During the long period of
research resulting in the paper, ¡°„Engineering
Analysis of Thoroughbred Racing¡°ņ, one of the well known horse racing
publications contacted me to explore the possibility of their publishing
CompuTrak¡¯s ¡°„Horse Friction¡°ņ output on a daily basis. For credibility
verification, they asked that I submit the CompuTrak program to the
¡°„Phillips Racing Newsletter¡°ņ for testing.
Phillips rated CompuTrak very
highly, 8.5 and showed the results of their testing the program on 153
consecutive races at Santa Anita, using only $2.00 win bets. They achieved
a Return on Investment of 96.99% with a win rate of 36.6%. The table gives
a more complete summary.
