This book made a huge difference. I was able to use the information in the book to create a little bit of a "checklist" so that as I'm handicapping a race I make sure I don't miss something. I have gone from avoiding maiden races like the plague to looking for series of races that include them with one of my "Prime Bets" (detailed in the book). This Del Mar season (summer 2015) I ended up hitting a handful of longshots (8-1 and above) that I wouldn't have found without this knowledge as well as a few pick 4's and a monster $3000 pick 5 on a $64 ticket.
I would recommend this book to anyone who regularly handicaps races.
