Preakness Analysis (05/14/14)

In-depth analysis of the 2014 Preakness Stakes including Pace Figures and Form Cycle Pattern of each starter. Please refer to the Legend or Pattern Guide for back-up definitions and patterns.



The Predicteform.com Pace Figures will tell you if a horse is likely to improve or regress in its next start. Pace Figures are not just a single speed number, but rather a series of numbers that are incredibly powerful in identifying the Form Cycle Patterns of a horse.

#1: Dynamic Impact (12-1)

It took this runner five starts to break his maiden (first lifetime win), just as it did Ring Weekend. Dynamic Impact is the lone son out of a broodmare (mother) who was a fast horse but never won past seven furlongs. Both trainer and jockey are making their first start at the Preakness.

Dynamic Impact put up a 79.1/68.6 in his most recent start, the $500,000 Hawthorne Derby (non-graded). This effort was a lifetime Final Pace Figure top of 6.4 points while his 4f Pace Figure stayed consistent. The 79.1 final also came off 49 days rest which is likely why the connections have taken a shot in the Preakness. While it is reasonable to see big forward moves of +5 points for improving three year olds, nothing in his previous five races indicate Dynamic Impact could run another final Pace Figure in the high 70's.



The play: REGRESSOR - unlikely to run back to a Final Pace Figure in the high 70's, which would be needed here to win.
