Speed Points: Make It Part Of Your Horse Racing System

May 29, 2008
Speed Points is a very simple technique that could be incorporated in your horse racing system. It takes into account the horse's speed performance and the trainer's performance.

Speed Points rates the horse's early speed. This method determines the frontrunners and pace setters of the race, particularly in the early stages, which helps you place your winning bet more accurately. In fact, early-speed horses can give you a 9-2 payment!

How to Compute for Speed Points

The computation for Speed Points is a simple matter of adding points for certain criteria and looking at the positions for the first call for the three most recent races. In fact, your horse racing system is simpler because of the uncomplicated approach to mathematical analysis.

First, assign 1 point to all horses. For sprints, add 1 point for a horse that has achieved first to third place and for a horse within 2 lengths at the first call; add zero if a horse performs otherwise.

And like any component of a horse racing system, there are exceptions to the rule. At 7 furlongs, horses get 1 point if they were first during the first call; and for routes, add nothing.

For routes, add 1 point for a horse that has attained first to third place at the first call; and 1 point if he is within 3 lengths at the first call. Add nothing for any other performance.

Exceptions to the routes rules: in sprints, add 1 point for a horse 1-2-3 during first call and 1 point for a horse within 5 lengths at first call.

If a horse has 7 speed points, add 1 bonus point if he was within a neck of the frontrunner. Conversely, deduct 1 point if a horse fails to beat half the competition at the first call.

How to Interpret

If you have previously grappled with the complex analysis of a horse racing system, you will find that the Speed Points method is in marked contrast. The rating system is basically just 0 to 8, 0 being the lowest and 8 the highest.

Horses rated at 7-8 are reliable speed leaders. Horses with a 6 or 5 rating are often close followers of the frontrunners on the first call, usually at only 2-3 lengths behind.

Horses rated at 4 have acceptable early speed points. They are also reliable speed horses though they are the borderline in speed points. Any rating lower than 4 renders the horse a poor bet, all other things being equal.

Where to Bet

This horse racing system can only guide you into choosing the horse with the best early speed. You still have to consider other aspects of the horse like class and fitness, as well as the jockey and the trainer's past performance.

In fact, bear in mind that races are also equally influenced by weather and ground conditions, handicaps, and the type of race. Take all these human and non-human factors and you can come up with a sure winning bet.

However, if speed is your main consideration, then the Speed Points technique can work well for you.
