The "final" Basic PP Programs are generally posted no later than mid-afternoon before the race date. Keep in mind that tracks on the West Coast will normally be three hours behind the East Coast so that will delay their filing of the information accordingly.

Equibase Speed Figures
The Equibase® Speed Figure tells you how fast a horse has been running in its past races with a single number. Its sophisticated algorithms are based on the horse's actual time in combination with other factors, such as the condition of the track. A horse running in stakes company might earn a 90 speed figure, while a horse running in a claiming race might earn a 60. The Equibase® Speed Figure has been equalized for different tracks, distances and conditions, therefore an 80 at Laurel Race Course is the same as an 80 at Philadelphia Park.
Entries are a free product of Equibase and appears in two different formats. The "early entry" file arrives between 72 and 48 hours before the first race and contains the horse, age, sex, weight carried, jockey and the race conditions. The "final" file arrives between 48 and 24 hours before the first race and contains all the above information plus program numbers and morning line odds.
