Myths that Continue to Destroy A Horseplayer's Bankroll: The Best of Dick Mitchell on Betting Strategy & Money Management
Got the bankroll blues? Or maybe you want to accelerate how fast your racetrack profits grow? Either way, this book can help.
It's a modern, revised edition of the late, great Dick Mitchell's 1985 classic Myths That Destroy a Horseplayer's Bankroll. Titled Myths That Continue to Destroy a Horseplayer's Bankroll, it features 10 pulsating, straight-to-the-point chapters guaranteed to disabuse you of the most pervasive myths contributing to the typical horseplayer's downfall. If you subscribe to any of these harmful myths, all you can do is move, as Mitchell so eloquently put it, "one step closer to divesting yourself of your worldly goods!"
In the modern game, no one was better than Mitchell when it came to bringing the complex math and abstruse formulas of smart wagering and shrewd money management to vibrant, practical life. This book proves it! If you've ever felt confused about which horse to bet at the window, if you've ever hemmed and hawed over your computer, hand twitching at the mouse as you wondered which exacta combinations to send in via your in-home wagering service, if you've ever wheeled 12 runners or boxed half a dozen horses in the gimmicks and felt stupid afterwards, not to worry. After reading this book, the confusion goes away, as does the hemming and hawing and all those other stupid feelings.
A new confidence guides you as you assuredly learn to tackle all bets in the modern racing game: win, exacta, daily double, trifecta, superfecta, pick 3, pick 4...it's all in here. There's even a retro, throwback place-and-show strategy you'll actually want to be on the lookout for. Fantastic! Best of all, you don't need to be a math wizard to start betting smarter immediately. The thorny issues of deciding when to bet, what to bet and how much to bet go away, and you'll be flat-out amazed at how quickly they do. Aggressive, moderate, conservative, whatever your investment style, there's a way for you to make money at the races. Discover it now within the pages of this book.
Updated with 21st century examples, new research, never-before-published techniques and fresh advice for our day and age of hyperexotic wagering, Myths That Continue to Destroy a Horseplayer's Bankroll preserves all the down-to-earth style and straight-talk instruction only Mitchell could provide. 63 pages, 8-1/2 x 11 paper format
