Was playing with the Bris PP Generator. One can set the styles to display the time of the Bris winner.

Anyway, I saw the following in which two horses were entered in the same race as follows:

Horse #1 - lost by 3.75 lengths. Bris fig - 89 or a 72.0 Bris speed

Horse #2 - lost by 4.75 lengths. Bris fig - 88 or a 72.1 Bris speed

The winner's bris fig is listed 95 or about a 71.3 (in tenths speed)

Horse #1 - -6 Bris points

Horse #2 - -7 Bris points

This is about 1.47 points per length for Horse #2 and 1.6 points per length for Horse #1. This also translates to about .187 for horse #1 in actual time and .168 for horse #2 in actual time.

Seems to show the wide variance in rounding with two point speed figures.
