A) As you can see this section starts with the program # and horse name. The next item is the purse for today's race ($48k in our example horse above). Next comes the distance of today's race in furlongs (10F) then track (AQU), race number, date, and finally we have the PRO AVERAGE rating (95 in the example). The PRO AVERAGE is a simple but powerful rating. It is the average of the best 2 out of 3 PRO ratings for each horse. You will read more about this exciting new rating below.
B) and C) The first item in this section is (Days). These are the days between each race and/or workout. In the example above we see #4 JUDGE'S CASE had a 6f workout 3 days ago and a race 13 days prior to that then another race 22 days prior to that, etc. Next you will see the track (AQU) and the track condition (MY) for muddy. (FT) is for fast, (SY) is for sloppy, (GD) is for good. For turf races (FM) is firm, (YL) is yielding, (TF) is good and (SF) is soft. Under the (Workouts) item is the distance of the horse's workouts. If he ran a bullet work, which is fastest of the day/distance/track, you will see a double plus (++). If the work was not a bullet but was ranked among the top 20th percentile you will see a single plus (+). Under (Purse) is the purse for each of the last 3 races he has run in. Next is the distance (Dis) of those races (in furlongs) then the track surface (S). The (D) is for dirt, (d) is for inner dirt, (T) is for turf and (t) is for inner turf. The next 4 items are 2ndC, Strc, Finish and FP and they apply to the horse's last 3 starts. The (2ndC) is the horse's beaten lengths at the 2nd call, (Strc) is the beaten lengths for stretch call, (Finish) for beaten lengths at the finish. If these numbers have the negative symbol (-) it indicates beaten lengths, if you see the plus symbol (+) it means the horse was in the lead . The numbers following the (+) or (-) is the number of lengths in 100ths. Examples: - 4.75 means the horse was 4 & 3/4 lengths behind the leader . A + 2.25 means the horse was in the lead by 2 & 1/4 lengths, etc, etc. (FP) is the horse's finish position in the race. A 1 means he won the race, 2 means he finished second, 5 means he finished 5th, etc. Now we come to the good stuff, the PRO rating the horse is given for the race.

The PRO rating takes into consideration the following: final time, track variants and pars, weight, wide trips, troubled trips, pace, post position, quality of competition and more. Why is all this important?. Let's set up an example . For horse A and B we will say all things are equal as far as actual final time, track, distance and track variants:

HORSE (A) ran a ground saving trip from post 1. He clocked a 1/2 mile in :45.2 and carried 108lbs under a bug boy. He clocked a 6f finish time in 1:10.3
HORSE (B) started from tough post 10. He clocked the 1/2 mile split in a sizzling :44.3. He had a bad trip going 6 wide on the turn then steadied in traffic while carrying 123lbs. He also clocked a 6f finish in 1:10.3

Now which horse ran a superior race? HORSE B obviously and our PRO rating will indicate such. Horse B would get a much higher PRO rating than HORSE A even though they ran the identical final time on an identical track, distance and variant. These differences make more of an impact as the distances get longer. For example in 2 turn races a horse could be hung out wide on both turns and that high weight becomes more of a factor at the route distance. Also a very fast early pace can really burn a horse out. Conversely a horse loose on the lead loping along setting soft split times gets an easy trip.

D) section has a series of ratings as follows: (RA) stands for RECENT ACTION . Most horses will get an RA rating of 0 because of our strict criteria placed on this figure. Any horse that has an RA rating (80 will be minimum) should be considered in good form by recency standards. If you like a longshot and he has an RA rating of 80 or more it could become a HUGE PLAY!. (Winl) is a rating that indicates how game a horse is in his career. If he likes to win he'll get a high Winl number. (Winc) is the same as Winl only it looks at current year only. If a horse has a higher Winc than Winl it probably means he is having a career top year. The (Ftime) rating indicates how well the horse's final times have been this year and the last 3 races. The (Mud) number indicates how well a horse can run over a wet track based on pedigree for handling wet tracks and his past efforts on wet tracks. The (Turf) number will only be displayed if today's race is scheduled for the turf. It is based on pedigree for the turf and his past accomplishments in turf races. (Dist) is a figure that indicates how well the horse likes today's distance. (Track) number indicates how well the horse likes today's track. (Trainer) is a special trainer rating. If this rating has a ($) next to it this measn the trainer has scored with horses at big prices recently. If you see a (+) it means the trainer is one of the best and wins at a high percentage. (Jockey) is a special rating for the horse's jockey today. The (Angle$) item is very specialized. We have hand picked and made a list of some money making angles. If a horse has a 1 it means he fits the criteria for 1 of these angles, 2 means he fits 2, 3 means he fits 3, etc. Many horses will have a 0 so pay close attention to those that have a 1,2,3,4,5, etc. Finally the (CASH) rating is a figure made from weighted variables of all figures in section D). CASH stands for (Comprehensive Assessment of Statistics and History). It is comprised of many factors that horseplayers have a hard time quantifying so you will see a good share of longshot winners with a high (CASH) rating.
