WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO CONSISTENTLY BEAT THE RACES?

Are there really people who consistently win at the racetrack? Yes there are, and in Six Secrets of Successful Bettors: Winning Insights into Playing the Horses, you'll finally meet them and learn their secrets. Frank R. Scatoni and Peter Thomas Fornatale have put together a one-of-a-kind gambler's gem in their quest to find the small percentage of racetrack investors who beat the game. Do you have what it takes to join them?

Through extensive research and interviews, Scatoni and Fornatale have found that there are specific traits that these successful gamblers share. By combining elements of traditional business analysis with proven handicapping methods and practical lessons learned in the wagering trenches, these unique professionals have developed a model for consistent success. They not only understand the fundamentals of value analysis, money management, and betting strategy, but also have developed the discipline and mental fortitude that ultimately separate the knowledgeable enthusiast from the successful investor.

After interviewing more than two dozen professional players, the authors have identified the six secrets that all of these successful individuals have in common. Whether you're a casual weekend player or a serious fan contemplating turning pro, all of the practical elements for success are candidly revealed in this truly fascinating journey into the gambling habits of the world's greatest players.

Interviews with horseplayers Andrew Beyer, Paul Braseth, Dave Cascuna, Paul Cornman, Steven Crist, Ernie Dahlman, Steve Davidowitz, Cary Fotias, Brad Free, Len Friedman, Randy Gallo, Dave Gutfreund, Jim Mazur, Barry Meadow, Gerry Okuneff, James Quinn, Roxy Roxborough, Andy Serling.

Other gamblers interviewed include blackjack expert Kevin Blackwood and poker champions Clonie Gowen, Howard Lederer and "Amarillo Slim" Preston.

PRAISE FOR SIX SECRETS OF SUCCESSFUL BETTORS

"Whether you're at the poker table or at the racetrack, there are certain things you need to know to be a winner. One of the most important is to develop a winning mindset--something that all of the bettors in this book have done with great success, from Howard Lederer to Andy Beyer. Hearing these players speak about their methods and strategies, in their own words, provides a great roadmap for success."
Phil Hellmuth - Nine time World Series of Poker champion and best-selling author of Play Poker Like the Pros and Bad Beats and Lucky Draws

"Anyone can have an opinion. But only the best horseplayers have opinions backed by insightful strategies. Six Secrets of Successful Bettors is a fascinating glimpse into the mindsets of some of America's best gamblers. Although the authors focus on six secrets, I found there to be many more precious handicapping tidbits spread throughout the book."
Randy Moss - ESPN horseracing analyst

"If I had a dollar for every gambler I've met in the last 50 years who's claimed to be a pro, I'd be a millionaire 10 times over. In Six Secrets of Successful Bettors, more than two dozen of the world's shrewdest players reveal their winning secrets."
