What Is TrackMaster Harness Pro?
I. Welcome To TrackMaster Harness Pro
TrackMaster HarnessPro is the most unique and powerful harness handicapping tool available on the market today. It's a combination of all the features found in a sophisticated handicapping software application with the simplicity of a printed advanced handicapping report conveniently presented as a web page based, all-in-one handicapping utility. Using the ratings and comparisons provided by TrackMaster can greatly enhance your handicapping. There are many exciting statistical insights just waiting to be explored while handicapping your favorite track. A race card contains all the information for one day's races at one track. Individual races on the card can be opened by either clicking on the specific row from the race list located on the initial opening screen or by choosing the race from the permanent sliding menu located at the top of every screen. Once inside a race, the category menu bar shows all the different sections of handicapping information you can navigate to.
II. How It Works
You need to register an account with TrackMaster. Once done, when you download a race card for TrackMaster HarnessPro, the following categories of information are available to explore:
The race summary category has three sections to explore. The "Race List" is the very first screen you will see after downloading a race card. It presents a quick overview of all the races on today's card and has links to download printed past performance programs at no extra charge. The "Horse/Driver/Trainer List" section is an alphabetical index of all the participants on today's card. The "Post Stats" section takes a closer statistical look at the advantages and disadvantages of the post positions at today's track.
We offer three different versions of the TrackMaster Platinum Past Performances for your convenience (at no extra charge, included with your TrackMaster HarnessPro subscription)
The snapshot analysis category has three sections to explore. The "Quick Overview" is the very first screen you will see when you open up a race on the card. It presents an accumulation of some of the key information and stats found throughout the various categories. The "Driver/Trainer Overview" provides a quick look at the driver and trainer associated with the horse. The "Trouble/Layoff Overview" section provides a summarized analysis of the horses propensity to get into trouble either by breaking stride or racing parked as well as a look at how horses perform after certain amounts of inactivity.
The power rating analysis category shows the exclusive TrackMaster power ratings and provides the ability for you to create up to 5 different sets of your own custom power ratings using any of 15 various handicapping weights.
The speed/class/races analysis category has three sections to explore. The "Summary Stats" provides a quick, summarized look at speed ratings and class ratings. The "Last 5 Races" section allows you to compare recent performances of the horses in their last five starts. The "Last 5 Details" section provides an even closer detailed comparison of the last five starts, complete with links to result charts and race replays.
The pace analysis category is designed to help determine the style in which and exactly how fast horses perform at designated stages of a race. This information is presented in two different sections called, "Pace Style & Figures". The pace style information computes the horse’s typical running position at each of the four calls of a race, while the pace figures information calculates fractional speed ratings for each of the segments of a race.
The driver analysis category has four sections to explore. The "Summary Stats" provides a statistical look at the drivers across various time frames. The "Handicapping Stats" section looks at how the drivers perform with certain types of horses and situations. The "Combinations" section will take a closer look at how drivers, trainers and horses all perform when they partner together. The "Post Position" section will analyze how a driver has statistically performed when in the same post position as today.
The trainer analysis category has three sections to explore. The "Summary Stats" provides a detailed statistical look at the trainers across various time frames. The "Handicapping Stats" section looks at how the trainers perform with certain types of horses and situations. The "Combinations" section will take a closer look at how drivers, trainers and horses all perform when they partner together. The "Angles" section looks at how the trainers perform when certain scenarios, called handicapping angles, present themselves.
The records/earnings analysis category has three sections to explore. The "All Tracks" section displays a horse’s performance record over certain periods of time at all tracks. The "This Track" section displays a horse’s performance record over certain periods of time at today's track only. The "Best Times" section highlights a horse's fastest lifetime marks over certain time periods and tracks.
The pedigree analysis category has three sections to explore. The "All Breeding" section gives all the details related to the horse's pedigree, as well as current owner, breeder and various sale information. The "Sire Stats" section will go into detail on the the historical performance of the sire's foals. The "Dam Stats" section will go into detail on the historical performance of the dam's foals.
The notes analysis category allows you to enter in personal comments for each race and horse on the card. Notes for races are saved only for the current track and date, while notes for horses are archived by track, date and race for future reference. You may have up to 10 saved notes for each horse.
The quick picks section provides basic win, place, show and exotic selections based on risk preferences.
TrackMaster HarnessPro allows you to sort all columns of information in the data tables to help identify the horses with the highest or lowest values. You can sort columns either ascending or descending . Click the column header to sort in the default direction, then click the column header a second time to sort in the opposite direction.
Clicking on the print icon found at the top of each data table will print out the category of information currently on the screen. If you have columns sorted it will print in that sorted order. Choose whether you want the entire race card (all races) or just the opened race to print. To print an individual race you must first open that race.
Standouts in today's race are highlighted for many statistics in virtually all sub-categories of each handicapping section. You will see the program number as well as the name of the horse, driver or trainer that has been chose as a top performer along with the specific stat that earned them this honor.
Many columns/rows of information can be viewed in a graphical format. Select the column/row of information you want to graph by clicking on the button at the end of the column/row. The graph up above the data table will automatically change. Place your mouse over the data on the graphs more more details.
