Special Features Of TrackMaster F.A.S.T. Sheets
Basic Strategy - F.A.S.T. Sheets are designed to give you the edge needed to win at the track. This sophisticated program assesses each horse's probability of winning and produces acceptable (fair) odds for the contenders. As post time nears, if only one contender has odds equal to or higher than its acceptable odds (an overlay), then a wager on the horse to win is called for. If there are two overlays in a given race, a wager on both horses to win is indicated. If there are three or more overlays in a given race, a bet on the overlay with the largest (post-time odds to one)/(fair odds to one) ratio is indicated.
Exotic Strategy - For exactas and trifectas, one strategy is to box the overlays and play the overlays with the other contenders. For serial exotics (Daily Double, Pick 3, etc.), an acceptable strategy is to key the contenders that are overlayed versus the morning line and play them with the other contenders.
The race header contains the basic information regarding the conditions of the race as well as the wagering options available. A contenders list is provided along with race analysis regarding the pace scenario and key handicapping angles. Only some of the positive angles for each contender are highlighted, but all positive and negative angles are reflected in the acceptable odds line. If you see the same comment repeated for different horses in the race analysis section, it is due to more than one horse in the race having similar characteristics. The race format sorts the horses from highest to lowest first by running style then by the early figure. This allows the user to see the likely position of the field in the early going as well as by early pace figures.
Front-runner - Usually on the early lead.
Alternator - No particular style. An alternator can also be deemed a non-contender.
Stalker - Normally sits just off of the pace in the early stages of the race.
Trailer - Usually near the back of the pack in the early going.
Unknown - Style not known, usually because the horse is foreign or a first time starter.
Dominant Front Runner - Front runner that has the highest early and finish figure.
Dominant Stalker - Stalker that has the highest early and finish figure.
Dominant Trailer - Trailer that has the highest early and finish Figure.
Lone Front Runner - Only one horse in the race is a front runner.
Lone Stalker - Only one horse in the race is a stalker.
Lone Trailer - Only one horse in the race is a trailer.
Fast Paced Race - At least four horses are front runners. Favors the stalkers and trailers.
Paceless Race - There are no front runners in the field.
Basic Race - This race has a balanced pace scenario.
Dominant Class - A special situation when one horse has a class edge over the field.

- Product Tutorials
We've provided some video tutorials on how to read, interpret and handicap races using the F.A.S.T. Sheets:
1) Contender List - This section is the quickest, yet sophisticated way to make your wagers. In each race there will be anywhere from 1 to 5 contenders with acceptable odds for each. Compare the post time odds to the acceptable odds to determine whether you will be getting “value” betting on that horse.
2) Running Styles & Race Types - Each horse in the race has a running style ranging from Front-runner, Alternator, Stalker, or Trailer. The reports analyze the styles of all the horses in the race and then come up with a likely pace scenario called the race type which ranges from lone front-runners, stalkers and trailers to fast paced and paceless races. Keying in on the probable pace scenarios helps focus on the type of running styles that may have an advantage in a race.
3) Putting It All Together - Once you understand how the basics of the reports work, the next step is taking all the individual parts of the F.A.S.T. Sheets and using them together to find a race to play. This can be done by targeting in on a specific race type, analyzing the running styles and looking at the contenders list to come up with wagers for a race.
