ANDREW BEYER thoroughly revolutionized handicapping when he created his “Beyer Speed Figures,” a measure of how fast a horse has run in a given race, and an indispensable tool for horseplayers. Making the necessary calculations to develop a set of figures for each horse in each race was too time-consuming for most horseplayers, so in 1992 the Daily Racing Form commissioned Beyer and his associates to provide his speed figures for every horse competing in North America. Beyer has been a columnist for the Washington Post since 1978, and contributes regularly to the Daily Racing Form. He is considered one of the leading experts on horse racing.

Mr. beyer unleashes horse racing to its fullest form,the man is a expert,that anyone can learn from his colorful stories. thanks andy.
I am a horse player from the U.K. and bought this book the late 90's. It changed my life as a gambler and despite it's obvious bias towards american racing i would not hesitate to recommend Beyer on Speed to any British punter particularly those with an interest in All Weather racing. I have read this book so many times the print is fading off the page!! If i met Beyer i would fall at his feet and hail him the greatest! If any other 'Beyer-ites' out there wish to e-mail me with any thoughts or views on racing in particular speed figures do so on email@example.com
