From the Back Cover
For a public handicapper, Bill Heller did the unthinkable at Saratoga in 1995. In a regular newspaper feature, he started the 34-day meet with a mythical $1,000 bankroll and finished at $1,854.80, thanks to a gigantic exotic overlay on closing day: a $2 Pick Three wager which returned $1,033. Incredibly, two of the three winners were a favorite and a second choice.
Heller, the author of Overlay, Overlay and Harness Overlays, wrote Exotic Overlays to reflect the ever-growing number of exotic wagering options at tracks as full-card simulcasting has become routine.
In Exotic Overlays, Heller details methods to find vulnerable favorites and cash exotic overlays in Daily Doubles, exactas, triples (trifectas), the Pick Three, and superfectas.
For the challenging but incredibly rewarding Pick Six wager, he enlists the aid of the country's most noted Pick Six authority, Steve Crist of the New York Racing Association. Crist, who earned the nickname of "Mr. Pick Six", offers his strategies, opinions, and suggestions along with the author's to provide some of the soundest betting advice around.
