Gold from the Sand: The Alchemy of All-weather Racing

On 30th October 1989 a new era in British horseracing began when the first all-weather meeting took place on Lingfield's Equitrack surface. Punters therefore had to come to terms with a completely new type of racing. The original edition of Gold From The Sand was one of the very few books totally dedicated to this type of racing and emphasised the point that form showed on the turf should be used very sparingly in trying to predict the outcome of a race on sand. Since then, Polytrack surfaces have been introduced, which brings a new factor to bear to the statistics.
