How fast is each horse? How fast will it run today? Where's the value?

Thoro-Graph answers these questions by presenting accurate performance figures on a graph for each horse allowing you the opportunity to attack every race with confidence.

Each number on a "sheet" represents a performance rating calculated by using the time of the race, beaten lengths (a proprietary formula different than generally used), ground lost or saved, weight carried, and the effect wind may or may not have had on the time of the race. The final figure is manually adjusted with a carefully crafted track variant.
The lower the number the better the race. With few exceptions, there will be a figure for every race a horse has run past four years.

Thoro-Graph figures are represented in a clear graphical format. This format makes it possible to compare horses which have run under different conditions, different distances, at different tracks, and on different days. Any handicapper or horseman can examine each horse's history, form cycle, and relative ability in today's race.

With a little practice, you'll be able to identify each horse's distinct form cycle. Some run consistent patterns, varying from a simple good race/bad race pattern, a series of bad races after an exceptionally good effort (the "bounce" ), or more complex 'circling' patterns where a horse gradually loses its form then slowly comes around toward its original level. A "sheet player" can anticipate these moves and select horses which are not obvious to the general public. Another simple pattern is how a horse performs off a lay-off. All you have to do is look for the gaps in the horse's sheet and compare the figures it runs first time off a lay-off, whether it improves second time, and so on. And the information is shown for up to four years.

Of course there are infinite variations in how horses run and no two are alike. There are no hard and fast rules on how to interpret patterns and form cycles. Every handicapper will come up with his or her patterns they like or dislike. Some people will only bet longshots. Others just want to have fun and cash a race no matter what the return. Whatever your style, Thoro-Graph provides all you need to make you a better, more informed player.

It may take you a little while to get the hang of reading our format, but if you stick to it, you'll realize Thoro-Graph is everything you need to win.
