Kentucky Oaks & Kentucky Derby Day Handicapping Reports

With two great days of racing scheduled for Friday and Saturday, I thought now would be the perfect time to offer some free handicapping reports to help people win more money this weekend… or help confuse everybody even more. I’m not really sure.

The Race Report Cards I’ve talked about before. They rate entrants in four areas — speed, class, jockey and trainer. The horse is given an A-F grade in each category and, from these grades, is assigned a grade point average. And while these GPAs are often not definitive, they are, on the whole, very predictive, as the following statistics show:

The other reports are simply a compilation of my pace figures — early and late speed rations — as well as class and speed ratings.
