Since we introduced the BRIS Prime Power Rating, many of our members have incorporated this potent number into their handicapping methodology. Horseplayers have been raving about this unique rating because of its uncanny ability to identify strong "key" plays as well as eliminate false favorites.
Now, Brisnet.com has made it easier for all members to utilize this number. But, before we get to that exciting news, here's a primer on this rating:
Just what is...Prime Power?
Based on a lengthy study of more than 50,000 races, the top Prime Power runner won 31-percent of the time! The results become more impressive when any dirt runner is at a significant advantage based on Prime Power:
Now, how would you like to easily identify bogus favorites? Consider the results of our study: dirt favorites that were not ranked first on Prime Power (false favorites) won only 27% of the time and returned -.51 for every $2 wagered. However, favorites which were on top on Prime Power won 38% with a -.26 ROI.
Skeptical of Prime Power's effectiveness? Listen to recent Tampa Bay handicapping contest winner Alan Burnett: "The Prime Power Rating hit seven of 11 races. Selecting a Prime Power horse is what got me over the hump. I wagered $500 to win on him and he paid $10.80! Also, I hit four of five races in the preliminary rounds, and I couldn't have done it without the BRIS info in the Ultimate PPs."
In this recent contest, Alan started the day with a $1,000 bankroll and ended with $3,004. That earned him the $1,500 grand prize and a free berth in the $100,000 Penn National World Series of Handicapping, to be held in October.

About 15 years ago I began following the great sport of horseracing. As most novices, I soon realized that I was losing far more money than I was winning at the racetrack. It also dawned on me that each day new people were coming to the track and also putting their two dollar bets into vast pools of money. I thought of how many terrible golfers flooded courses daily and kept coming back with no hope of ever improving their game. The golf courses still took their money and so did friends that took part in any friendly side bets.
This motivated me to learn as much about horseracing as humanly possible, so that I was the one taking in all of the uninformed horseplayers money.
One of the first major steps was purchasing the Track Stats and Maiden Stats books from BRIS. Finding and using trainer stats and sire information that not all knew about helped me to turn my losses into profits. Not long after that, BRIS started publishing Past Performances online. Their pace figures were another great tool that helped me further in making money. Then BRIS began offering the Ultimate Past Performances Plus Summary. This became a tremendous help in condensing the time used to look up the never ending fields of maiden races that fill a daily card. The Ultimate PP's included all the information that took much longer to find using the previously mentioned books.
With all of this knowledge at my finger tips, I soon set out to accomplish a goal I set for myself. When I turned into a professional handicapper/gambler in 1998, I wanted to be able to say that I handicapped and cashed the only ticket in a pari-mutuel pool at a major track. That day came on November 5, 1999. I played a $360 Pick-6 ticket at Bay Meadows using only the Ultimate PP's with Track Bias and Summary. I originally was going to play only a $64 ticket, but there had been a carryover of more than $100,000 and I wanted to make sure I hit a piece of it. I could only guess that not many people used the BRIS PP's that day, because I cashed the only ticket in the country for over $197,000. In five of the races, each horse that won was rated 1st or 2nd in either the Race Summary column or the Prime Power. The other winner was ranked 3rd in both. What is even more amazing is that my original $64 ticket would have still taken the whole pool!
"As recently as February 11, 2001, lightning struck again. I've had great success following Santa Anita and using BRIS PPs to cash in more than a few Pick 6's and Place Pick 9's. I made a relatively moderate play of $64 in the Place Pick 9 that day after again only using the BRIS Ultimate PP's with Summary. To my surprise, I held the only ticket worth $34,695.30! In six of the races, the 1st or 2nd ranked horses in the Race Summary column or the Prime Power hit. In two other races it was the 3rd ranked horse that won. The only race that I deemed "unhandicappable" did a lower ranked horse win. I fortunately used four horses in this leg that must have helped in making it the only ticket in the country.
I'm a definite believer in the information I receive from BRIS. As more and more people discover that money can be made using superior information, it will be harder to have any more "sweeper" tickets.
