Winning At The Track

For newbies, Winning At The Track, by David Christopher. I don't know if it's related to the software program or website of the same name, but it may be. Not sure why Mr. Christopher's name isn't attached to website, unless he's passed on. This little book is 30 years old, and while it doesn't always hone in on one winner, it does a good job at identifying exactas, tri's and supers. His use of speed ratings changed my mind on what's decent form vs. some of the more traditional definitions. From memory, he relies mostly on last race, or occasionally 2nd last race. I admit to thinking it was too simplistic on first look, but then I saw how it worked.
