How do I use Horse Info handicapping view to win?

  • Power Rating is a single number that reflects a horse's abilities in speed, class and pace, and factors in track-based data like what has been winning in recent weeks.
  • Average Speed is a way to gauge how fast a horse has been in previous races. A higher speed figure typically means better quality fields and higher levels of performance: for example, a horse with a 110 speed figure is likely running against stakes competition vs. the lesser competitive 80 a horse in a claiming event may earn.
  • Average Speed at the Distance is a useful tool for horses who might be getting back to their best distance.
  • High Speed gives a good indication of  which race horses are more likely to perform well based on past race history.
  • Average Class is calculated using speed ratings of the individual runners to project the finishing time based on the last six months of the specific race's entrants.
  • Last Class is the class level of the horse's last start and can be a useful reference tool comparing the caliber of horses they faced in prior efforts.
