Overview

Here is the third edition of the most complete, comprehensive and reliable guide to handicapping and understanding thoroughbred racing. Through twenty best-selling years, Ainslie's Complete Guide to Thoroughbred Racing has taught generations of racing fans how to become expert handicappers and pick winners at the track consistently. Now, in this all-new third edition, Ainslie turns his celebrated wit, clarity and no-nonsense realism to the latest trends and changes in thoroughbred racing.

He shows how any handicapper - whether neophyte or veteran - can improve results by taking advantage of new technology like instant video replays of races, computerized pre-race displays of probably pari-mutual prices and increasingly detailed Daily Racing Form past-performance records.

Ainslie warns you against the oversimplified home computer handicapping programs and explains how tenient anti-drugging regulations and lax enforcement have changed the sport. As always, Ainslie doesn't just give the rules of handicapping; he explains how the various components of expert handicapping relate to one another. And he emphasizes that it is less important to know all the rules of handicapping than it is to understand the principles from which they derive. This third edition also contains some classic Ainslie features.

This guide has taught generations of racing fans how to become expert handicappers and pick winners at the track consistently.

    My favorite book on Handicapping

    Reading for the third time. As a race track bettor in a cold weather climate I take the winter off to review films, forms and read various books. The only accessable tracks are Woodbine, Fort Erie and Finger Lakes. Ainslie's comments on making money at the tracks most bettors do not care to invest time in because of 'cheap Horses' is right on the money. The book is a logical progression of information that the most experienced handicapper will find extremely useful.
