About this title


Modern figure handicapping, the conversion of actual times into speed and pace figures, has become the final word in thoroughbred racing. And with Figure Handicapping, any bettor can understand the importance and use of speed figures in spotting the winning horses.
Many handicappers already use the technique, most without understanding how to properly interpret their findings. They fail to win as often as they could because they don't know the circumstances under which high-figure horses have a better chance to win. With a firm understanding of a horse's past history, now easily available from the Daily Racing Form, anyone using this book can master the techniques of figure handicapping.
Figure Handicapping answers such questions as: What are the best applications of speed figures? When should pace figures supersede speed figures, and vice versa? Under what circumstances should speed figures be ignored? Which patterns in a horse's past performances are most useful? Most reliable? Most profitable? Which claiming horses will rise successfully in class? Which varieties of high-figure horses are bogus? And which can be trusted to win waltzing?
Six of the most popular styles of figure handicapping are discussed, each in clear, detailed, down-to-earth language. From the art of making figures to the final interpretations, Quinn's book illuminates every aspect of figure handicapping.
The book also includes the author's innovative approach to figure handicapping on the turf, replete with brand-new speed charts for twenty-eight racetracks around the country.
