The first and only comprehensive book on dosage from its creator, Steve
Originator of the contemporary Dosage System, Steve Roman has, at last,
written the definitive book on the subject.
Although originally devised as a breeding theory, Dosage has evolved into a
pedigree classification technique used by owners, breeders and handicappers to
buy, breed and bet on the best.
Roman's research and development of the roster of chefs-de-race,
those prepotent sires that have shaped the breed, has changed the way
Thoroughbreds are bred, bought and sold.
Here is just some of the data you'll find in this comprehensive book:
- The history of Dosage
