Bet With The Best 2: Longshots


Finding horses with concrete qualities going off at boxcar odds has become increasingly difficult in today’s technologically advanced handicapping era. Cutting-edge computer programs, readily available workout and trip-note information, streaming race-replay videos, updated pace and class pars, and elevated pedigree data have made today’s serious player better prepared than ever before. So how does a horseplayer find an edge in the contemporary game? The original Bet with the Best was the first book in over a decade to provide modern-day techniques to compete in the ever-changing 21st-century racing and wagering environment. Now some seven years later, the game has continued to evolve, and finding value at the betting windows has become an arduous task for even the most disciplined and heavily bankrolled players. We’re happy to report that the same stable of DRF contributors is back to author a completely updated and revamped Bet with the Best 2: Longshots to help today’s player keep pace with the changing game. Some of the highlights from this new and improved edition include Alan Shuback’s look at uncovering overlays among first-time imports from Britain, France, and Ireland. Pedigree expert Lauren Stich evaluates the “hidden-turf” angle and explores various breeding angles. Handicapping legend Andrew Beyer discusses the unprecedented technological advances available to today’s player with specific insight into DRF’s Formulator software and how it has changed the way he’s evaluating trainer patterns and turf racing. New York’s own Dave Litfin begins with a valuable breakdown on the winning stats of favorites and then offers advice on how to make the odds work for you. Veteran pace expert Tom Brohamer takes a fresh look at par times, the turn-back play, and the importance of constructing track profiles in the new synthetic-surface era, while James Quinn provides a detailed analysis of overlays at the various class levels, as well as figure patterns and form reversals. Author and renowned handicapper Steve Davidowitz discusses many profitable meet-specific angles that continue to score at long odds, and provides a master list of low-profile trainers worth following across the country. Brad Free takes a look at several of racing’s traditional handicapping methods (speed figures, class drops, track bias) and explains how many of these bread-and-butter handicapping facets can still produce daily overlays. Steven Crist writes about exotic wagering and the true value of longshots. And finally, Mike Watchmaker examines Grade 1 events and the opportunities for uncovering longshots on racing’s biggest days. Bet with the Best 2: Longshots exposes handicapping angles you may not have considered before, and proves that although the game may have gotten tougher to beat, there are still overlays to be had. Whether you’re new to the game or have been ceaselessly grinding it out for years, you will find Bet with the Best 2 to be a useful and welcome addition to your personal handicapping library.
