OVERVIEW OF THE SERIES
Many people voiced their opinions on which influential horse handicapping authors they would like to explore, and I have developed the series to explore these authors’ theories, ideas, and how they shaped handicapping in general. More importantly, how the concepts can be applied today.
Here are some of the authors we will explore:
- Tom Ainslie Ainslie’s Complete Guide to Thoroughbred Handicapping 1968
- Frederick Davis Percentages and Probabilities 1973
- Andy Beyer Picking Winners
- William Quirin Winning at the Races 1979
- Howard Sartin Yellow Manual 1983
- Tom Brohamer Brohamer Model 1985
- Tom Brohamer Modern Pace Handicapping 1991
- Tom Hambleton and Dick Schmidt Pace Makes the Race 1991
- Dick Mitchell Common Sense Handicapping 1993
- Dave Schwartz Percentages and Probabilities 2012
In the series, we will go over concepts and ideas that may have been missed in the original readings. Please note: These are not Book Reviews! These are concepts which have merit today – perhaps in a different context to what the original author intended.
CHAPTER 1: Howard Sartin’s Yellow Manual
The first podcast of the series will explore Howard Sartin’s Yellow Manual from 1983. Even if you were never exposed to the Sartin Materials, you will enjoy this lesson.
