Dr. William Quirin is best-known for his book, Winning at the Races – Computer Discoveries in Thoroughbred Handicapping. The book focuses on impact values and presents statistical information for different racing conditions in horse racing. The book also explains how to calculate a horse’s speed during a race, especially the early part of the horse race.
His Quirin Speed Points are often used in many horse handicapping software programs. The higher the speed point, the more likely the horse will take the lead in a race contended William Quirin. Quirin’s career has mainly been focused in academia since the 1980s. He has been a mathematics professor at Adelphi University since 1981. He wrote another book published in 1992 about horse handicapping called Thoroughbred Handicapping: State of the Art. William Quirin applies his mathematical talents to the horse racing community with his own unique analysis and strategies.
