Product Reviews
Eight leading thoroughbred handicappers, their theories and ideas are spotlighted. Andy Beyer is the leadoff hitter with a section on simulcasting wagering. He explains the importance of tracking shippers and establishing whether track bias exists (as it did in a recent Breeders' Cup for virtually the entire card) and isolating trainer patterns.... Tom Brohamer covers basic running styles and combination of styles, a format for pace analysis and presents ideas on how to separate contenders .... Steven Crist follows with a chapter on value. He looks at probability and odds, competition, and using multiple bets to improve your prices .... Steve Davidowitz offers advice on bias, trainers, and key races while Dave Litfin submits ideas on record keeping, which should include notes on trips, factions, track profiles, and trainers. James Quinn, author of many great books writes about class, maiden races, nonwinner allowance and so on up to stakes races, reviews sucker bets, betting turf races, and claiming races. European racing writer Alan Shuback offers material on horses training in Great Britain, France and Ireland, then follows with an explanation of the types of European races one might encounter (handicaps included), while presenting material on handicaps, relative weights, and group races. He offers handicapping tips regarding Timeform ratings, track conditions, undulating, straight and training courses, time, rating the racecourses in Britain, France, Ireland, Germany and Italy, all-weather racing surfaces, turf to dirt as a factor, and foreign travel. Lauren Stich, an expert on pedigree and breeding, discusses those subjects including surface and distance preference, class and pedigree profiles. She presents valuable ideas on betting turf races, the 'hidden-turf factor' betting springs, and freshman sires. The book's final section by Mike Watchmaker, focuses on stakes races, including the biggest races like the Triple Crown and the Breeder's Cup Day. The book is packed with past performance and results examples to help explain or illuminate each expert's concepts or ideas. Truly a must-have title for any serious horseplayer's library. 246 Pages Hardbound 2001
