TrackMaster® PPs assigns a class rating (CR) to today's races and all races in which today's starters have raced.
A top class (stakes) race might have a class rating of 100; a $10,000 claiming race might have a CR of 70. By comparing the CR of today's race and the CRs for each horse's recent races you will know if the horse is moving up or down in class - that is, if he is in an easier or more difficult race than he has been in recently.
The calculation of class rating includes a weight for the track so you can compare class ratings between races at different tracks. An 80 at The Meadowlands is equivalent to an 80 at Pompano Park and an 80 at Balmoral. A horse that has been successful in races with a CR of 90 at Yonkers should be competitive in a race with a CR of 90 at The Meadowlands.
Speed ratings (SR) tell you how fast a horse has been running in its recent races. It is based on the horse's actual time and other factors, such as the condition of the track.
A horse who races in top class races might earn a SR of 100 for a good performance; a $10,000 claimer might earn a 60 for an average performance.
Like the class rating, the speed rating is weighted for different tracks, distances and conditions. A horse that runs consistently in the 80s at one track should be competitive with horses that run in the 80s at another track. You can spot horses that have run higher numbers and higher classes and especially horses that have done their best work at today's distance and on today's surface.
