 Now You Can BEAT So-called 'Tough' Maiden Races!

Many players avoid playing maiden races thinking they’re too difficult to handicap. Some are, but many are not. In fact, maiden races often present some very lucrative wagering opportunities. The information I present in this  report will reveal how to uncover those rewarding betting opportunities. No longer will you consider the maiden affairs unplayable or unbeatable. You can beat them! I guarantee it.

You Can Uncover Maiden Mysteries!

Without a doubt, my report is the most comprehensive work on playing maidens ever written. That was my goal when I began my research and writing. Before I was done, I had compiled about 115 pages completely devoted to playing all type of maiden contests. Within its pages, you’ll find many profitable ways to beat the maiden affairs. A total of 34 case study  races are examined in great detail, using easy-to-understand language. All case studies are from past performance records from all over the country.

Make Maiden Races Your Favorites!

If you’ve avoided playing maiden races,  you won’t after reading my insightful  report. Maiden races will become a source of delight and consistent profit day after day! This extraordinary work is the pinnacle of the art of maiden horse selection. Besides being exceptional, it’s also very fairly priced, so everyone can reap the profits it makes possible. 

What About Class?

One topic I address extensively is the class factor. As you probably know, the class factor in maiden contests can be difficult to assess accurately. Similarly, so can a class drop or a class hike. Within the examples (the case studies) in the report, I explain the devaluated class drop, which is a negative class drop, and the needed class drop, which is a logical move to the proper class. Once you learn the difference, your selection capability will improve greatly. 

In addition, several examples from recent past performances reveal the most powerful speed figure selection technique ever conceived -- the growth projection technique. Learn to use it and it will reward you with many winners at great prices, and occasionally some huge longshots. This amazing technique alone is worth the cost of the report. It scores for me at a 40% rate with an average payoff of around $13.00.

After get your copy of my report, I would love to hear your comments.

A Look Inside All About Maidens

Here are several excerpts from some of the case studies presented in my report. Read them and you’ll get a feel for the powerful information you'll learn when you get your copy.  

Distorted Groom – This horse won its next race in a state-bred MSW race paying $53.60 to win and topping a $551 exacta and a $1693.60 trifecta. Your copy of All About Maidens will reveal the secret that uncovered this winner. It'll be a priceless addition to your longshot selection arsenal. It’s a must-have item. Order today and in only a few days you’ll begin catching big prices like this every day!


Tontine Too – This horse won its career debut outing paying a monster price of  $95.00 to win and topping a $571 exacta and a $4252.60 trifecta. One simple factor revealed his winning potential. This under-rated selection factor is revealed to you in Case study #7 of my report. You’ve got to know about it!

Erie Canal and Beam Queen – On 4/29/06 at Churchill Downs these two horses were the 1st and 2nd favorites. The general public believed they were about equal betting Erie Canal to 2.00 to 1 and Beam Queen to 2.40 to 1. The public was dead wrong! Erie Canal was by far the superior horse. Case study #20 of my report reveals why.

Tri Some Pie – This maiden won its next race at 8.80 to 1, while moving significantly up in class. Most players obviously discounted his chances due to the class jump. My eye-opening discussion, as part of Case study #30, discloses why he was a super bet, even at nearly 9 to 1.


Parade Girl – This horse won its next outing at 19.60 to 1. The favorite in this race had a 63 speed figure in her last race. To most players, she (the favorite) would appear to be much faster than Parade Girl. But in reality, Parade Girl actually was the faster horse. My unique speed evaluation technique revealed why. She was what I call a hidden-speed horse – a horse faster than her paper numbers indicate. The technique I used to uncover her true speed capability is detail in Case study #31. This is a must-read study.

Endless Power – Trying to evaluate horses switching to a sprint after running only in route races can be a perplexing challenge. My discussion of Endless Power in Case study #33 cleverly shows you how to properly handle is situation. There’s a little math involved, so if you're mathematically inclined, you'll love it.

Something for Every Type of Bettor

As you’ll discover, I address all types of maidens – favorites, false favorites, first time starters, class droppers, class-jumpers, mid-odds goodies, terrific longshots, etc. My report contains something for all players – the beginner, the seasoned player, the spot play enthusiast, the favorites player, speed handicappers, class handicappers, the turf race player, the breeding-is-important player, and the longshot player.
