Explanation of the Ultimate Race Summary
(see separate explanation for the Track Bias section)

The Ultimate Race Summary ranks horses by various categories. In the first section, horses are ranked by the SPEED FIGURE under AVG DIST/SURF (Average Distance Surface) category. A speed figure surrounded by asterisks indicates two or more races occurred within the last 90 days at or near today's distance and surface. If there are no asterisks or parentheses, there was only one race at or near today's distance within the last 90 days and the pace and speed figures are for that race. If the speed figure appears in parentheses, there was no race at or near today's distance within the last 90 days.

Let's go all the way to the left of this section and start at the beginning of the line. If you printed the "p" file for this track, you will have the program number, the horse's name and the track's morning line odds. Then medication and equipment is shown. (L=Lasix, b=blinkers on). Next, you see DAYS SINCE L/R, Days Since Last Race. Dots after this stat indicate that the horse's last race was the first or second start after a layoff. Next is the horse's RUNNING STYLE and EARLY SPEED POINTS (see the Track Bias Explanation page for more detailed information). Note the + or ++ if they appear. A + indicates a better than average statistic and ++ indicates extreme success.

Following the aforementioned Average Distance Speed section, is the AVG RACE RTNG, (Average Race Rating), using races only at or near today's distance and surface. BRIS Race Ratings rate a field numerically not on the race classification itself, but on the actual horses that start. Next is the horse's BEST PACE which are not from one race but would reflect that runner's best E1 pace, best E2 pace, and best speed figure at today's distance grouping (sprint or route) and surface (dirt or turf). The FINAL SPEED section shows only the final speed figure for the last three races back beginning with the most recent. A period following the number indicates that race was at today's distance. ACL is Average Competitive Level which is a rating based on the Race Ratings when finishing in the top four. Parentheses indicate a rating that was not at today's distance or surface. There is a further explanation of the ACL in the Library of our website. RCG SPD AVG is Racing Speed Average. This average is for today's distance category only. The R1 R2 R3 section is the BRIS Race Ratings for the last three races back. R1 is first race back, R2 is second race back, etc. This stat shows you if a horse has been facing tougher company than the others in today's race. MUD SPD is the horse's best speed rating on the mud.

The pedigree stats section has the Sire's Mud Win percentage and the sire's percentage of first time starters that have won. In turf races, a sire's turf win percentage replaces the first time starter percentage. Next is the SPI or Sire Production Index (1.00 is average. An SPI of 2.00 indicates the sire's runners earn twice the average). The DPI is the Dam's Production Index (again 1.00 is average). SIRE AWD is the Average Winning Distance of that sire's runners. Next is the Dam Sire's Average Winning Distance. An AWD of 6.0 or less indicates a sprinter, an AWD of 6.7 to 7.1 indicates a middle distance horse and an AWD over 7.5 indicates stamina.

Moving to the bottom of the page, you will find seven columns. The first is SPEED LAST RACE, which is the last race regardless of distance or surface. Next is BACK SPEED, which is this runner's best speed rating at or near today's distance in the last year. CURRENT CLASS is a rating based on a horse's recent starts with more emphasis on the most recent starts at or near today's distance and surface. AVERAGE CLASS LAST 3 is a straight average BRIS Class Rating for the last three starts regardless of distance. PRIME POWER is the horse's Prime Power rating. The Prime Power rating combines several handicapping factors to identify contenders in each race. For more detailed information, see the Ultimate PP's Explanation. EARLY PACE LAST RACE and LATE PACE LAST RACE reflect the last race regardless of distance or surface.

All BRIS ratings and figures are based on actual performance. These statistics, along with the Ultimate Past Performances, can be very crucial to your overall handicapping analysis and give you the edge over the general public.
