"A brilliant book"
--Barry Meadow, harness betting columnist, Gambling Times
"The Dr. Z system is a legitimate, mathematically sound winning strategy for betting on horses. It does not require handicapping to use. Ziemba and Hausch have provided us with a very nice application of money management in a complicated gambling situation." --Joel Friedman in Systems and Methods
"A landmark book, a masterpiece, a classic, an analytical tour de force. It's all that and more. But most importantly, for the serious horseplayer, it presents an unimpeachable, scientifically proven system for winning consistently at the track." --Alan Goldberg in Systems and Methods
"Ziemba's basic proposition rests on scholarly foundations. He is very much on top of a vast literature demonstrating that pari- mutuel betting at racetracks is an efficient market, just like the stock market. He believes that there are substantial market ineffi- ciencies in place and show betting, and Beat the Racetrack is an effort to explain how you can profitably exploit these." --Daniel Seligman, Fortune
"Destined to become a classic in the literature of racing. The prin- ciple is sound; the evidence is overwhelming. Any serious horse- player who does not read this book is missing a good bet." --Dick Mitchell, Gambling Times
"This book is for people who want to win. The gambling system it presents is one of the few I have ever seen that I think really works. I am convinced enough to bet my own money on it." --Edward O. Thorp, author of Beat the Dealer
"Dr. Z.. .turns betting into an exact science and turns the handicapping over to other people." --Archie McDonald, Vancouver Sun
