Thanks North, Your welcome , maybe it will help somebody, good Luck !
Nice stats, smartyslew!
Question: How does one estimate closely late pace figures for a horse like RYW when he was geared down.
Is there a method by which to do that?
Because obviously I can't go with what my Brisnet PPs say.
I use my eyeballs and look for a replay to refresh my memory if I haven't noted it ,in this case I did note it i
even tho I'll never forget this ride. I noted also in his gallop out he was 20 lengths ahead of anybody else, so many
little things for ones DD. I save some dd for myself, any data I put out, It's nice to get feed back,
you said "Because obviously I can't go with what my Brisnet PPs say. "
I can't either, I do dd from the Race chart for the race. not from bris and note the tidbits from the chart
and then I watch the replay and look for highlighted notes from the chart and most of the time I don't
put that in public. My data is for others to look at and choose to either run with it or do more of their DD,
from it. I will do highlights from the charts on some data like bumped at start, etc after the draw with
a full field.
That's fine. Understand.
I wasn't addressing the question *directly* to you but thanks for sharing.........
I am/was wondering how other people do it. How do you come up with a figure when there is none that fits into the "publishing" mode on PPs.
It's like my comment about mud/slop. People only look at races. Horses who are stabled at tracks in barns where it rains cats n' dogs work and gallop in slop very frequently. PPs don;t tell you that. It's uber important, as is their breeding for such a task, even if they don't barn where there is a lot of rain.
I'm sorry I thought you were talking about things like late pace and geared down not on the PP's,
or similar like bumped at start, track bias, bumped at turn or 8 wide coming home,
The PP's are usually for once on the track.
