Detail Report:  Previous Day's Report   Report Explanation   FAQ 
Our detail report is the most information packed report we publish. Most members use this report instead of racing form or track programs to handicap races. This report will cover from basic race and horse information to complicated pace line selection, speed and pace figures. Following is a brief description of what's covered.
In each race, race number, distant, surface and basic condition and purse are covered first. Next we cover the top four in Pace, Speed, Class and Power for quick reference. The wagering menu is covered next followed but any above or bellow average trainer stats worth mentioning.

Next three rows of data will cover horse, trainer and jockey information. horse data are grouped to make it easy on pace, speed, performance and trip handicappers. We cover the last three speed ratings as well as distant, surface, finishing order and comment lines in each race. Pace players will enjoy our sophisticated system of selecting the most probable pace and pace line for each horse in the field. Other information in the a horse's profile are expected speed figure, recent class, form, sire and breeding figures. Finally we cover horses lifetime start and in the money stats for each of distant, off-track, turf and synthetic surfaces.
Jockey and trainer stats include name, win percentage and if any positive or negative change.
After all horses are evaluated, the final listing is sorted according to total points for each horse.
