One tricky area is researching more than one horse’s performance in a previous race. The individual horse’s work is really well detailed in the Daily Racing Form’s Past Performance Data (shortened to DRF PP). A question might arise, “What was that race really like?” or “How did the other horses do?” or “How did horse XYZ do against horse ABC?” This sort of historical data is also available. The DRF Simulcast Daily and the Weekly editions are publications devoted to the immediate past (rather than to the immediate future, which is the focus of the DRF itself). There is also a lot of editorial copy on trainers, jockeys, horses and racing circuits. The outcome tables (“race charts”) are available for all the tracks around the country. This publication is especially helpful in the race book, as it has national coverage, just like the DRF and the race book itself. This is an extract of a race chart.
