Picking Xtra Winners at the Track Handicapping the Wall Street Way shows how Ripple successfully .

Picking Xtra Winners at the Track. In 2005, Ripple authored a ground-breaking piece of work on horse racing handicapping. Handicapping the Wall Street Way shows how Ripple successfully applies theories learned from 20 years in the securities investment game to horse racing. Ripple based his theories on market inefficiencies. One angle of betting that other race handicapping books rarely touch on, but is always discussed by financial advisors, is risk management, prescribing a betting strategy corresponding to the level of risk the bettor is willing to take.

Handicapping the Wall Street Way: Picking Xtra Winners at the Track goes beyond conventional handicapping and offers the author's unique handicapping theory based on nearly 20 years of security and market analysis experience. Starting with the basic premise that pricing or odds inefficiencies offer spectacular opportunities, the author draws parallels between the stock market and pari-mutuel betting pool and explains how to target and exploit these inefficiencies. The author provides psychological profiles of horseplayers as well as an exercise to help the reader.

By studying the consistencies between the stock market and pari-mutuel market or betting pool, horseplayers can gain new insight on how to discover inefficiencies in the betting pool and aid their quest for Xtra winners at the track. ISBN13: 9781581501261. Release Date: October 2005.

Mark Ripple's best selling book, Handicapping the Wall Street Way:Picking Xtra Winners at the Track. Market inefficiencies are the key to finding value, both in the stock market and at the track. Most of the time, the odds board and stock prices are efficiently set by the public. Irrational behavior by the public turns this around, allowing the contrarian a chance to profit. Examples: the dot-com boom of the late 1990's, and the Belmont with the Triple Crown on the line. These are extreme examples, but inefficiencies occur every day at every track.

This guide instructs horseplayers how to apply stock market theories to betting horse races. By studying the consistencies between the stock market and pari-mutuel market or betting pool, horseplayers can gain new insight on how to discover inefficiencies in the betting pool and aid their quest for Xtra winners at the track.
Comments to eBook Handicapping the Wall Street Way: Picking Xtra Winners at the Track
Nothing personal
This book is simply outstanding in drawing analogies between stock market investing and horse investing. Although the specific handicapping systems provided by Mr. Ripple are pretty bad, valuable statistics regarding types of races and the percentages of winning favorites are provided. The best handicapping advice I ever received is contained in this book and in an episode of the Rockford Files, an episode in which jockey Laffit Pincay Jr., played a role.. James Garner is pretending to be a professional horseplayer when a female dinner companion asks him what his secret is to beating the races. Rockford replies, "don't bet claiming races." In my opinion, betting on claiming races is the equivalent of betting on the quality of used cars. Unfortunately for horseplayers, Mark Ripple passed away a few years ago, but his book is a lasting contribution to handicapping literature.

I read the book in about 1-1/2 hours two nights ago. The author is not a skilled writer. Like a lot of horse racing books, he repeats certain information far too much. The book is also small and thin (starts on page 11 and ends on page 82 with blank and significantly less than full pages between. I will not agree with the author with respect to Martingale betting and in over simplifications regarding professional, rational and irrational bettors. The book appears to have been written over a two week period in November 2004.

I think there are some reasonable points raised with respect to ideas such as wagering on Belmont Stakes (bettors caught up in hype), types of races to look for (e.g. 3+ yo vs. 2 & 3 yo), and strategies for certain types of races (e.g. MCl and MSW races). Many books I have read advocate avoiding horses higher than 5:1, but the author has some ideas for higher odds horses (not tried). He also tries to tie the ideas together at the end.

I miss Mark, he was a good handicapper. I miss our phone conversations about what makes a good bet and what horse would win the next derby every year. You wrote a great book and was a good person. Rest In Peace my friend. You will never be forgotten.

After reading about this handicapping book in an interview Mark E. Ripple did for CBS Marketwatch.com shortly before the Kentucky Derby, I bought it, and was able to coax my friends into making a few online racing bets. The results were fantastic! In that interview, Amy Hoak called Mark Ripple an expert, and I will agree that he certainly is an expert teacher.

Handicapping the Wall Street Way is a very well-written, easy to understand book for novice horseplayers like me. Another one of my friends, who I would consider an intermediate to advanced player herself, said that she could relate to the stock market, financial aspect of it, and it changed the way she thinks about certain types of bets. I have a financial background, and I'd wager that I will start to rethink some of my investment plays as well.

I wasted a lot of money on a lot of handicapping books, and I can honestly say that for $12.95, this is by far the Handicapping the Wall Street Way: Picking Xtra Winners at the Track.

I got this book a week or so ago and was quite impressed. I've read almost every book on handicapping and this gave me some really useful bits of information. And I love his concept of relating the stock market and handicapping. While many handicapping books out there were good in their day, it makes sense to me that they can only continue to be successful if everyone and his brother aren't using them. Speed, and pace handicapping are fine, but again the information is so accessible, there really isn't any advantage to mastering those methods. This book is an entirely new approach which, too, may lose its "luster" so to speak, in twenty years, but for now its definitely the best current release on the subject. True pros who handicap for a living may not find it as useful as I do, but beginners to advanced intermediate handicappers should definitely have this book on their shelf.

This book is a beautiful blend of both stock market and handicapping theory. Mark Ripple has the double fortune of an advanced knowledge of both and it shows in "Handicapping the Wall Street Way." He takes the time to explain how to win certain races, and utilize strategies that he developed. I found that extremely helpful. He picked Pleasant Home at 30-1 to win the Distaff on Breeder's Cup day (not in the book; a Las Vegas radio show) and gosh, that was amazing in it of itself. There is a great section on exactas as well. This book pieces a lot of things together for me, and that is the point I am trying to make. Previous handicapping books were fine, but when you tie this one in, you will soon see that past, present, and future books (even this one) are not meant to stand alone, and that one really needs a library of them.

This may be the worse book ever written on handicapping.
The author is definitely not a a horse player.
Good title for a book that does not live up to the hype.
The Author Mark E. Ripple clearly does NOT know what he's talking about. "Handicapping the Wall Street Way" is a great example of an author clearly way out of his league. He boasts and rationalizes why he is winning certain races, and quite frankly has no idea what he's talking about. If you're in finance and wondering..... is it worth reading....don't even bother reading this awful excuse for a book on handicapping.... It can only hurt your money management at the track. One would think that a savvy wall street guru would be able to use variance and standard deviation as a measure of risk in a horse race?
