Who might benefit from My HorseRaces?
How might they benefit?
You may enter race data manually or you may upload Australian or New Zealand race data electronically at the click of your mouse after you download race files from Racing Australia (RA) - prepaying RA for 'New Form' (last 5 starts) or 'Computer Form' (last 2 years) as a Racing Services Bureau (RSB) subscriber.
Three data bases are provided for you to add your own race data for analysis:
You can use the optimisation facility of My HorseRaces to determine which analytical techniques and options would have maximised returns from sets of past races that you select from your own data base as you build it up. A data base of 2004 horse races built up by the developer is provided with My HorseRaces. You can immediately use this 2004 data base to test the optimisation facility to see the benefits of building up a bank of races over time (or, with My HorseRaces Basic, analyse individual races).
Results of use by the developer of the optimisation facilility on a series of data bases of Australian races -
2000, 2004, 2005, 2008 (metropolitan), 2008 (country), 2009, 2012, 2014/15 and 2017 -
help shape the default option and parameter settings in My HorseRaces. All these results should also help users choose
their own settings for the races they follow.
