TrackMaster® has developed TrackMaster® Power Ratings ["TPRs"].
A TPR is a single number assigned to each horse running in a race. It reflects the horse's strength in
three measurable areas: speed, class and pace. Furthermore, the relative weighting of these three factors
is different for each track, and is determined by what has been winning in the recent past at each track
(the track profile).
Equibase Speed Figure
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 110 , while a horse running in a claiming
race might earn an 80. The Equibase® Speed Figure has been equalized
for different tracks, distances and conditions, therefore
a 100 at Laurel Race Course is the same as a 100 at Philadelphia
Points of Call and Fraction Times
Full points of call as well as additional fractional time data is available for every race.
Video Race Replays
Races denoted with the video camera include
available Replays which are available to view if you have a Replays Subscription.

The date link in each past performance provides free access to Historical Charts.
The TrackMaster® Class Ratings are based on projected finishing time based on the
speed ratings of the individual horses coming into each race. The algorithms that generate the Class
Ratings use the last six months of speed ratings from all of the entrants in a race, and make the best
possible predication as to the winning time, and can best be described as a relative rating for a
GIVEN FIELD OF HORSES in a given race at a given track.
The TrackMaster® Pace Ratings are basically the
horse's "Speed Figure" various points in the
race and are available for all Thoroughbred and Arabian races. Based on
the horse's actual time and other conditions, such as track
condition, these figures allow you to compare a horse's general performance
at the early, middle and final stages of the race.
The run-up distance indicates the distance (in feet) from the starting gate to the point where timing of the race began. This new run-up distance is being listed in superscript after the distance of the race in Equibase® Full Past Performance Programs and results charts.
Temporary rail distance is the number of feet that a temporary railing is placed from the permanent inner rail on a turf course. A temporary rail placement is used to help avoid wear and tear on the course.
Track Bias Style
For the bias version of the Platinum PP, the Bias is one of the following:
F+ Strong Front - The track surface gave Front-runners a big advantage
F Front - The track surface gave Front-runners an advantage
S+ Strong Stalk - The track surface gave Stalkers a big advantage
S Stalk - The track surface gave Stalkers an advantage
T+ Strong Trail - The track surface gave Trailers a big advantage
T Trail - The track surface gave Trailers an advantage
