No serious horseplayer should be without Beyer on Speed, the third jewel in Andrew Beyer's literary triple crown. Beyer shows the handicapper how to make his Beyer Speed Figures the focal point of a wagering strategy for pursuing spectacular profits by relating speed figures to pace, track bias, and track conditions. He helps bettors utilize new opportunities for picking winners, such as video replays and a successfully structured multirace ticket, whether betting online, on the phone, or at the track.
This invaluable book on wagering includes a new preface by the author, focusing on the role of simulcasting and the internet in modern-day handicapping. Written in Beyer's entertaining, rapid-fire prose, Beyer on Speed is a must-read for every bettor, from the beginner to the most advanced player.
