Beyer Figure for Pacific Classic revised
By DRF Staff
The Beyer Speed Figure for Game on Dude’s runaway victory in the Pacific Classic has been revised upward to 113.
Game on Dude’s published time for the 1 1/4-mile event was 2:00.69, a slow performance which, if taken at face value, would have produced an implausibly low speed figure for the fastest horse in America this season. The Trakus timing system at Del Mar cast doubt on the “official” time by recording a final time of 1:59.26.
Randy Moss, a member of the Beyer Speed Figure team and the creator of the Moss Pace Figures did a frame-by-frame analysis comparing Sunday’s Pacific Classic with the 2012 race. He concluded that Game on Dude ran 0.20 seconds slower than Dullahan did last year, making his final time 1:59.74 seconds. That time is the basis for Game on Dude’s figure of 113.
At this point who cares! If you bet on Dude, you cashed and moved on to the next race, or next day. This should be a complete non story by now.
This is great-- I was wondering how this would be decided, so I appreciate the details.
People talk a lot about track conditions. Track is fast, track is slow, but tell me this dreaming of Julia and Orb ran on sameday same distance dreaming of Julia ran 1:48 and Orb ran 1:50. I guess win orb came up track was Slow.LOL. Orb wins derby, dreaming of Julia never won again. Some horses just freak she freaked that day and all record holders freak that day and all are usually horse with lot of ability. When a horse running in maiden claiming 3andup start breaking track records then come talk to me about track conditions.
I'll congratulate Randy Moss for his expert analysis but any one who follow me on twitter (@Volponisingle) will realised i said previously that Game On Dude repeated his 2012 performance when 2nd to Dullahan! I also stated the fig the same as Royal Delta was wrong 'cause it would had us thinking Authenticity would have been 2nd in Pacific Classic by four lengths, doubt it! It also made the Travers the stronger race which seem further from the truth!
It's time for racing to use the first down line that football uses in it's television broadcasts. Just put that line at the start wire and put it at the finish. Timing with video won't need overlays or any other trick. When retiming a race, just start the time when the first horse trips the wire and stop it when the winner crosses the finish line.
The only way to go anymore is with Bris if you don't have a ton of funds... and if you really want to make a nice score and don't mind spending some cash to look at figures the Thorograph is the ultimate way to handicap. But I will be totally honest if you attend the races enough you don't need any type of figure to win at the races. All the numbers are is a small tool to try and see the outcome of a race. Keeping up with a certain meet is the only way to make money at the track consistently. Knowing bias of track on a daily basis along with trip handicapping is one of the most successful ways to make money day in and day out at the racetrack, the problem is anymore its to hard to resist all the OTHER action from around the country where a gambler can truly just focus on one track, it takes time and discipline to be a true horse player.
Didn't they revise GOD's final time and Beyer after the CT Classic. I believe so. It must be Baffert pushing this then. GOD will have a hard time in the BC with the East Coast front runners.
Give it a couple days...it may head upward again.Hard to find things credible or with substance these days
To be honest, I haven't bought the DRF PPs in months because of how inconsistent the speed figures are. What is it? A performance figure or a final time speed figure? We may get to know when they adjust it for the big races, but what about all the little races where they never tell us what kind of figure we're getting? That's why I switched to a different company for PPs.
