What a crock! May 22, 2008
Once again, new book with nothing new. Don't let the title fool you. This book does not tell you how to bet on the Derby. It simply rehashes old information. What a giant disappointment!
Great for novice; Nothing new for seasoned player. May 2, 2008
I picked this up to see if it had any different approaches to handicapping the Derby. The author seems genuine in wanting to help someone select a horse and make a wager on it. If you are looking for a basic book on handicapping the Derby, check it out.
Save your money Apr 21, 2008
This book was a complete waste of money and time. It took about an hour to read and was almost all fluff. The author used plenty of statistical data but never explained how and why to use it. He left the interpretation of the data up to the reader. A typical example of this would be: "Look at all the Beyer figures below. Do you see a pattern?" Uh, no, not really. Every single chapter was like this. I bought this book in hopes of gleaning a little insight into the upcoming Derby. What a mistake that was. Save your time and money and don't make the same mistake I made. Pass on this one.
Buy only if you don't know what an exacta is ... Apr 16, 2008
I could have written this book in a half and hour ... and since you clicked on a horse racing book, so could you! Very, very, very basic stuff and I'm sure you already know almost all of it. I am a gigantic Daily Racing Form fan (the publication and some of their other books) so this isn't a smear review. Use that $10 or $15 you were considering on using for this book for your wagers at the track.
