PLATINUM DIRECTIONS

The program is very easy to use.  Once you have it installed, you will need a Brisnet.com acct to purchase the single-file data for the track you wish to handicap.  What ever files you download from Bris--put them in the same folder as the PLATINUM program.  You have 3 downloads, so put another copy of the program in your bottom tray,and pin it to the taskbar.  This makes accessing the program as easy as possible. 

Click "Load a File" and double-click on the data file you want to see.  All the columns are sortable--1st to last.  

POWER=MY OWN POWER # FOR THAT HORSE

-E-1, E-2,LATE  are the pace figs for the LAST RACE.

pp1 and pp-2 are the horse's 1st call position and lengths behind from last race--and the race before that.  You'll find most winners are within 4.5 lengths @ 1st call--one of last two (or both)

-T/J% is the Trainer and jockey's win %. 

-DAYS = days since last race

-S+Q are the Quirin running style and early speed numbers

-SPD = best of last-2 speed rating

-PRIME= Bris Prime Power

-CLASS= Purse Value...if the Purse value was lower   last race-you'll see a "-"  if the Purse Value last race was higher, you'll see a "+".  This means he's either going up in class, or dropping in class.  If there is no notation--the horse is not going up or down in class today. 


-T BLAST= my own rating for turf races--the higher the number, the better the horse has performed on Turf in the past.

-S BLAST= my own proprietary rating for early speed.

-E POWER=  Early power   -L POWER=LATE POWER

-ITM%= percentage the horse finishes IN THE MONEY

-LR FIN=  Last race finish

-L3 SPEED=total Bris Speed ratings for last 3 races.

-% EPS= Earnings per Start as a percentage of today's purse.

-ABILITY= My own rating mainly for higher-class horses and stakes.

Once you have a race open--double-click on any horse to get the horse's past-performances on your screen


-ALL BUTTON will show all horses running today--you can then sort and find the horse today with the top Power Numbers, Ability, etc 

-2.5L BUTTON shows on the screen ALL horses that have shown early speed ability--good for testing spot plays, etc


 **  HOW TO SCRATCH A HORSE  (SAME METHOD FOR ALL PROGRAMS)FOR EXAMPLE, IN THIS RACE-IF YOU WANTED TO SCRATCH "EZRA"...HIS POST POSITION IS #11  --GO UP TO THE GREEN BOX AND DOUBLE-CLICK THE # 11, AND EZRA IS GONE.  UNFORTUNATELY...IF YOU MISTAKENLY SCRATCH THE WRONG HORSE, YOU'LL HAVE TO RELOAD THE CARD AND START AGAIN.  AFTER A COUPLE DAYS--YOU'LL VERY CAREFULLY SCRATCH YOUR HORSES, AND WON'T HAVE TO "RELOAD" THE CARD.                                                                                                                                                                                                

                                    

                       Keep in mind I define "class" by purse value.  "earnings per start" is earning as a percentage of today's purse--more accurate.                                                T-BLAST= TURF RATING--S-BLAST=EARLY SPEED--L POWER=LATE POWER-E-POWER IS A GENERAL OVERALL SPEED FIGURE.

    ABILITY=A UNIQUE CLASS RATING--SPD RATING=BEST OF LAST-2 BRIS SPEED--PRIME=BRIS PRIME POWER--2.5L ARE  HORSES  THAT SHOWED EARLY SPEED MIN. 1 OF LAST 2.  POWER RATING IS EARLY SPEED, CONNECTIONS, RECENCY, AND TRAINER/JOCKEY  WIN %.  HORSES WITH NO POWER NUMBER-- IS USUALLY BECAUSE OF NO RECENCY OR NO EARLY SPEED  

                                     

                                    

                                  


THERE ARE NO EXTRA  INSTRUCTIONS NECESSARY FOR BEST-FIVE OR PONYPICKER...AS THERE IS NO HANDICAPPING INVOLVED.

EXOTIC BETS! PROGRAM WILL HAVE MORE INSTRUCTIONS -- IN ADDITION TO WHAT'S ALREADY IN THE SALES AREA.

*please read our terms--believe it or not--some folks download our programs, and once it's on their computer they immediately demand a refund.  For this reason only, we had to stop offering refunds.  I have given free upgrades, replaced lost programs free of charge (usually due to computer crashes)--and generally tried to be as helpful and friendly as possible.  I sincerely hope you understand this...any problems at all--call me and we'll surely work it out. --Thank you so much-
