Horse Racing/a good book on training raeehorses


hello sir, can you suggest me a good book on training thoroughbred racehorses?

Hi Rohit;

First of all, thanks for your question.  By far the best book that I have ever read on training thoroughbred horses, is aptly titled "Training Thoroughbred Horses" by Preston M. Burch.  It is available for purchase online at among other places and is fairly inexpensive, around $20 for a used book - well worth the price.

Another alternative is online classes in "training thoroughbred Horses" at  I don't have any personal information about this, but it does look interesting.  Check out the website.

If you feel that I have adequately answered your inquiry, please leave me a favorable rating.

I can answer all questions regarding the sport of gambling on either or both thoroughbreds and greyhounds - beginning with the initial handicapping process with regard to decisions on which horse or dog to wager, through the wagering process, and ending with the results and profits or losses from those wagers. See my website at


I have worked in thoroughbred tracks and greyhound tracks for the last 30 years and have been highly successful in making profits from my own handicapping systems, both in sales of my systems, and use of my systems in the wagering process. I publish and sell a "Tip Sheet" for any track in the continental United States, Canada, and one greyhound track in Mexico.
