Previously we were only offering “weight on” with no preference for the user. Our default setting will continue to be “weight on” but a few customers have expressed that they don’t like weight carried by each horse to be already accounted for in the speed figures.

How it works:

Weight on: We have done extensive studies, and we feel we have a good grasp on the effect of weight. Therefore, we adjust all of our figures for weight: both the weight carried in previous races and the weight assigned for today’s race. This allows you to ignore weight completely when using TFUS. Ignore the weights the horses carried in the past. Ignore the weights the horses have been assigned today. Both have already been accounted for in our figures. You can simply move on to other areas of handicapping. In short, disparities in the weight the horses will be carrying today are adjusted for by altering the figures that the horses earned previously.

Weight off: However, we realize that weight is a controversial aspect of handicapping and that some of our customers have different opinions on how it should be handled. Indeed, some believe weight should be ignored altogether. Therefore, we are now presenting a “weight-free” option. Click on this option and you will instantly receive TFUS speed figures that are not adjusted for weight in any way. Neither the weight carried in previous starts nor the weight assigned today will be adjusted for in the speed figures. Choosing this option will allow you to adjust for weight (or ignore weight) as you please.
