Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Don Blazer has worked with horses for the past 30 years. He has been a successful show and race horse trainer and trader, and he backs his experience with industry statistics.

From the Author

A lot of people love horses and own a lot of horses, but few actually know how to go about making a profit. Every horse has a "profit potential" which must be identified and then presented. This book is for anyone interested in the business of horses. It is not necessary for you to handle, train, or even keep horses to turn a nice profit.

This book has some great ideas, with alot of percentages for examples, but it is primarily for the individual that wishes to go into the horse racing business. Theres not too much info for the person that wants to make money having a riding facility, or giving trail rides. Basically its for someone that wants to make a quick profit buying horses and fastly turning around and selling them. I would not recommed this book for the person wishing to start a nice casual back yard business.

As I started skipping through the book I found some subjects that caught my eye. The chapters on stallions and trainers are absolutely great. Because of the interest in these two, I went back to the beginning, and low and behold, you can apply quite a bit of this information to a wide variety of situations (it refers mostly to racing). In particular, the recommended method of evaluating horses could be useful when looking at any type of horse. This book is one I'll keep in my library.

I purchased this book in 2001 when I was starting out in the Thoroughbred Horse Racing business. It is now April 2, 2006 and I still quote this book. So much so that my trainer is purchasing 5 copies for his other owners. It is really good for people who are just getting into the business; do not have a lot of money or having problems making a profit. So far I have not loss a dime on any horse I have owned. I often refer to it as my "Racing Bible". Need I say more?

As with most make money with "whatever" books some of the ideas are fairly obvious. Others sound interesting but don't really go into some of the difficulties. A quick read if your needing inspiration for your horse business.
