How to enjoy a day at the races-and bet to win!
The last two years have seen a record number of Americans tune in
for climatic Triple Crown races featuring Smarty Jones and Funny
Cide; in 2004, television viewership jumped a whopping 61 percent
over the record set in 2003, and the Belmont Stakes race itself
drew a record crowd of more than 120,000! This easy-to-understand

of horse racing-and make smart bets. It explains what goes on at
the track, what to look for in horses and jockeys, how to read a

funds and make wagers that stand a good chance of paying off.
Complete with coverage of off-track and online betting, it's just
what anyone needs to play the ponies-and win!
