The Derby is something very specific. Sample size is large, all horses are the same age, and horses have to qualify to get in, in the same few races every year. And what we try to find are guidelines, tendencies. Like a scouting report.
Other races don’t lend themselves to that kind of analysis because of sample size, and there are more variables. But there are general tendencies to look for, that’s what handicapping is all about.
