Special Features of TrackMaster Results Charts
All official results direct from the track chart caller with complete positional calls, lengths behind, special symbols, race times and comments when recorded.
TrackMaster produces several different ratings for harness racing. Speed ratings are for horses and measure performance in a single race. Class ratings are for races and judge the level of competition. For all ratings, the higher the number the better.

- SPEED RATINGS: TrackMaster assigns a speed rating to each horse's race, where there is enough information to accurately do so. These ratings tell you how fast a horse has been performing. It is based on the horse's actual time and other factors, such as the composition and condition of the track and the post position the horse started from.
- CLASS RATINGS: TrackMaster assigns a class rating to today's and historical races. The class rating for a race is made up of a weighted average of the previous speed ratings from the horses entered in that race. The number is basically a projection of what the expected winning speed rating would be for that particular race.
In addition to the horse's race speed rating, individual fractional pace figures are computed for the various segments of the races. These figures when averaged together will equal the final speed rating. Handicappers use these to identify during which parts of the race the horse did its best work, looking for horses that made more than one sustained move or looking for horses with dominating early or late ability.
The track variant is calculated using a proprietary formula which computes the difference between the expected and actual winning times at a track. The resulting number is then added to the speed ratings, compensating for the various day-to-day factors affecting the track condition. This can even vary between races as conditions change.
CLAIMS & SCRATCHES
Horses claimed out of the race are listed along with horses scratched from the race with reasons when available.
Race comments direct from the track handicapper when available.
ODDS & PAYOUTS
Official odds to $1 are provided for each horse. Information on some pari-mutuel payouts for each race when available.
