About the Author:

Along with being published in HorsePlayer Magazine and Practical Punter, Prentice Mannetter has been inside the horse racing game for almost 20 years ago. Over the years he's been able to learn from some of the sharpest players in the game and shares those successful tips and methods in his new book.


"....a must-read by any serious player of the game."

Over the last several years, Daily Racing Form has ramped up their book division, DRF Press, and they've published a whole spate of excellent, innovative handicapping books that have given the horseplayer a wide and varied perspective of the game. They've done a good job of cornering the market with their strong brand, but every once in a while a book slips under the radar of the big publishing company and makes its own mark because of its excellent content. One such book was Dean Arnold's A Bettor Way; A Winner's Guide to Wagering on the Races, which was published in 2005. More recently , the handicapping book that has emerged from under-the-radar is Prentice Mannetter's Winning Moves; How To Win At Horse Racing.

Available for purchase at, Mannetter's book takes an overall look at the game, from the typical horseplaying staples like money management, record keeping, and exotic wagering, but it also provides some interesting twists. With chapters on stakes racing, particularly the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, as well as chapters the give specific handicapping advice and wagering strategies, Winning Moves has something for every level of player. Mannetter perhaps best known by Horseplayer Magazine readers as the author of "Betting the Pick 4; Three Big Mistakes Players Make and Effective Strategies for Small Bankrolls," which appeared in the January/February 2009 issue of this magazine, has a background in finance and likes to champion the notion of "catalysts"-unique approaches to handicapping that allow a player to land on a horse that most traditional handicappers wouldn't land on. Because Mannetter takes the contrarian approach, his advice is often fresh and controversial.

In short, Winning Moves is a worth addition to the handicapping genre and a must-read by any serious player of the game. --Horseplayer Magazine, March/April 2009 Issue
