5.  What are “Rankings”?

Rankings are presented in a scrolling window for the Track that you select under the “Rankings” button.  Once your track is selected, a calendar is presented with dates highlighted in green and red for dates that track is racing.  Green highlights indicate racing days with final data.  Red highlights indicate racing days with early data.  Rankings are then viewed once the date you want is selected.

Rankings are the handicapped orders of finish that we provide for all races at all active major tracks, every racing day.  These rankings are presented in  a table, listed in the Order of Finish for each horse with the predicted winner at top of the list and all others in descending order.  The Racing Program numbers for each horse are show in a column next to the order of finish.  The computed handicapping weight scores for each horse are shown along with a conversion to a scale of 100 of the handicapping score with the top horse being 100.  Speed and Beyer ratings for the fastest horses in the race may be seen for each race by clicking a button just above this table in the ranking window.

Please note that there is a “Your Short List” table provided at the bottom of the ranking window.  Your favorite horses may be added to a “Your Short List” table by clicking the green + box shown beside each horse’s name in the ranking list.   This Short List keeps track of your favorite horses for you across racing program for that day.  Both the Rankings table and the Your Short List table  may be printed out using a print button/icon top right of each table or may be emailed to you using the email icon.

6.  What are “STATS”?

We keep track of how well our ranking Algorithm “Albert” performs for each track.  We do this on a monthly and weekly basis.  These  “STATS” (Statistics) are accessed by clicking the STATS button in the navigation bar.  STATS may be sorted by the column labels across the top:  i.e.,  track name/alpha sort, or by percent in the money, percent win, percent place or percent show, percent exacta, etc.  STATS are used in our Road-to-the-Money system in order to select a track that has a high percentage of being in the money.

7.  What information is available for horses in a race?

Above each race, you will find the race number. Next to the race number you will find a link for [Show Top 3 Only] and a link for [Fastest Speed/Beyer Ratings]. If you click on [Fastest Speed/Beyer Ratings] at the top of the box it will show the type of race, including the distance of the race, for example, 5.5 Furlongs MAIDEN CLAIMING Purse $ 18,800 For 3,4 & 5 Year Olds. At this time we do not show the type of track surface; something we will be adding at a later time. Under the type of race you will find the top 3 horses with the fastest Speed rating and the top 3 horses with the fastest Beyer rating in the last 6 months. Under the speed rating, you will find the horses with the fastest workouts at the distances shown, again in the last 6 months. All this information is for the horses in that race. If you go back to our ranking information and you click on a horse’s name, you will get a display of the workouts for the horse you selected. If there is a horse that you want to keep in your short list, you click on the little green plus sign next to the horse and that will enter that horse in the short list, so you can create a list of all the horses that you are considering.

8.  What tracks do I get when I sign up for a Premium Membership

You get all major tracks in North America, all races, every racing day.

9.  What is the Road-to-the-Money System?

The Road-to-the-Money System is unique to HorseRaceAdvantage.com.   In this system we use our “STATS” % in the money and then our “Rankings” gap analysis to first select a track and then a race in which to pick horses that will be in the money and help us come out ahead at the track.  Once the race has been picked using this system the customer may use the rankings as they are presented or other information to finalize their picks for that race.   In El’s weekly Bet-with-El, she remains 70% in the money with her picks and continues to come out ahead since our roll out in July 2012, using this system.   Customers who sign up for our Free Membership receive our free Road-to-the-Money video series.

10.  What are the Free Pick 3’s and when are they posted?

The three free Pick 3′s are randomly chosen from our daily rankings and are always posted a day ahead.  In general, the free picks (a race and three “Pick 3s”) are updated some time after 4:00pm eastern standard time each day. At that time the free picks are posted for the following day.
The first race at most tracks start around noon local or a little after that. Many people figure out their wagering selections either in the morning of the race day or the evening before race day. So, if you looked at our website before noon of race day, for example., Tuesday, you would see the Tuesday selections. If you looked at our website that same day after 4:00pm EST, you will most likely see the Wednesday selections.

As a Premium Subscriber, you will see both the early (without program #) and final (with program #) selections of all major tracks at all times.  In other words, if it were Tuesday, the Tuesday rankings would not disappear on you when Wednesday rankings became available.   And as a Premium Subscriber, you can log in and log out as frequent as you want and have access to all tracks that we support in a single session or multiple sessions.

11.  How do I place bets on HorseRaceAdvantage.com?

We provide links on our website to affiliate wagering websites.  Our Affiliates, TwinSpires, Bet America and TVG are three of the top wagering/betting websites where you may go and set up a betting account.   Just click the logo/advertisement on our home page for one of these Affiliates.

12.  Does the ranking calculation use the Beyer figures or Bris figures?

We use the Daily Racing Form (DRF) Past Performance data in our ranking calculations and Beyer Ratings, which are unique to DRF, are provided as a part of that information.

We use Beyer Ratings in our ranking algorithm, Albert, because Beyer Ratings normalize speed across all the tracks. One can handicap horses from different tracks in the same race, even though track conditions at the different tracks that horses ran were different when they raced. It is one of the more reliable figures when comparing horses in the same race. However, we tend to give more credence to Beyer ratings that were obtained more recently, i.e., in the last 6 months of the current year.

We also tend to give more credence to horses that have improving Beyer ratings rather than horses whose Beyer ratings seem to get lower each time they race. A horse with consistent Beyer ratings is also a horse that is easier to handicap, because he or she is more likely to run a race with a similar Beyer rating

13.  Why is there missing data when I click on the “Fastest Speed/Beyer Ratings” link?

If a track runs thoroughbred races and other kinds of horse races (like quarter horse races) on the same day there will be missing data. Beyer ratings are exclusive to thoroughbreds.

14.  How does HorseRaceAdvantage.com help learn about handicapping?

Our handicapper in chief, El Gianoulis, has utilized her expert handicapping and analysis skills and her many years of handicapping experience and horse ownership to bring you a video series on handicapping.  This “Handicapping, Members Only” set of 11 videos goes through the major factors that are considered in handicapping a thoroughbred race.  El has also videoed her two part weekly Bet-with-El  analysis.   In these videos  in Bet-with-El Part 1 FREE, she first goes through steps 1 and 2 of our Road-to-the-Money System where she selects a track using the STATS and a race using Gap Analysis.   In Bet-with-El Part 2 PREMIUM, she goes through a horse-by-horse detailed analysis for picking one or more horses for that race and a wagering strategy for those horses.  These Bet-with-El Part 1 FREE and Bet-with-El Part 2 PREMIUM are available to demonstrate handicapping and the use of our Road-to-the-Money System.

When our Free Memberships sign up, they are sent a free five video series that talks about our Road-to-the-Money System.
