Running Lines – Color Coded and Customizable

TimeformUS running lines have color-coded sections to easily show the bettor a horse’s tendencies on specific surfaces.

The Speed Figures and race conditions are color coded to indicate the surface. Brown with black lettering is a race run on dirt. Brown with green lettering is a race that was scheduled to run on grass, but was instead run on dirt. Green with black lettering is a race run on grass. Blue with black lettering is a race run on a synthetic surface. Blue with green lettering is a race that was scheduled to run on grass, but was instead run on a synthetic surface.

When looking at the running lines, below the jockey’s name, you’ll see the weight, an “L” for Lasix, a “b” for Blinkers, and an “f” for front bandages. In the example above, the red “b” means that blinkers were added (and the horse had previously been running without them). A red “L” would mean first-time Lasix.

The horse’s running position is listed directly above each point of call, and the positions are aligned with the fractional times at each call.

Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 11.31.50 AMTo easily identify horses that have faced each other in the past, the 1-2-3 finisher box is also color-coded. Horses that hit the board in a previous race, and are also entered in today’s race are noted with red font.

    What is the “adjustment” from the official time on the fraction preferences?

      Hi David,

      We adjust race fractions in our running lines for the speed of the track on that particular day. The fractions are adjusted using our track variant. You have the option with our PPs to choose the official fractions or “adjusted” fractions that take into account how fast or slow the track was that day. Simply click on a running line, and choose adjusted or official fractions.

      If you click on adjusted, you will see fractional times that are also adjusted to use track-track. A Belmont line and a line from Saratoga can be compared directly against each other when using adjusted times.
