Bestselling handicapping author James Quinn’s most comprehensive work to date

New York, NY (Dec. 19, 2012) Daily Racing Form Press releases James Quinn’s latest book, “The Complete Handicapper,” and at 422 pages, his most comprehensive work to date.

In The Complete Handicapper, Quinn draws on his more than four decades of playing the horses professionally to lay out everything readers need to know to pick winners at the track. In a clear, instructive style, Quinn demystifies the handicapping process and underlines its most important aspects.

Like his hero Tom Ainslie, James Quinn has taught generations of thoroughbred racing fans how to get an edge playing the horses. In The Complete Handicapper, he presents all his best ideas in one volume – with many brand new insights as well. From an overview of the fundamentals, to the nuances of handicapping on the big days, to keeping up with all the ever-changing aspects of the modern game, Quinn covers it all and in the process arms the horseplayer with all the tools needed to become a winning player.

"James Quinn's handicapping books have masterfully educated generations of horseplayers, and his newest title continues that tradition,” said Steven Crist, editor and publisher emeritus, Daily Racing Form. “This is one of those rare handicapping titles that is equally accessible to beginners and experts alike."

“I’m excited about The Complete Handicapper," said James Quinn. "It’s the biggest book I’ve delivered, maybe the best, and I hope it meets with the usual enthusiasm among the players."
The Complete Handicapper retails for $29.95 and can be ordered at or by calling 800-306-FORM. To request a review copy, please contact Tami McCarthy at 212-750-5755.
