2013 Pars Plus - Book Format
Cynthia Publishing continues to do an outstanding job of compiling pars and related information for all tracks and distances run in North America. This book also contains an excellent 94 page introduction to pars, their uses, and related topics, plus 110 pages of detailed par tables.
Pars Plus presents par times for three points of call for every distance, every surface, every class level, for every track in North America (where sufficient races have been run to create a valid par). It also includes a numerical, class ranking system for tracks and classes of horses that run at them. It provides numerous introductory tables, including average DRF daily track variant for sprints and routes for each track, Inter-track Class Levels, and a very welcome "Track Capsules" section, with a couple of data points and a short, sweet narrative about track characteristics for every track in the country.
You can use the pars information straight out of the book in the ways suggestedorif you are a handicapper with your own ideas and areas you want to research, involving times, distances, or tracks, this book will be a real bargain and a tremendous work-saver. It is full-size, triple-punched, and bound with brass fasteners, so that you can put it in a three-ring binder to lay flat while you work. A serious reference for serious handicappers.
