from Editors of the Daily Racing Form
In Bet With The Best, nine of the most respected names in North American thoroughbred handicapping come together to produce a compact yet comprehensive guide to horse race handicapping and betting in the modern age. Unlike many of the other books on handicapping which often have the look and feel of school textbooks, this book was a surprisingly easy and entertaining read. Each writer used examples, most of which came from stakes races in 2000 and the early part of 2001, to demonstrate how their handicapping theory is used in practice. You are quickly exposed to handicapping angles you may not have considered before, and soon realize that although the game may have gotten tougher to beat, there are still overlays to be had. You just need to be more creative in finding them. As was said in the introduction, "The sport is constantly changing, and your opponents are getting better. If you don't keep up with those changes, you'll get left behind." The writers in this book set out to prevent that from happening.
Rather than confuse the reader with one large combined effort, each chapter is an individual essay which addresses a very specific topic in the game of handicapping, written by the Daily Racing Form's specialist in that topic:
Chapter 1: Andrew Beyer describes strategies to be used in today's world of full card simulcasting and year round racing.
With this layout, it's like getting nine books in one, making it excellent value for your money. Whether you're new to the game or have been grinding it out for years, you will find "Bet with the Best" to be a very useful and welcome addition to your personal reference library.
