About the Author

ANDREW BEYER thoroughly revolutionized handicapping when he created his "Beyer Speed Figures," a measure of how fast a horse has run in a given race, and an indispensable tool for horseplayers. Making the necessary calculations to develop a set of figures for each horse in each race was too time-consuming for most horseplayers, so in 1992 the Daily Racing Form commissioned Beyer and his associates to provide his speed figures for every horse competing in North America. Beyer has been a columnist for the Washington Post since 1978, and contributes regularly to the Daily Racing Form. He is considered one of the leading experts on horse racing.


"This exuberant memoir will delight the hearts, improve the minds, and fatten the bankrolls of horseplayers everywhere." -Tom Ainslie"Andy Beyer goes to the races for all of us. Reading his book is like winning the exacta." -Jim Murray, Los Angeles Times"My $50000 Year at the races is an entertaining odyssey through the land of the handicapper. Andrew Beyer's approach to the arcane art of selecting winners makes for fascinating reading. His expertise is obvious, even to the layman, but he does not conceal the central thrust of the book- how to pick a winner- behind a fa├žade of technical verbiage, This is good reading, start to finish." -Joe Hirsch"Horseplayers should forget today's daily double, exacta, and triple- and put their money on this sure winner." -Bill Surface, author of The Track
