Clifton Press is pleased to announce the long-awaited and much-anticipated release of Dr Geoffrey Hutson’s breakthrough book – Watching Racehorses. This is a book for all punters and horseplayers. It describes Geoffrey’s original discovery, first reported in New Scientist magazine, that bad horse behaviour is a significant predictor of poor racing performance. It reveals the methods that he now uses for successful gambling at the racetrack.

Watching Racehorses explains:

  • how to assess fatness and fitness – the body condition of horses
  • what to look for in the birdcage stalls, including pawing, weaving and restless behaviour
  • the importance of horse tack and equipment, including the bridle and bit, tongue tie, nose roll, pacifiers, boots and bandages
  • the impact of sexual behaviour
  • what to watch out for in the parade ring and mounting yard, including strapper control, horse posture and gait
  • behaviour on the track, including sweating and control by the clerk of the course

Watching Racehorses introduces the new and unique concept of behavioural handicapping – scoring horses according to the total amount of bad behaviour they display before a race.  By simply betting on favourites with perfect behavioural handicaps it is possible for a casual racegoer to turn a normal 5% loss into a 10% profit.

More than 60 behaviour patterns are described in comprehensive detail.  An analysis of the effect of these behaviours on a horse’s winning chance, based on observation of over 10,000 horses, is unprecedented in the history of horse racing.

Most racegoers say that they would like to look at the horses, but don’t know where to look.  This book shows you where and how. There are 250 pages, with over 50 photographs, 30 figures and tables, and a comprehensive index and further reading list.

At last you can throw away the form guide. Bet on behaviour!
