UK Horse Racing's Ratings

Speed

Speed rating relative to the mean for the race.

Speed ratings are determined from the recorded time of the winner of each race. The time is corrected for going and class of the race.

Horses within a few lengths of the winner also qualify for a speed rating determined from the number of lengths behind.

A horse may qualify for a speed rating after a single race but if more speed ratings are available from several races then the speed rating presented here is an average for the last few qualifying runs. If a horse has not qualified for a speeding rating then the entry is blank.

Separate speed ratings are maintained for different types of racing (AW, flat, NH flat, hurdle, chase).

The speed rating in the horse's history is adjusted for the weight carried in that race.
