Book. Book condition: Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "Here's the method that actually beat the races in print in the West's largest afternoon newspaper for four straight years..Lots of folks claim they can beat the races. But here is the incredible story of a modern-day handicapping genius who proved to millions he could beat the races year in and year out - and did it in print! Professor Gordon Jones actually took a job as a public turf handicapper in the West's largest afternoon newspaper seven years ago to prove he's the best in the world at his profession. And for an amazing four-year period he beat Santa Anita for hundreds of dollars on small wagers printed right in his newspaper 24 to 48 hours before the races were run. He established all-time records for total winners and total payoffs in 1974 and 1975. And he did it all right in front of millions of readers. He led 30 competing newspaper selectors in total winners and total payoffs over the last three years at Santa Anita, Hollywood Park, Del Mar, Pomona Fair and Oak Tree. He holds the all-time record for most winners and biggest total payoffs in a single year by any handicapper in the 35 years that horses have been running in Southern California. He holds the record for most winners ever picked in one season at Santa Anita (208) and Oak Tree-at-Santa Anita (67 in only 20 days). He holds the modern West Coast record of picking at least one winner a day in print for 126 consecutive racing programs stretching over almost six months. Here, in this easy-to-read book, Professor Jones details for you how he beats the races and produces more winners paying more money than you ever thought possible!" 154 pages.
