Pure Speed Figures

Pure Speed Figures represent how much faster a horse finished a race compared to the track average at that distance (or gait in harness racing).  The average track figure is calculated for each track by taking all of the races of that calendar year at that track into the average.  If there are no races for that year, the average from the previous year is used until a pool of at least 25 races of each distance (or gait in harness racing) is collected.  Since averages do change as the year progresses, the Pure Speed Figure is only accurate to the printing of this program, although any fluctuations once the average is updated is usually minute.  The horse with the best average Pure Speed Figure is underlined and the figure that is the best at that distance (or gait in harness racing) on the card is bolded.

Pure Speed Figures are not meant to be a standalone handicapping tool.  In order to get the most out of these figures, use alongside past performance sheets and any other handicapping tool that you like to use.
