Features of Cycles Lite
Performance RatingsThe Performance Ratings are calculated using a complex algorithm, which incorporates final time, pace and class to rate a horse's past efforts. The lower the rating the better, so the best rating a horse can earn is a zero while the worst possible rating is a 50. Races where ratings can't be determined will be marked with an X.
Performance Rating ParThis number is a gauge as to the Performance Rating that will probably need to be garnered to win today's race. The number is normally based on the efforts of today's field over the last six months. In races with lightly raced horses or many first time starters, the number is based on races of today's type and class at today's track over the last two years.
Composite RatingsEach horse's Composite Ratings (total of four) can be found in the report. The ratings are as follows:
A good race for Thoroughbreds is a race in which a horse has an official finish of first, second, or third, or otherwise a finish within two lengths of the winner in a sprint, or in routes, a finish within three lengths of the winner. For Quarter Horse races, a race in which a horse has an official finish of first, second, or third, or otherwise in races less than or equal to 440 yards, a finish within one length of the winner, or in races longer than 440 yards, a finish within two lengths of the winner.
