Dick Mitchell Videos
Revised and Updated on DVD

By Far The Easiest Way To Learn These Crucial Concepts!

Foreword by Charles Carroll

Dick Mitchell was a rare combination of a master handicapper and a master teacher who could convey ideas in such an engaging style that you would enjoy it so much you almost didn't realize how much you were learning. Dick passed away in 2006, but he left behind a legacy of landmark books that hopefully every handicapper knows about and has read. What many handicappers may not know is that he also left behind a legacy of videos of his teaching on a whole variety of handicapping subjects. Cynthia Publishing is now updating some of these using classic Dick Mitchell segments with interspersed updates taking into account recent research and the availability of vast numbers of races today via simulcasting.

Common Sense Betting Strategy - Plus Practical Apps/Computer 'Cappin

Publisher's description:

Is it worth $29.95 to learn how to bet properly?

You bet — especially when you consider that most good handicappers don't win nearly as much as they should precisely because their betting-strategy skills are lacking.

More than anything else, betting strategy determines just how much you take home from the track over the long run. So it pays to improve your skills in this vital area.

Thankfully, most of your competitors at the racetrack refuse to bet anywhere close to intelligently. They commit the same common blunders over and over at the mutuel windows.

In this fantastic DVD spanning more than 110 minutes, you'll learn how to take full advantage of their generosity. Dick Mitchell was a master betting strategist, and this DVD proves it. He effortlessly takes you through the proper betting strategies, backing them up with the immutable, absolute truth of mathematics.

You'll learn how to make the most of the relationships between odds, probability and expectation. Indeed, the equation Mitchell provides for expectation will be your version of e=mc2. In other words, it'll represent a quantum leap in your understanding of savvy betting strategy. You'll be putting the odds on your side in the win, place-and-show, daily double and pick 3 pools.

You'll watch this DVD over and over, reinforcing Mitchell's rock-solid concepts with actual "trips to the track" courtesy of our professional staff's practical applications of Mitchell's lectures. You'll see the theories being put to real-world use. You will learn by doing.

This DVD is guaranteed to improve your bottom line, and you don't have to change your handicapping one bit. Is it worth $29.95 to learn how to bet properly? Is it worth $29.95 to be able to stop saying, "If I only knew how to bet..." This DVD will change your outlook. Watch it and start enjoying a new confidence and clarity in your betting. More important, enjoy their positive effects on your bottom line

Commonsense Exacta and Modern Techniques - Plus Short Meets, Long Prices

Publisher's description:

It's all about the handicapping as well as the betting strategy. Dick Mitchell will teach you both.

The exacta represents your best chance for exotics profits. You don't need a huge bankroll. You don't need tons of luck to hit it. You bet a little to win a lot, and you can do it with surprising frequency. Try that with the other exotics.

But before you can make the exacta work for you, you need to work the exacta. It takes a combination of skills: unique exacta handicapping and unique exacta wagering strategy. It's a little more complex than straight win-betting, but with the right instruction and a little practice, you can do it.

Mr. Dick Mitchell will show you how. He'll alert you to the subtleties of exacta wagering, including the magical "place-horse" as well as a discussion of making the exacta pay in the presence of vulnerable and false favorites. And you'll learn how to make money in the exacta even when the favorite is legitimate and unbeatable.

And just as you learned in the "Commonsense Betting Strategy" DVD, you'll learn to treat the exacta as an investment, not a gamble. You'll learn to avoid the most common (and utterly disastrous) exacta blunders. You'll replace bad exacta habits with healthy, value-oriented approaches that will trim your exacta overhead while increasing your return on investment. This has the happy effect of making your exacta bankroll grow like never before.

As always, our professional staff updates the original Mitchell findings with exacta truths of the 21st century, plus in-depth, hands-on workshops to help you master the nuts and bolts of optimal exacta wagering. Your techniques and results will improve dramatically.

And there's exclusive, topical information on beating the tail-ends of the Del Mar and Saratoga meets plus info on prospering at Fairplex and Belmont's fall championship meet.

Commonsense Money Management

From Charles Carroll:

Dick Mitchell wrote some landmark books on handicapping and betting that were (and are) essential reading for serious handicappers. One of the most important was on money management, but like some of his books, it was so dense with math that the standing joke was, no one had ever actually read it from cover-to-cover, including Dick. This DVD will break any mental block you have about understanding these concepts. Dick walks and talks you through the essential concepts of money management and betting, in not only a painless but entertaining way!

These are fundamentals you must understand if you are serious about raising your skills from a "punter" to a serious and successful investor at the track. There is no more comfortable way to learn them than by watching a master teacher explain them in simple, straight forward language. Highly recommended!

Publisher's description:

All the lessons you need for savvy racetrack investing — growing your profits with the right measure — are here, distilled into easy-to-apply strategies you can start using after just one viewing.

These last-race instant form-reversal plays (both anti-favorite and pro-longshot) will have you looking forward to exciting form-surprise situations the public just keeps getting wrong again and again. You'll love the simplicity and effectiveness of these wonderful form-factor opportunities.

And there's bonus coverage of early-season two-year-olds and the ultra-short sprints they compete in. Favorites or longshots in these? And with a dearth of past-performance info on these babies, how do you decipher them? We'll tell you!
