Figure Making Final Exams (2605 Views)

The BC had pretty much everything in figure making terms, tracks changing speed, dead grass rail, dead dirt rail for part of one day (as it dried). The good news is that we didn't have to deal with maiden races and we had big fields, so sample size was good for each race. The days were complicated, but not difficult, as you can see by the number of horses that ran tight to their previous figures. I've been doing this a long time, but this is the first time in quite a while that doing the days and piecing the puzzle together was really fun.

Almost no two figure makers will do these days the same way. Those who don't use weight or ground by definition can't do them the same as we did, and those who do, but don't believe tracks change speed, are bound by their "rules" to get many races wrong, some by a lot, on Saturday especially.

The days with the figures they ran are in ROTW. If somebody has too much time on their hands, break out the Euros by Lasix/not, and see what percentage of each ran new tops.
