Predicteform for the Equiform Customer (03/13/14)

The core of Equiform remains Founder Cary Fotias' complex algorithms that produce the Pace Figures and the Form Cycle Patterns which they in turn illuminate. What is new to Predicteform is the data relationship with Brisnet and its ability to automatically parse the data in a quick and timely manner. This advanced technology allows us to provide Pace Figures and the coveted Form Cycle Pattern's in a powerful web-based format.

This web based format significantly enhances the user experience in the following ways:
  • ­Pace Figures are now available for all pari-mutuel tracks running.
  • The incoming data feed has been customized by Predicteform's data partner This allows for a much earlier publishing time of the Pace Figures, usually within a day of when entries are drawn. Data is parsed twice a day at 10pm and 8am ET which automatically updates the Pace Figures. These updates come in the form of new race days as well as updated Pace Figures with post positions.
  • ­The dynamic nature of the Pace Figures allows the user to simply select the track and date from the drop down menu and the webpage is immediately updated with the selected track's Pace Figures.
  • Once a user subscribes to a specific track and race day, the data updates which follow (over the course of the next 24-48 hours) are included as part of that track and race day purchase.
  • ­The interactive website is most easily accessed from the website or your mobile device. If using an iPad, the vertical format provides more horses per page while the landscape version allows for bigger type.
  • A print button for each race or the entire day still exists which will appeal to subscribers who like to have the Pace Figures in hand.

Enhanced Supporting Data for Subscribers includes:
  • The Form Cycle Pattern Guide has been updated with both technical and general definitions of each pattern available. These patterns have been refined from Equiform's presentation, providing an increased level of accuracy for subscribers as they evaluate form cycle analysis.
  • Historic Form Cycle Patterns are now provided for all previous races giving subscribers the power to see how a horse might react off an NPT, PLOW, etc.
  • The original Equiform Legend has been updated with in-depth explanations used to provide detail on how to maximize Predicteform's Pace Figures.
  • The original format of the Equiform Pace Figures has been expanded to 10 lines of data. The top 5 lines include Pace Figures at select points in the race as well as the Form Cycle Patterns, all exclusive to Predicteform. The next lines are as follows: track, surface, distance, length, condition, blinkers/lasix and date. The final time, the 4 furlong pace figure (known as the “pace” number) and pattern are where 90% of the user focus should be.
