Marking the Past Performances
Once you understand the data and the running lines in the Past Performances, it's time to start marking them up, evaluating them for each horse and comparing each horse to the others in the race. This will also help you determine how the race will be run, which can definitely set you apart from the crowd!
Found in the Daily Racing Form Past Performances (PPs) and Official Equibase Programs, as well as in other types of programs, the individual running lines not only contain hidden gems of information, but as a whole they can reveal patterns that lead to winning performances.
