Horse Racing: Gamble & Win is based on the author’s 25-plus years in gambling and betting on thoroughbred horse races. He has bet on horses in the:

• U.S
• Canada
• Mexico
• England
• Germany
• The Middle and Far East

He has bet at tracks and race books, and has been computer betting for the last dozen years. He has bet and won on fast surfaces, on turf, and on wet or even muddy tracks. If you want to bet to win, follow the system that has worked for over 25 years and you can bet like a pro too.

It is easy to understand and easy to follow. Betting on the horses becomes clear and easy when you follow the system. It will not automatically show a profit on any one specific day. It may even show red figures for a few days. But over a minimum of say 35-40 races it will be in the black profit column. And you will be able to gamble and win at horse racing regularly.

The author’s records show a consistent long term Return on Investment (ROI) of about 1.24. That means that every dollar bet, or gambled, has returned a profit of 24%.

Immediately. In cash.

Watching and wagering on beautiful thoroughbred horses is one of the world’s most popular sporting activities. By using this Special Report, readers will be able to gamble and win.

Chapters include information on:

• Betting on the horses
• Gambling, winning, and following the system
• How to pick races to bet
• What odds you need to make a (good) bet
• How to bet to win, place, or exotic
• Computer betting
• How much to bet: Using the effective Kelly Criterion formula
• The types of races (maiden, claimer, handicap, etc.)
• Importance of jockeys, trainers, weights, equipment changes
• Forms to use for your horse racing notes

Horse Racing: Gamble & Win is a proven and profitable system for betting on the horses.

Meet the Author

Michael J. Haskett started his career as a bush pilot flying in Canada´s Arctic. After a number of years flying commercially, he followed his entrepreneurial spirit and turned in his wings to become a full-time business owner. Over the past 3 decades he has established an extensive and varied sports and business background.

For many years he has also been a fan of horse racing, provided that a reasonable financial return can be earned in addition to the pleasure of seeing magnificent animals race. For almost as many years as a fan he has been able to keep his numbers in the black column. This current book details a complete mechanical system which can be easily put into practice by both neophytes and more experienced bettors. The author has personally bet at tracks in many countries, and now on the internet bets regularly at tracks in more than 18 countries. He is at work on a more specialized horseracing book for experienced bettors, under the working title "Vegas Pro Secrets". It should be ready for publication soon.

In addition to his duties/pleasures with the ponies, the author has developed, owned and operated a number of successful companies, was a business consultant for small to mid-size businesses, published information books and business documents ranging from web sites to extensive company operations manuals, and wrote (and marketed) a bestselling novel.

    ¿Title: Horse Racing: Gambling to Win

    Author: Michael J. Haskett

    ¿Genre: Non-fiction


    Okay, so this is my first review for a non-fiction book. The writing in Horse Racing: Gambling to Win, written by Michael J. Haskett, was
     easy enough to follow. The only problem I faced was that I didn't know several of the terms used in the book (I admit I don't gamble so
     a lot of terms were unfamiliar to me.) For example, I had to look up what the difference is between betting at a regular track, OTB or
    online. But other than that, I found this book to be an enjoyable read.

    Everything in the book was straight-forward and I'm sure if you even understand just the most basic terms in horse racing betting, you
     will find this book immensely helpful and easy to understand. There were also formulas provided to help determine how you should
    bet. I thought that was a really good idea to include in the book since it can be directly applied. Haskett walks you through all the steps
     with the formula, so math challenged people (like me) can easily follow along.

    What I would've liked to see included in Horse Racing is a glossary for the terms new gamblers probably wouldn't have understood
     had they picked up this book to read. 

          *Easy to understand (provided you know all the terms)
         *very brief but gets to the point--there's no beating around the bush

    ¿     *Didn't have a glossery
