    I loved this book because it gives a very plausible method of determining good horses to pick. I used this information in several dry runs of handicapping horses and found the information to be helpful. It is dated, but the information if one is kind of experienced is easier to absorb than what a beginner would be able to. Although it might be more aimed at a experienced handicapper I think that a beginner could apply themselves and after time, be able to handicap well.

    First of all, I think the following review may be unfair to the author and this book. This book was written over 30 years ago, the time when I was still a baby! During this period of over 30 years, things have changed a lot regarding horse racing --- with the invention of VCR, the greatest tool in the history of horse handicapping, we can watch the replay easily to assess the performance of any horses in any races at any time; with the invention of Internet, we can now access to different information on horse racing easily; with the popularity of using PC, we can analyze data easily. These are only a few of the changes happended since 1960s. I also believe horse racing at that time was not as sophisticated as that nowadays.This book only teaches me methods regarding simple assessment on speed (comparison with par time), class (comparison among horses) and condition (comparison of recent performances among horses), with the use of numerous examples in early 1960s. I cannot tell whether these methods were sufficient at that time, but I am sure that these methods alone are not enough nowadays.I do not recommend you to read this book as the ideas presented in it are outdated. Anyway, let me finish this review by emphasizing that my review is not fair to the author and a book which was written over 30 years ago.

    Vincent Reo, Finding Hot Horses (Bonus, 1993)Bill Heller, Overlay, Overlay: How to Bet Horse Like a Pro (Bonus, 1990)Bob McKnight, Eliminate the Losers (Citadel, 1962)Before the Breeders' Cup this year, I decided to forgo my usual re-read of Michael Pizzolla's Handicapping Magic (judging by how badly I did that weekend, this was a very bad idea) and went back to some handicapping books I read years ago to see if they were actually the same way I remembered them. Back when I first read these books, my memory tells me, I found Eliminate the Losers to be by far the best of the bunch, with the other two mediocre at best.Finding Hot Horses was exactly as I remembered it; there's a bit of useful information here and there buried among stuff that most ten-year-olds could likely see through, a handful of long-disproven ideas, and writing that ain't all that hot. Overlay, Overlay, on the other hand, was somewhat better than I'd remembered it, and I earmarked a few ideas to pursue over the next year to see if they had any merit. There wasn't anything wrong with them on the surface, anyway.The real surprise was Eliminate the Losers, which ended up being just another bad sixties handicapping tome. (My disdain for McKnight's Pick the Winners, which I read a few years after this one, probably should have clued me in.) The title is promising; after all, half the battle of handicapping a horse race, and sometimes much more than that, is figuring out which horses you can discard out of hand--but McKnight spends surprisingly little time on this concept given the book's title, instead spending more time on, yes, trying to pick the winners once you've eliminated the losers. Oh, well.I'm going back to Pizzolla. At least I know the information in Handicapping Magic is worthwhile.Overlay, Overlay ***Finding Hot Horses **Eliminate the Losers **

    Sure, McKnight takes his time getting to the secrets in this book, but it's worth it if you have the patience. The book is designed this way because McKnight feels you should earn his secrets of identifying winning horses, eliminating losing horses, and using sure-fire betting techniques. I used his system and in my limited experience as a horse better, I am still hitting with horses in the money at a 76% clip and my win percentage is 38% (over my last 100 races), which are not bad figures. With a greater understanding of horse betting and by not trying to bet as many races as possible, I think with McKnight's information I can improve my percentages even more. McKnight establishes a few different systems in this book for sprint races and routes and teaches you how to avoid races that are too difficult to figure out. He also includes a few stories about legendary horse bettors from the past. This is a great book, a quick two or three day read. The book deals primarily with the figures found in the Daily Racing Form, so get yourself a subscription to DRF online and save yourself a lot of money. The first day I used this book at Del Mar in California, I hit 8 out of 9 races. I was even hitting races I shouldn't have bet on. This book will not only find you decent payoffs on the win end, but huge overlays as well. I hit several winners at 10-1 odds or greater inside of two weeks. McKnight is a genius for horse betting. If you can crack his code in this book, you'll find the secrets you'll need at the track or at the satellite off-track.
