>> 3 FREE Days of Quick Play PPs
Make it a September to remember. Download three FREE race dates of unlimited Quick Play past performances. This limited time offer applies to both Quick Play versions (the Page Savers and the Full edition).
Quick Play PPs provide handicappers with a unique blend of analysis and race data. The analysis can be found in the positive and negative comments section for each horse. This commentary provides handicappers with an instant snapshot of a horse's current form and suitability for today's race. It allows you to easily evaluate any horse by just reading the comments.
To further illustrate this point, view Lady Joanne's extensive positive comments for the Alabama Stakes. (see below)
Based on the comments alone it was easy to deduce the eventual Alabama winner was sitting on big race. What may be more of a surprise was Lady Joanne's solid 9/2 odds. In a short field of seven, that's a square price on a horse in good form.
For many, the Quick Play analysis is all they need. However if you wish to dig a little deeper, don't worry, Quick Play PPs will more than meet your needs. With up to ten running lines, comprehensive workouts, five points of call and exclusive BRIS data (Prime Power, Pace & Speed ratings and Race Shapes), Quick Play PPs blow away the competition.
Don't miss your chance to get $30 of Quick Play Performances for FREE. Offer good for any three race dates in September.
I like speed figures and use the BRIS Speed ratings in my handicapping. That said, I have often questioned whether slow-paced races can ever earn big speed figures. And after this year's Blue Grass S. (G1), it's more of a question than racing over Polytrack.
Twenty-one years ago, many handicappers liked Theatrical (Ire) in the Breeders' Cup Turf (G1). One reason why was that his chief rival, Manila, had just earned a relatively slow speed figure in the Turf Classic (G1).
Manila's problem was not that he was slower than Theatrical but that he came out of a very slow-paced race where the first six furlongs were run in 1:16 and change. They finished up in 1:11, but that only resulted in the 1 1/2 miles being run in 2:27 and change; thus, the low speed figure. Pace might not always make the race, but pace certainly makes the speed figure. The simple fact is that fast-paced races tend to yield higher speed figures than slow-paced races. BRIS now gives you Race Shapes that highlight how fast the leaders are going. Combined with the BRIS Pace figures, you can quickly gauge the pace scenario of previous races.
By all accounts, the Blue Grass was slower than normal. The winner, DOMINICAN (El Corredor), only earned a BRIS Speed figure of 98. But with a first half run in :51.46, what else would you expect?
Correctly predicted by ESPN's Randy Moss on their telecast, there was no pace to this field and all the riders decided to take back at the start leaving Edgar Prado aboard Teuflesberg (Johannesburg) on the lead. Nobody wanted the lead, and the reason was the belief that you can't win at Keeneland going two turns if you go to the front. BRIS Track Bias Stats reinforce this notion, with only one front-end winner from 18 races going two turns over the Polytrack.
With the field tightly packed, they hit six furlongs in 1:16.65, with only about seven lengths covering the seven horses. The running got serious when they turned for home, and Teuflesberg held on grimly. Zanjero (Cherokee Run) ducked to the inside, Street Sense (Street Cry [Ire]) was battling to his outside and Great Hunter (Aptitude) was trying to split horses with a furlong to go.
Teuflesberg veered out inside the furlong pole, forcing Corey Nakatani to take up aboard 9-5 second choice Great Hunter. Street Sense was battling gamely and looked like he would get up, but here came Dominican on the far outside under a furious drive by Rafael Bejarano. Four horses hit the wire and Dominican had his nose down on the outside of Street Sense. Zanjero finished a head back in third and Teuflesberg held on for fourth. Great Hunter checked in fifth, less than two lengths behind the winner despite a very rough trip.
