Because of the partnership between Timeform and TimeformUS, it’s much easier to use TimeformUS Past Performances to evaluate horses who have been running on both sides of the pond.
Here are the top three ways TimeformUS PPs give you an edge when analyzing foreign horses running in North America (or at meets such as The Dubai Racing Carnival):
1) Foreign speed figures harmonized with North American speed figures
Timeform figures for overseas racing are created using different methodology (because the North American figures factor in fractional times), but we work in partnership to harmonize them on the same scale, making it easier for you to instantly understand whether a foreign shipper has an edge over local horses.
2) A clickable Timeform Perspective Comment
In addition to speed figures on the global Timeform scale, detailed prespective comments are available for particular foreign running lines. Detailed prespective comments can be expected for a large majority of races held in England, Ireland and Dubai. If a detailed prespective comment is available, it will be uploaded to the TimeformUS PPs within 24 hours of post time.
3) Post Position and Blinkers
Because of the depth of information provided by Timeform on shippers, TimeformUS offer the sort of information that is hard to find elsewhere. What post position did the horse break from in his overseas races? Did he have blinkers on? Look to TimeformUS for the most comprehensive data on overseas racing.
