The Anatomy of Horse Race Handicapping
Or How to Have Fun at the Track
by Jean Chodkowski
 

The book was written for all of you, who watch horse racing only to find themselves lost, wanting to know more about the sport, but not knowing where to begin. So, it may just be the help you're looking for, by offering a unique perspective on how to enjoy a day at the races. You may visit the track only a few times a year; or you may be a new owner; or even a regular race fan, who wants to find the fun again that has gone from their race watching. At the end of our lively and amusing discussion on how to handicap with your head, eyes, blood, gut, heart, and by your tail, namely, the physical anatomy common to both horse and human (well, maybe not the tail part exactly) the reader will be able to converse comfortably on any of the sport's diverse aspects. Most importantly, they will know how to have fun at the track.
