Description

Greyhound handicapping is an art, not a science. Dog racing is a puzzle and the more pieces you have, the easier it is to put it all together and see the big picture. Eb doesn't claim to be an expert, just someone who has put in a lot of time and effort to learn the art of handicapping greyhound races. Eb has been researching United States greyhound tracks for over four decades and shares the knowledge he's gained with race fans who want to win more and lose less at the greyhound track. Book 1 starts with an article about what works and what doesn't at the greyhound track and ends the article section with a look at insider tips and how they can help you win. In between those articles, you'll find Eb's opinions about form, speed, whether you should bet on dogs that are moving up or moving down, whether kennel statistics matter and how age affects the racing greyhound. Following the articles, there are three mini systems that are a fun way to play the dogs when you don't want to, or can't, handicap thoroughly. In Book 2, Eb starts off by writing about something that you might not connect with dog racing - race shapes. Horse players are more likely to know what they are and use them to win more at the track. But greyhound players can use them too, although few do. It's one more little piece of the handicapping puzzle that gives you an edge over the crowd. From which dogs are phonies and why, to how to use the break to pick winners, Eb writes as if he's sitting beside you at the track, sharing what he knows with a friend. Book 3 has articles on winners that lose, spot plays and how to spot them, smarter superfecta betting and trifecta angles. There's even an article that tells you how to use a single penny to improve your handicapping skills. Read another article to find out if you're one of the few people - besides Eb - who spots what it is that changes everything at the track, but almost no one notices it. If you're not, I guarantee that you won't miss it the next time you go to the track, because you'll be looking for it. The nine mini-systems are just for fun, but might be just the thing for a day out at the track when you don't want to - or don't have time to handicap. At the end of the books there's a long list of links to greyhound handicapping resources that can help anyone handicap better and smarter. Filled with tidbits of handicapping wisdom and with tips, angles and advice that will help you handicap smarter, these are 3 books that should be on every handicapper's shelf.

About Eb Netr

Eb Netr is my pen name. I went to the dog track for the first time in the late seventies and fell in love with greyhounds and greyhound racing. Since then, I've been to most of the tracks in the US. have published a newsletter, and worked on developing handicapping systems to help other handicappers pick more winners and make more money. While I believe that almost anyone can pick winners at the track by investing time and effort, I think most people go to the track for entertainment, not to get rich. Of course, entertainment is more fun when we can pick some winners and go away with a little more than we arrived at the track with. This is why I wrote these books. My books are an attempt to make profitable greyhound handicapping affordable for everyone. Greyhound and harness racing have brought me a lot of enjoyment over the years. My advice to anyone who likes to play the dogs or the horses is simple. Don't let it take over your life or make you neglect the people in your life. Don't spend more than you can comfortably afford to lose. Most of all, enjoy it and give something back to the dogs and horses. Maybe even adopt a retired greyhound or a standardbred if you have the room, money and love for them.show more
