Speed Figures - A 30 Minute Seminar

 

 

In Mordin On Time, Nick sets out his unique method for answering the most fundamental question facing punters in any race, namely: which is the fastest horse? Nick's credentials in this area are second to none. He was timing the sections of races with a stop watch, estimating wind strength and direction, adjusting for movements of running rails, using projected times and calculating average times years before the best-selling American books on speed rating were published.
Now a new edition of this groundbreaking book is out. It incorporates much new material, including, for the first time anywhere, standard times for all Irish racecourses (plus the major French ones). Mordin On Time remains the only book in the world which enables the reader to construct their own speed ratings wherever they live.

Beyer on Speed: New Strategies for Racetrack Betting

ANDREW BEYER thoroughly revolutionized handicapping when he created his Beyer Speed Figures, a measure of how fast a horse has run in a given race, and an indispensable tool for horseplayers. Making the necessary calculations to develop a set of figures for each horse in each race was too time-consuming for most horseplayers, so in 1992 the Daily Racing Form commissioned Beyer and his associates to provide his speed figures for every horse competing in North America. Beyer has been a columnist for the Washington Post since 1978, and contributes regularly to the Daily Racing Form. He is considered one of the leading experts on horse racing.
