During the long period of
research resulting in the paper, “Engineering
Analysis of Thoroughbred Racing”, one of the well known horse racing
publications contacted me to explore the possibility of their publishing
CompuTrak’s “Horse Friction” output on a daily basis. For credibility
verification, they asked that I submit the CompuTrak program to the
“Phillips Racing Newsletter” for testing.
Phillips rated CompuTrak very
highly, 8.5 and showed the results of their testing the program on 153
consecutive races at Santa Anita, using only $2.00 win bets. They achieved
a Return on Investment of 96.99% with a win rate of 36.6%. The table gives
a more complete summary.
