Dark Horse DARK HORSE and Special Bonus Short Story, PONY RIDES

FREE! * * * Special Bonus Section * * * PONY RIDES, the Tucson Weekly Magazine Words and Images Award-winning short story by J. Carson Black

DARK HORSE, a novel of suspense

“A terrific tale of murder and mayhem set on the Quarter Horse racing circuit in the American Southwest. Watch out, Dick Francis!”
—New York Times Bestselling Author J.A. JANCE

Despite the accidents plaguing his racing business, horse breeder Coke McCallister was sure that Shameless, his prized filly, would put him back on top. But now Coke is dead, and his daughter Dakota returns to Arizona determined to sell Black Oak. Dakota is not prepared for the bittersweet memories that greet her, and she really isn’t prepared to see her ex-husband, Clay Pearce. Although she has every reason to distrust him, who else can she turn to in an atmosphere fraught with danger? Who else can she confide in when her life is threatened by an unseen stalker?

When Dakota enters the filly Shameless in the All American Futurity, a desperate killer lays a trap. And on the eve of the race, Dakota learns the shattering truth. If she runs the filly to restore her father’s good name, her actions could bring down Black Oak and everything with it.
And she could lose her life.


“DARK HORSE brings readers smack dab to the center of the complex and fascinating world of horse breeding and racing, and will take readers on an intense and nerve-shattering ride that is bound to please.”

“DARK HORSE should put Falk in the Winner’s Circle.”
—New York Times Bestselling Author TONY HILLERMAN

“…joins the ranks of Nora Roberts and Janet Dailey with her wonderfully fresh tale of mystery and romance. A book rich in character and place, where the reader experiences firsthand the fascinating world of Quarter Horse racing and the mélange of people drawn to it. DARK HORSE marks the arrival of a most welcome new talent in romantic suspense. Gripping. Satisfying. A keeper!”

“Suspense and romance combined with the excitement of Quarter Horse racing and thrill of competing in a million-dollar race make DARK HORSE a winner.”

What readers say about DARK HORSE:

“I finished reading DARK HORSE last night (at 3 AM). I loved it and couldn’t put it down. … I had to tell you how much I enjoyed it and thank you for writing it. There isn’t a boring page in it. You have it Just Right. Thanks again – I’m glad I found you.”
—Alva B.

“I wanted to tell you of my recent excitement in reading your novel DARK HORSE. I purchased it because of the attractive cover and the praise of Judy Jance… a great lady and a wonderful writer. I am also a fan of Dick Francis. Your work is as good, if not better than his. … Thank you for the good read.”
—Dan M.

“I received a copy from you at the All American Futurity. I am the Navajo Indian racehorse owner from Colorado. … It was interesting to talk to you and see how you did your own track research. This research showed, as it really brings out realism in this book and makes it very enjoyable from my perspective as a horse owner.”
—Ross A.

“I have just finished reading your book DARK HORSE. To say that it was great is putting it mildly. I have been involved with horse racing, both at recognized tracks, as well as match racing all my adult life. … I won the 1985 All American Futurity with Mr. Trucka Jet. … I read all of Dick Francis’s books, as well as Shoemaker’s two, and I must say that I enjoyed reading your book every bit as much as anything they have written. If not more. Keep up the good work.”

Precision: Statistical and Mathematical Methods in Horse Racing "Precision ... Statistical and Mathematical Methods in Horse Racing" thoroughly discusses the mathematical and statistical methods in handicapping and betting techniques. Differentiations, combinatorics, normal distribution, kernel smoothing and other mathematical and statistical tools are introduced. The jargons and equations are kept to a minimum so that it is easy to understand for most readers. More than 20 professional programs are freely available to download, which can allow readers to easily apply the methodology introduced in the book.

This book can be divided into three main parts: horse handicapping (Chapters 2-6), wagering (Chapters 7-9) and theories in practices (Chapters 10-11). Chapter 1 will explain why long term gains are possible in horse racing. About horse handicapping, we will start with analysing racing forms in Chapter 2. Other handicapping factors such as weight carried, jockeys, trainers and pedigrees will be discussed in Chapter 3. Some advanced statistical methods, such as chi-square test and kernel smoothing, will be introduced in Chapter 4 to further analyse those handicapping factors discussed in previous chapters. The following two chapters are about probability estimations. In Chapter 5, normal distribution and multinominal logistic regression are introduced in estimating winning probability of each race horse. In Chapter 6, we will talk about some methods in misconceptions in estimating placed probability.

Two main concepts in wagering, Kelly criterion and hedging, will be discussed in Chapters 7 and 8. To hit exotic pools, those theories in combinatorics in Chapter 9 will definitely help the readers. The author will share his experiences in betting syndicate in Chapter 10, and tell you how to be a successful professional horseplayer in the last Chapter.

Some readers may find the mathematics in this book difficult, but the free program will take your pain away and do all the calculations. You can simply apply all the professional formulae by no more than a click, and pick your horses like an expert analyst.

As an awardee in Asian-Pacific Mathematics Olympiad, the author abandoned his career as an actuary and became a key member in a gambling syndicate. This book was reprinted in the 4th edition in Hong Kong, ranked #2 in the best-selling chart in the international Chinese weekly Yazhou Zhoukan, and now available worldwide.

Not By a Long Shot: A Season at a Hard Luck Horse Track This is a gritty, passionate, insider's portrait of the blue-collar side of horse-racing.Once host to turf champions such as Seabiscuit and boisterous throngs of 40,000 spectators, Suffolk Downs, a relentless urban betting factory on the outskirts of Boston, now struggles to survive. "Sufferin' Downs" is where grizzled Thoroughbreds come to end their careers, hopeful jockeys and talented young trainers aspire against daunting odds to begin them, and a small but steadfast legion of diehard fans grinds and gambles in collective desperation against the vagaries of logic, luck and life.Long-time racing writer and aficionado TD Thornton worked at Suffolk Downs for a decade. He was granted behind-the-scenes access to racetrack life usually off limits to the general public, and during the course of one recent racing season, finally decided to write it all down.Contemporary racing literature is full of fawning portrayals of high-profile horses and humans who have achieved success in high profile events. Yet in reality, the sport's most gripping tales come from obscure characters who toil in anonymity at under-the-radar racetracks everywhere: Minimum-wage stable-hands chopping ice from frozen water buckets in pre-dawn winter darkness; grooms who sleep in stalls and cry over sick steeds that aren't worth much more than a saddle; jockeys who starve themselves for the privilege of piloting nothing but losers, and - above all - the fragile yet immeasurably tenacious Thoroughbreds running as fast as they can, as hard as they can, simply because they can."Not by a Long Shot" tells their stories. Organized around the story of a troubled comeback jockey who ends up paralyzing a good friend in a horrific racing accident, it is a deeply textured portrait of an industry where even the best in the business lose 75 percent of the time.
