The information was interesting and the author was very readable. Although the book was written years ago the information can still be used today.

I bought this book thinking it would help me understand life on the backstretch. Not so much.

Jay Hovdey, Inside Horse Racing (Ballantine, 1987)

There was a brief period when the major presses would actually publish books about horse racing. (That period seems to be returning, thanks to Seabiscuit and the reprinted Ruffian: Burning from the Start being such good sellers.) It's probably the case that books like Inside Horse Racing were what caused the bigwigs in the industry to relegate most publishing of books about the only decent sport on the planet to vertical-market publishers like Bonus.

Not that Inside Horse Racing is a bad book by any means, but no matter how you look at it, it's a vertical-market book. Hovdey seems as if he's doing a general-interest "intro to horse racing" kind of thing, with four long chapters (on the horses themselves, handicapping, and the roles of jockeys and trainers) that do give an overview of his subject; however, it seems to me that the target audience for Hovdey's book is those who have at least casually followed the sport long enough to be familiar with, if not the trainers and jockeys, at least the horses. Each of the chapters save the handicapping chapter, which is far too general for the average beginning horse racing reader to find useful (much like Mark Cramer's works, which are marketed specifically to experienced horseplayers), talks about ways of ranking its subjects in terms that even the experienced player may find vague.

While it's an interesting academic exercise, and will find a welcome home in the libraries of collectors of racing books, this isn't one I'd recommend picking up until well after you've fleshed out the bones of your racing library. ** ½
