The Phillips Racing
Newsletter, an independent, beholden to no one organization, tested the
first version of CompuTrak and reported excellent results. By making win bets,
in 153 consecutive races at Santa Anita, they showed a 97% profit while winning
36% of the time. Place and show bets, as you would expect, showed even greater
in the money percentages. Over time, CompuTrak has added even more features to
improve your results even more. These sample
testimonials attest to that. CompuTrak Handicapper 2005 goes even further adding the OddsLine and Summary, and additional important data such as the Form, Magic and
CompuTrak is based on the engineering
mathematics contained in the report, “Engineering
Analysis of Thoroughbred Racing.” This engineering paper was written with
the sole intent to publish it in an engineering journal. The development of the
theory took about a year of research. After that time, the theory fell into a
cohesive whole. The reason CompuTrak works so well is because the mathematics is
based on engineering principles and provides very useful outputs. Some of them,
for example, horse “friction”, are
unique and unavailable elsewhere.
Very easy! Here’s how. CompuTrak uses the Bloodstock, (BRIS),
Daily Racing Form, (DRF), file that you download to your computer. You then run
CompuTrak. With simple mouse clicks you choose how you want CompuTrak to process
the data. You can choose how many races, how many pacelines, the OddsLine
Multipliers. Another mouse click and the processing is done. You then can choose
which of the CompuTrak information you want to view or print. That’s it!
CompuTrak Handicapper 2005 builds upon the proven
success of previous versions. Further research now gives you an OddsLine; a
rating that lets you judge the present Form of a horse; an Improve Number
showing you how the capability of the horse has changed from race to race, and
the “Magic” Number that combines the Boxer Number and Speed Rating. All the
previous proven outputs of CompuTrak are retained in CompuTrak Handicapper 2005.
You can see the complete list of the CompuTrak Handicapper 2005 output information in
Appendix A of the “Users Manual”, and examples
of how this information is presented to you in Appendix B.

CompuTrak Handicapper 2005 outputs--such as the OddsLine, Horse Friction, the Boxer Number,
and Magic Number--to see how the overall power of the program can point you to
the winning horses, and to see how the outputs are shown to you
CompuTrak has three types of output; the OddsLine and
Summary, the more Extensive report, and the Charts (graphs). The OddsLine and
Summary is often sufficient. More in-depth handicapping can be done using the
Extensive report, which also includes a wealth of auxiliary information from the
BRIS/DRF input data. The other type of output is in the form of Charts, showing
in graphical form the performance of the horse, paceline-by-paceline. You can
see samples of these three types of output information in appendix B of
A person new to handicapping can do very well just by
using the information shown on the OddsLine and the Summary.
Whether you are a beginner just starting to explore the various pathways to
successful handicapping, or are very experienced, you will find that CompuTrak
is designed with you in mind. The tutorial and the report “Handicapping with
CompuTrak Handicapper 2005” describe various approaches and techniques for you to use. An
example, with commentary, of what to expect at a typical race day, using the OddsLine and Summary is in the Tutorial, and a step-by-step procedure for
more in-depth handicapping is in “Handicapping with CompuTrak Handicapper 2005."

No problem. Just go to the “Scratch” Link, where you can generate a new OddsLine which takes scratched
horses into account.
