Beyer shows the handicapper how to make his Beyer Speed Figures the focal point of a wagering strategy for pursuing spectacular profits by relating speed figures to pace, track bias, and track conditions. He helps bettors utilize new opportunities for picking winners, such as video replays and a successfully structured multirace ticket, whether betting online, on the phone, or at the track. This invaluable book on wagering includes a new preface by the author, focusing on the role of simulcasting and the Internet in modern-day handicapping.

Includes bibliographical references (page 239). The creator of a revolutionary new racetrack-betting tecnique that calculates a horse's speed in previous races offers an understandable, anecdotal explanation of how to use these figures to win at the track.

Beyer's speed figures, first introduced almost twenty years ago in Picking Winners, revolutionized racetrack betting. Now, in Beyer on Speed, the author shows how to make speed figures the focal point of an effective betting strategy. Critics and handicappers adore him. The Boston Globe once called him "the manic evangelist, grand guru, and scholarly professor of handicapping. His books espouse strategies and betting philosophies that have shaped the sport.

I consider this a must read for anyone that likes to bet on horse races. There is no magic way to win money at the track but Beyer is the expert on speed ratings, and wether you are an occasional player or love going to the races regularly, you must have this book. It's very educational on how to separate contenders from pretenders.

Reading Andrew Beyer is at once informative and entertaining, which anything on handicapping has no excuse not being. While his first book introduced speed figures, and his second mixed the application of them with an appreciation of other aspects of handicapping, this book revisits the holistic approach - always emphasizing speed figures - in an era when everyone has access to more information than ever, and many even know how to use it. What makes reading Beyer so fascinating is that one is made to see, vividly, the endless testing and working out of new ideas and approaches, in the stories - one might call them lessons - he recounts (the chapter on turf betting is a classic of sports writing). Beyer, like Bill James, is a scientist, and thinks like one, to the edification of all who choose not to keep recycling the same old bromides, and making the same old mistakes. People like Beyer and Steve Davidowitz are largely responsible for the ever-escalating arms race which parimutuel bettors are fighting amongst themselves. It's a wonderful game, but if you don't want to get left behind, better read this.

I like the overall book and his stories are funny. I have been playing for awhile and wanted to see what other people who have written books were saying. The outline that he lays down is a solid strategy to use. A great insight into the toughest sport I've ever played that's for sure...

just ok! I didn't think is explained it well enough
While probably not the best handicapping book even from the Beyer set, this is one of the more entertaining handicapping books around. You should read his earlier stuff first to see how he evolved as a handicapper to incorporate some ideas such as pace, trip, and form cycles, where earlier he had largely dismissed those. Where I spent a lot of time taking notes from other handicapping books, I spent more time turning pages and just enjoying a good read here.
