again Brisnet.com 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.
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.
data goes back three years and is optimized to find
the largest sample size for the race classification
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.
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.
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

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

my mint juleps! It was a wonderful experience."
