From Foal To Finish Line™: Racing

The ability to know the potential of a horse before he goes to the race track is of utmost importance.

To determine that potential, Classic Champion Thoroughbreds, LLC has created the Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® software which analyzes the breeding influences in the five-generation pedigree.

The profile software assigns each horse a numerical score and grade ranking which is the indicator of that horse’s potential. The higher the score, the more potential that horse has in becoming a quality stakes winner or classic champion.

In 2015, Classic Champion Thoroughbreds, LLC debuted the Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® software as a racing, handicapping analytical tool for Kentucky Derby 141. The software analysis picked five of the top six finishers and eliminated over half of the Derby field from wagering consideration.

The Preakness results were even better than the Derby and you can read about that here: However, the Belmont results were best as the software correctly identified AMERICAN PHAROAH, FROSTED, KEEN ICE and MUBTAAHIJ as the top four finishers in that race. You can read about that here:

The Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® is a proven racing analytical tool that shows horse owners, trainers and handicappers which horses have the best potential to be a top-quality stakes winner or a classic winner of races like the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.

The Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® also shows horse owners and trainers the best race distance that their horse will have the most success, be it in sprint racing, middle distance or routing. The profile can help owners and trainers spot their horses in stakes races where they will have success by analyzing the profiles of other horses entered in the race.

In addition to the Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile®, a Behavior Index has also been created and it measures the potential behavior of the horse. It allows some horses with low profile scores, grades to potentially be moved up in ranking. Also, some horses that have high profile scores can be moved down in ranking.

The Behavior Index is significant for racing analysis as it shows that some horses with low profile scores can be competitive up to nine furlongs while only a select few can go on to win races at the classic 10-furlong distance.

For example, Outwork has a low E grade ranking but his Behavior Index indicated that he could be competitive in the nine-furlong 2016 Wood Memorial Stakes (G1). Indeed, Outwork went on to win the Wood, however, in the Kentucky Derby (G1) his grade ranking had him ranked sixteenth and he finished fourteenth.

From foal to finish line™, the Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® is a proven analytical tool you need for breeding, purchasing at auction and racing equine champions:
