Reviews - What do customers think about The Original Thoroughbred Times Racing Almanac 2008 (Original Thoroughbred Times Racing Almanac)?
Great addition to your bookcase Jan 27, 2008
Thoroughbred Times' Racing Almanac is a must have for any horse racing fan. A completely comprehensive overlook of the past year and the history (statwise)of horseracing.
More Information Makes The Almanac A Winner Nov 27, 2007
There is not a Thoroughbred commissioner's office or one easy place to research material on national and international racing and breeding. That is what makes the 2008 version of the almanac essential, especially since it has expanded to nearly 1,000 pages and contains additional information sections.
The year in review goes from January 2006 to June 2007, with outstanding analysis on the state of the industry and a wealth of information on the Breeders' Cup & graded stakes results. But with additions means some deletions and brief histories on legendary tracks like Hialeah Park and Sportman's Park have been removed from the Racetracks of North America section.
What is needed is one or two inserts of color photographs from the year or previous seasons in the publication's vast archives. The almananc would benefit greatly by having it more visually appealing.
No matter if you are a casual fan, handicapper or media member, the almanac will be the prime resource for information throughout the year.
