Once again has taken past performances to the next level with the addition of detailed favorite success rate information in the Ultimate PPs. The new enhancement includes the win percentage, in-the-money percentage and $2 ROI of favorites for the race type classification, as well as the average field size and median $2 win payoff.

To help you determine what kind of prices typically come in for this type of race, BRIS also provides stats on the percentage of winners under 5-1, between 5.1-1 and 9.9-1, and 10-1 or greater. The data goes back three years and is optimized to find the largest sample size for the race classification in question.

In the first example at Hollywood Park, one can see that the public choice has fared extremely well in maiden special weight events at six furlongs, winning 50% of the races (actually producing a flat bet profit) and in the money 90% of the time. Only one winner from 20 races, 5%, has paid greater than 10-1 odds. In other words, this is typically a very formful type of race and not one where you should be focusing on long shots.

The Philadelphia Park (race 7) example is very similar, with favorites winning at a high rate and again producing a flat bet profit. Only 4% of the races at this level have been won by long shots with 83% of the winners paying under 5-1 odds. Again, this has proven to be a formful level.

The second Philadelphia Park example (race 4) displays a contrasting situation. Here only 16% of the $7,500 claimers are being won by the public choice with just 58% of all  winners paying under 5-1. This is the type of race where uncovering mid-price runners and longshots can prove to be a very profitable situation.

The new features are available in all three versions of the Ultimate PDF Past Performances at

NEW TRACK DIAGRAMS has also added the track diagrams for each race in all PDF Past Performances.* Now you can easily see the start and finish of a race, helping you determine which horses may be helped or burdened by their post position draw. This is especially useful in simulcast races where one may be unfamiliar with the configuration of the track.

The first contest begins Saturday, July 23. There will be 8 mandatory races in each single day event. Winning is based on a hypothetical $2 win/place wager on each selection with caps of 25-1 (Win) and 12-1 (Place) respectively.

I love the products!"

Another outstanding performance came in the week-two contest when Leo Haukkala, of Port Hadlock, WA came out on top by selecting an impressive 7 winners and $102 in ROI! A retired Navy veteran and Maitre'd, Haukkala claims to have developed his own "Bet to Win" system that he uses regularly at the track. The system certainly worked for him this time! He will join Catlett on the team in Las Vegas next January.

Completing the team heading to Las Vegas is week-three grand prize winner Mike Rogers of Tulsa, OK. Roger started fast when he hit the first four races on the card! Overall, Rogers selected 7 winners and 7 places for an ROI of $144.60.

Congratulations to Elizabeth Brown, the Grand Prize Winner of the Race of the Day Handicapping Contest! Brown won an all expense paid trip for two to the 131st running of the Kentucky Derby.

"You can't imagine how surprised and excited I was to find out that I'd won the trip to the Derby! Just playing the Race of the Day Handicapping Contest was a fun experience," explained Brown. "It familiarized me with the races and horses, and I got to pat myself on the back when I made the right picks. Before I make the big bets at Churchill downs, I'm glad I'll be able to research the horses & odds through Brisnet. I look forward to watching the races, drinking the juleps, wearing my hat, and winning LOTS of money. Thanks again for this fantastic trip!"

The Race of the Day Handicapping Contest is now offering a grand prize trip for two to the 2005 Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships at Belmont Park! The contest features FREE Past Performances for each day's race and the top 50 players each week and/or month will receive an additional 50 bonus entries. Each day you play, you receive a free entry in the grand prize drawing, which will be held in September. For your FREE registration and official rules visit

"We had a great time, and really appreciate all that Brisnet did for us," told Brown after going on the trip. "I did place a $2 bet to win on Giacomo, which paid about $105, enough to pay off my other bets and my mint juleps! It was a wonderful experience."
