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.
