Book Review Horse Racing Dynamics: How To Master Maiden Races

Longtime Sartin Methodology client and member of Pace and Cap
N.E Broat AKA "Omar" Has written a very good book about betting maiden races

Horse Racing Dynamics: How To Master Maiden Races - A BluePrint for Success

Attachment 47542

I received this book about 2 weeks ago, It was written by an old friend from back in the days when I was first starting out with Richie at the Meadowlands
When I opened the package I thought, Oh well good for Niel, "Omar" but I really never had much desire to read a book about maiden races.

I have known Niel for 21 years. Niel has been a Sartin client since the mid-eighties. Niel is an excellent handicapper and very nice guy. Once I gave the book a chance, I was very impressed
Niel has written a very good book about maiden races, and how to bet them.
The book teaches a method that is so easy to follow and I must say I am very impressed with the few races I have used the methods outlined in the book.

The book consists of 10 maiden races handicapped step by step by Niel
The races are from Gulfstream, Tampa Bay, Santa Anita, and Fairgrounds
Each race starts out with clear unmarked large print past performances.
provided by Post Time Daily 2.0 TM A result chart from Equibase TM follows each race example.
Each race is presented in the style which I love. This style is right out of the Follow-Ups and one I have used here at Pace and Cap for years.

Each race shows the PP's and then Niel goes over horse by horse in a detailed analysis, Each race is clearly taught as for why each horse is a contender or can be tossed.

The 10 example races vary in winning scores for low to amazing

I have never been a maiden race player. Maiden races with many unknowns
like first-time starters or very few pacelines have always been taught to be avoided within the methodology, But in today's racing with so many generous mutuals opportunities from horizontal bets, It is vital today to include maiden races.

I give the book "Horse Racing Dynamics: How To Master Maiden Races - A BluePrint for Success" A 9.5 rating It is a down and dirty workbook
The PP's are in a big clear full page format. So many handicapping books reduce the PP's way too small and blurry. Not the case here.
Niel presents each race and review in a friends-helping friends style
that all readers of Pace and Cap will appreciate

Great work "Omar"

Is he just showing examples for how he does the race or is there a method for choosing his horses? I am interested!

I should let Omar
Hi Conley

I should let Omar take over questions at this point,
My opinion though is, the book teaches concepts in the same format as was presented in all the early Follow Ups "Problem Races" and manual examples

Each race is worked in a conceptual format. As in real life, every race is unique There is a worksheet which can be photocopied included.

Good timing - thanks for the heads up - I ordered a copy today!

Both. I lay out my method in the "preface" and then explain it all in 10 example races. It's really not that hard- no computer required. The hardest part is trying to figure out which tracks will offer the most value on the day you play. I may be looking at Tam and GP and not finding any good plays but as i check the other tracks at the end of the day i may find that at AQU or LRL they had big prices in their maiden races. Sometimes you can't play them all because the races overlap each other time wise. I still average 12 races a day when i play. I play all races, not just maidens. They were right- i never met a race that i didn't like. By the way it's spelled NEIL or you can call me Omar or Mr H. for short. Thanks for the review Bill.

I was also impressed by Bill's review. I ordered the book and it should be here by the end of the week.

3/1 came flying up the rail, or as Richie P. used to say
He came from Mars

I love the book, It sure makes maiden races interesting

McLaughlin is notorious for winning with 2nd time starters no matter how bad they may look on paper after the first race. This one just missed in the first start guaranteeing a low price.

Bill V. 12-15-2018 04:06 PM

Hi Tim

Yes sir This was an excellent 2nd-time live starter. $8.10 is a solid price

I love the 2 works since the last race. and under the ml at bet time

Hope you are having a great holiday sesaon
