Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Calculating the pace and comparative speed of horses in a race often holds the key to the puzzle of selecting the winner.

Synopsis:

While previous handicapping methodologies have paid attention to pace — the horse's rate of speed at various times throughout the race and the factors that affect it — no one has been able to provide a convincing synthesis of all the issues of pace. In Modern Pace Handicapping, Brohamer illustrates that fractional times, running styles, turn times, track variants, and final times are not independent factors when it comes to pace handicapping. Armed with the information in this book, you will understand how a badly beaten losing horse at Belmont can become a runaway winner at Hollywood Park.
