Handicapping - Pedigree - History - Dosage

The Track. The Sights. And More.



Instead of posting the full chart, I'll relay the pertinent info as it relates to the present track bias going into this weekend. The only surprise that comes out of it; the track isn't playing fast, rather... It is playing SUPER FAST.

I have tracked all 69 Dirt Races held at Santa Anita during this full meet. I am removing the one 12f dirt race, as it has no bearing. Here are the findings for 68 Dirt races run between 5.5f to 9f.

Winners who posted their highest and best Equibase figure of their career:

(Removed First Time Starters) 48 out of 64 = 75%

Top Tier Winners (Position 1, 2, or 3, at 1st call): 53 out of 68 = 78%

Top Tier Winners (Position 1, 2, or 3 at 2nd call) 55 out of 68 = 81%

ANZ Index 3.00 and over (5.5f to 7f) 30 out of 41 = 73%

ANZ Index 3.00 and over (8f and over) 19 out of 27 = 70%

Average 1st Call (5.5f to 7f) - 22.02

Average 2nd Call (5.5f to 7f) - 44.89

Slowest 1st Call at 5.5f to 7f: 22.69

Average 1st Call (8f and Over) 22.71

Average 2nd Call (8f and Over) 47.23

Gate to Wire Winners (All Distances): 26 out of 68 = 38.2%

The Ballydoyle Brigade.

One of the most glorious and exquisite sights seen at Santa Anita. The finest example of sportsmanship and discipline, I dare say, ever seen at that race track or anywhere else in America. Spectacular. (Hit Play Button)
