Two books on handicapping by William Murray, hardcover with dust jackets, in excellent condition.
1. The Right Horse: How to Win More, Lose Less and Have a Great Time at the Racetrack. Each chapter of "The Right Horse" contains anecdotes and sayings, bits of lore and track wisdom that will serve to illuminate the world of horseracing. William Murray takes the reader on a tour of the track, introducing them to the game and its players. Not only the horses, but also the people whose lives are bound up with them, front and backside: owners, trainers, jockeys, touts, tipsters and hustlers. The reader will gain a knowledge of how this world works--what it looks, what it smells like, tastes like--and how much fun it can be. Published in 1997.
2. THE WRONG HORSE: An Odyssey Through the American Racing Scene. Published in 1992. Probably better to have both!
