Ready To Pick The Best Horses
The paramount aim of this book's methods is to select only such horses as appear ready to run as good as their best race, or at least give their backers some kind of a run for their money.
A Horses Record
In the matter of weight, the rules are not quite so strict. Instead of requiring that a horse must have won a race carrying the same weight as or higher than the weight assigned to him today.
Late Action Horses
In the back of the book will be listed a few more general rules for all types of horses and races.
Average Money Won Per Race

Five Aces - A Winning Hand
It might not be very healthy to be caught with five aces if you were playing poker under normal rules, but they can come in mighty handy in handicapping horses.
Making Adjustments In Handicapping Horses
The first thing a race fan should do in handicapping a race is to make certain obvious adjustments in his list of entries or racing paper.
Horse Racing - The Daily Double
One of the times when the race-goer probably will want to make an exception will be when he is trying to pick a daily double.
Straigh Betting At The Racetrack
