7 furlong angles
captainlucky posted a topic in At The RacesHi everyone, I commented on a thread a few days ago about whether specialising in sprints was a good idea, and the subject of 7 furlong races came up (asking if they're classed as sprints). I said I'd post something if I found any merit in a 7 furlong system. It's a specialist distance and because it's such a specialist trip I thought we could find some good things from it. So could be haphazard but he's what I decided to do and what I found out... With the theory of some people are better at their job than others I decided to look at trainers in profit over the last four years at 7 furlongs (flat turf only) and only took runners that had 2 or more races in the last 90 days, as a fitness precaution really. Paul Cole: BETS 49, WINS 9, SR 21.95%, PL +36.75 Luca Cumani: BETS 29, WINS 7, SR 24.14%, PL +8.26 David Loughnane: BETS 49, WINS 9, SR 18.37%, PL +50 Gary Moss: BETS 22, WINS 6, SR 27.27%, PL +22.88 Martin Smith: BETS 18, WINS 5, SR 27.78, PL +93 Mark Walford: BETS 21, WINS 5, SR 23.81, PL +21.25 And the four years combining every trainers runner under those rules were 2017: BETS 54, WINS 13, SR 24.07%, PL +56.5 2016: BETS 56, WINS 11, SR 19.64%, PL +98.25 2015: BETS 35, WINS 9, SR 25.71%, PL +26.26 2014: BETS 35, WINS 8, SR 22.86%, PL +51.13 As I say this could turn out to be haphazard, maybe the trainers style of preparing horses suits the 7 furlong runners, or perhaps they are just better at understanding it's a specialist distance and what it takes to win at it. I will continue to add to this thread through the flat season and see where it takes us.
