Class and Speed Winning at Keeneland
These two ratings, along with Prime Power, are—for my money—the three most powerful pieces of data found in the Brisnet.com Ultimate Past Performances. Unfortunately, they haven’t gotten enough of my money, as I am down 42% on the meeting despite the best last-out Brisnet.com Speed Rating being up 6%, top Class being up 5.5%, and Prime Power down 13%.
The good news is despite the unimpressive -42% ROI, this is a small sample, and I’m only “one away” from turning the tide from red to black. Indeed, I’ve been live to some monster Pick 3s but haven’t gotten that longshot just yet.
The plan for the final two weeks will be to narrow my focus when warranted and not waste money on fringe contenders when there is more value hitting a sequence multiple times. This likely means not betting every sequence, as I did on Thursday, October 9, when I hit all seven Pick 3s and lost money.
That’s a micro approach for the next two weeks at Keeneland, but the macro view is that the last-out Speed Rating is still extremely powerful and often overlooked, and I’m not rah rah enough to think that this is merely a Brisnet.com phenomenon. I have little doubt that if other figure makers and ratings providers ran similar numbers (especially in the short term) that their numbers would hold up OK, too.
