RATINGS
  • ES: EARLY SPEED RATING
    • The ES is a critical measure which displays how fast a greyhound can jump out of the box. This measure has been carefully studied and fine-tuned over the years and is becoming more accurate as our algorithms continue to learn.
  • ESR: EARLY SPEED RANK
    • The early speed rank provides a ranking for that specific race based of the ES value. Rank One (1) represents the greyhound with the fastest predicted early speed.
  • ECI: EARLY COLLISION INDICATOR
    • Our Early Collision Indicator was introduced to help identify if a greyhound is at risk of closing in on the inside greyhound when first jumping out of the box. If a greyhound has a similar early speed as its inside dog, this usually is a good indicator to predict a collision as they approach the first bend.
  • SFR: STATFREAKS RATING
    • The STATFREAKS Greyhound Rating (SFR) is made up of over 50+ variables which we have developed and optimized over many years. Each variable has a specific weighting of importance coming into each race. Our predictive analytic algorithms continuously adjust these weights as it continues to learn over time.
    • As we are constantly analyzing data and learning new things, new variables are constantly added to our back end database. Our advanced system automatically decides how important, or not for each race.
  • RK: RACE RANK (SFR)
    • The SFR rank provides a ranking for that specific race based of the SFR value. Rank One (1) represents the predicted highest rated greyhound for an upcoming race.
  • RKT: MEETING RANK (SFR)
    • One of the most powerful measures available across all our racing ratings, the “RKT”. This value, is the rank of a runner in a race, ranked against all runners on the day for a specific meeting.
