How to enjoy a day at the races-and bet to win

The last two years have seen a record number of Americans tune in for climatic Triple Crown races featuring Smarty Jones and Funny Cide; in 2004, television viewership jumped a whopping 61 percent over the record set in 2003, and the Belmont Stakes race itself drew a record crowd of more than 120,000

This easy-to-understand guide shows first-time visitors to the track how to enjoy the sport of horse racing-and make smart bets. It explains:
  • what goes on at the track
  • what to look for in horses and jockeys
  • how to read a racing form and do simple handicapping
  • how to manage betting funds and make wagers that stand a good chance of paying off.
Complete with coverage of off-track and online betting, it's just what anyone needs to play the ponies-and win
