Top Horses by BRIS Speed Ratings

Sep. 8 - Sep. 14
What's This?
BRIS uses an objective, computer-precise method to make a final time projection rating. This rating then allows a handicapper to compare the relative speed of different horses in different races and at different tracks. These ratings are calculated using proprietary techniques and algorithms that have been tested and proven over hundreds of thousands of races. Because the ratings are "fully adjusted" (reflecting both daily and track-to-track variants), they are comparable across all North American racetracks. For males 3 years old and older, a typical speed rating in a grade I race is 106, for an open $10,000 claiming race winner it’s 88, and for a $10,000 maiden claiming winner it’s 75.
