Horse racing ratings are a way of scoring a horse’s performance and deciding on the likelihood of a good performance in the next race. You could refer to the Official Ratings, as well as Speed Ratings – but when the bookmakers also have this information, it becomes less relevant.
So we decided to create our own.
The advantage of having our own ratings is that we can make our own judgement on what’s a good race, and what’s not. We can award points for a third place where the first two have gone on to win bigger things. We can deduct points for a win against poor opposition.
We wanted to stay ahead of the bookies.
