A 30-year veteran of the harness racing handicapping wars wrote this book for both beginner and expert player. Twelve chapters cover trainer angles; determination of shape; class; post position; the pace; the driver; track conditions and sizes; gualifying races; distance races; open stretch racing; two tier racing; equipment changes; pacers vs. trotters in handicapping. He discusses shippers; false favorites; trifecta plays (nine horse fields on half-mile tracks); wagering procedures (from straight betting to the exotics). A major section called Race Analysts covering 40 pages uses past performance summaries from SportsEye and charts with a step-by-step look and discussion of horses, angles, factors worth considering and remembering for future situations. One unique section devotes itself to Handicapping Tournaments. An excellent and highly scarce resource. Trade paperback, 221 pages, size 8 1/2" x 11". Good condition with moderate wear; no prior owner handwriting or text marking, no smoke or other unpleasant odor. [5252-a2217] Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 005252
