A winning strategy requires the best data possible to understand your stable and the thoroughbreds within it. Here is an example of the data I collect and a race tracking template that you are welcome customize to meet your needs.
To find the best data you should begin with finding the preferred distance of your thoroughbred. Visit the Zest site to find these odds and track their preferred distance in the first column.
Currently, only distance preference is being accounted for within the racing algorithm, but gate will be added next. When we find more information it will be posted here.
