PA Filter Update

Print Version Print Version
The new filtering utility is ready to go. We’ve added five new options: Two dimensional early pace horses (2dE). Surprise pace races (PR+). Power pace figure pattern (PF!). First and second start off layoff (L1/L2). Speed figure range last race and second race back (1R/2R). I’ll go into these in a minute. As you probably remember, the early pace box horses are the most profitable. We want 2d early pace box qualifiers with a Form Factor Rating of 3 or better plus one of the 6 other factors.

Here’s some good news. I’ve added a 2dE option that will find all 2d early pace horses (5 or more speed points) even if they’re not in an early pace box. My research tells me that a Form Factor Rating of 3 or better is the way to go. Add one of these three pace factors to qualify the 2d early pace horse for best results – Fast 6 or better (F6+), surprise pace race (PR+), and the power pace figure pattern (PF!). Since these two dimensional early horses are not in a comfort pace box they need a “pace” factor helper, thus the F6+ and/or the PR+ and/or the PF! factor.

Take a look at the little utility and then I’ll go through each option.

CSFR: Fits competitive speed figure range.

FFR3+: Form Factor Rating of 3 or better.

2dEPB: Two dimensional early pace horse that will be racing in a comfort early pace match-up.

PCZ: Pace Comfort Zone qualifier.

F6+: Coming out of a race that was Fast 6 or faster at the second/pace call.

L1/L2: First or second start off a layoff.

PF!: A 2d early pace horse that has pace figures of 100 or better in last three races.

PR+: Surprise pace race last race.

!$: Surprise in the money finish last race.

2dE: All two dimensional horses that have 5 or more speed points.

Subscribers can download the update on their PA PPs page (Java applet page)

Please note:

The 1R and 2R options are not functioning due to more testing. The labels simply mean that the CSFR qualified in last race or second race back.

Download utility and replace the old paPP.exe with the new one. Keep the database files in the same folder.
