Use Race Profile Statistics to Help You Handicap

There are several tools on BETMIX that you can use to help you cash tickets, including the Race Profile Statistics Box.  Often times its hard to find this sort of data, but with BETMIX it’s all right in front of you and presented in an easy to read graphical form.  The categories are broken down into three features: Winning Post, Winning Payout, and Races.  Lets take a look at how to use these tools.

The Race Profile Statistics Box


In every single race view in Betmix (Today’s Races, Historical Races, MixMaker) you will see the Race Profile statistics on the main screen just below the BetPad. All of the information in the Race Profile is based on similar runnings of the same race type at the track you are looking at.  In the above example the data shown is for the last 27, 8.5F dirt Grade 1 races at Santa Anita. You will see information about the winning posts for that race type, average payouts for winners, the most accurate factors for Win, Place, Show and Accuracy and the ability to sort those by Category (Speed, Pace, Earnings, etc). You can click the Race Profile Report button and that will launch a report that grabs those last 27 races for you (no need to build it in Create My Report). Let’s look at each feature in more detail:

Winning Posts


This graphic will display the winning posts for this race type and allow you to determine if there is any bias. When looking at certain race types you may decide that the rail is the best place to be, or that a horse has the best chance of winning from the middle or outside. Mousing over any column will show you the number of winners for that particular post.  On the main display you will also see the Program number for each horse and their actual post if it differs from the program number.  A track like Gulfstream Park is always talked about as having a strong rail speed bias.  This may be true, however by using this feature you can see just how strong that bias might be.

Winning Payout


The winning payout graphic will show you how often favorites or longshots win this race type.  It is broken down into four categories: $2.10-$6.00, $6.01 -$10.00, $10.01 – $20.00 and $20.01+.  This data will let you know if this is a race type that is predictable by the public or not, longshot players can use this screen to find races that tend to produce longshot winners and focus their handicapping on finding a long horse with a big chance.



The Races tab will show you a list of all similar races and allow you to sort by date or payout.  You can click on any of those races and open them up in MixMaker.

Most Important Factors


There are tabs for Win%, Place%, Show% and Accuracy.  By default you will see the most important factors on the Win% screen.  This shows you which factors have been most predictive in selecting the winner of the race.  In this example Best Lifetime Speed is the most predictive factor at 41%, which means that in this sample of races the horse that was ranked on top in Best Lifetime Speed won the race 41% of the time.  The second most predictive was a tie between Avg. Best 2 of Last 3 Speed and Best Speed Last 3 both at 37%.  We can see that the #4 horse is ranked on top in each of those categories.  When you scratch a horse the table will be recalculated, showing you the top 4 horses in each factor without the scratched horses being considered.  If you click on the name of a factor those horses will be added to BetPad for you.  If you click on the Race Profile Report button a report will open that contains all of the similar races, and you can create a mix or do more detailed analysis.You can look at Win, Place, Show and Accuracy by category as well.  It is often very useful to find the most predictive factor within each category. If you see that the top overall factors are all from one group (in this example the top 6 overall factors are all speed related) it would be advisable to look at factors from other groups as well.
