Special Features Of TrackMaster Plus Pro
PRINTED PAST PERFORMANCES
TrackMaster Plus Pro includes PDF printed platinum past performances in multiple formats that can be downloaded from our web site. They include 12 past performance lines, ranked workouts, conditional jockey and trainer stats, pace figures, power ratings and key race stats are shown at the bottom of every race.
XML DATA FILES
The XML data files contain all the information in Plus Pro, but in a file type specific for those looking to use in their own programs. Due to their size, these files are zipped up and will need to be extracted to use in a .xml format.
Sorting is a powerful tool for handicappers to use. Nearly every column of information in TrackMaster Plus Pro is sortable. Simply click the top of a column of data and arrows will appear to tell you the order in which the column is sorted (ascending or descending). Click again, and the data sorts in the other direction.
TrackMaster Plus Pro displays information to allow you to compare horses head-to-head in selected categories. For example, once you have decided that a particular horse in the race is no longer of interest you can hide that horse's information to allow you to focus on the other horses of interest.
Enter in personal notes you may have about each horse. The information will be displayed beneath the workouts and analysis in the past performances or can be edited/viewed by clicking on the horse comments icon. The comments are saved for when the horse runs in the future and can be edited by clicking on the horse comments icon in the details section.
Enter three different types of notes: horse notes, race notes and race day notes. These notes will be displayed in the running lines when the horse runs in the future. Horse notes pertain to an individual horse. Race notes pertain to a particular race. Race day notes pertain to a specific race card. You also have the option of adding these notes via the charts.
TrackMaster produces several different kinds of ratings. Speed figures are for horses and measure performance in a single race. Class ratings are for races and judge the level of competition. Power ratings are for horses and are weighted averages of several different handicapping factors. Pace figures are similar to speed ratings, only they measure the individual fractions of races. For all ratings, the higher the number the better.
- SPEED FIGURES: TrackMaster assigns a speed figure to each horse's race, where there is enough information to accurately do so. These figures tell you how fast a horse has been performing. It is based on the horse's actual time and other factors, called variants, such as the composition and condition of the track.
- CLASS RATINGS: TrackMaster assigns a class rating to today's and historical races. The class rating for a race is made up of a weighted average of the previous speed figures from the horses entered in that race. The number is basically a projection of what the expected winning speed figure would be for that particular race.
- POWER RATINGS: The TrackMaster power rating is an overall indicator of the horse's potential profitability, combining the components of speed, class, pace and various other handicapping factors, updated using algorithms to maximize their effectiveness.
- PACE FIGURES: Pace figures are computed using the same fundamentals as speed figures. The difference is that pace figures are calculated for fractions of a race and not the entire race. An average early, middle and finish pace figure is shown for every horse.

In addition to the TrackMaster power rating, this primary section presents a summary of the key pieces of information for each race, such as essential program information, the best speed figure each horse has run at today's distance and surface, as well as a horse's record at today's distance and surface.
TrackMaster Plus Pro also contains detailed stats for jockeys, trainers, sires and dams. These stats are accessed by clicking on the name of the jockey, trainer, sire or dam in the past performances and then clicking on detailed stats from the summary statistics box.

The odds calculator allows you to compute what payoffs should be. For example, in a daily double you pair a horse with 9-5 odds with a horse with 2-1 odds, the payoff odds are 9.5: 1. That is, a $2 bet will pay $21. By comparing the should pay with the actual pay out received if your combination comes in, you can see if your bet is a good value or not. Making good value bets will help improve your profits over time.
