used to predict the winner of a future race. Towards this
goal I have been studying Nueral Networks theory, as there are several
commercial horse handicapping products on the market that say they use it to
pick the winning horses.

My question is; can fuzzy logic by itself be used to predict the outcome of
an event like a horse race and/or in combination with neural networks, or am I
on the wrong horse?
