The entire site is undergoing a rebuild as we speak. It won't be fast, but it will be good.

Me too, it's a great product now I am sure Craig and company will only make it better, wish they had it for Hong Kong.

Hey, if anyone is reading this on the development team...I for one would like to see a SORT BY Spotlight Number on the preview page. Maybe even a SORT BY early and late numbers as well...that would be GROOVY!

This would make it much easier to isolate the top 3 or 4 in each category...

CJ...I might have asked this prior but...

Can't you make your own Data Files and break loose from BIG GREED ...

My problem with TimeformUS is the format. Obviously there are some great features on there that are very valuable. But to me, it is too difficult to compare horses. Hate having to scroll down to see a horse's entire PPs. Plus I want to see the pace figures for the horse and the leaders on the same screen rather than having to toggle back and forth.

I really loved CJ's more analog format where you could more easily look for form cycles in the figures.

The Condensed form printing format is less than satisfactory, especially compared to its previous version, prior to Timeform. It appears to be an afterthought, a sop to those who demanded it, but lacking important information. No designations for distance changes, no ability to change the layoff settings.

Personally, I'm happy for CJ that he was able to monetize all his hard work -- he deserved it. There is no nicer, more generous person on this board. But it's just too unwieldy for me to use regularly.

Too each their own, but I think it's a great product, and has been a more than welcome addition to the available handicapping information. If nothing else, it offers a somewhat different approach to performances than was previously on the market.

No doubt Craig has had a hugely positive impact on the game. Hard to imagine anyone caring more about doing the right thing.

For me, that's an issue with all handicapping done on computer. You can't get multiple horses in your field of vision for easy comparisons. So I don't notice subtle but sometimes important things that I find quickly with printed PPs. But it's also not convenient or cheap to print them all out, especially when I include pace figures, my notes etc...

I am so "addicted" to old school DRF PPs, it is hard for me to use online too, and sometimes my computer doesn't show the scroll bars so I can't see all the horses. But I do print to PDF the entire card and use that to see multiple horses at once, and that works just fine. No need to print to paper, just open the PDF and you can annotate that on screen.

My only suggestion would be to show the pace figs and adjusted times together...the adjusted times are very good and if you use any type of feet per second velocity figures, BAZINGA!

It was a great trip watch CJ develop his product over the years here at PA and on his old website.

The Formulator PPs with the pace figs and the Beyers in standard PP format are probably the best bet out there right now for us dinosaurs.

I use TimeformUS every month.

The pace figs and pace projector are useful, and I like that it's a hub for my charts and most of my replays. Saves me a lot of time and clicks.

if I have a complaint or an upgrade wish it would be to have all tracks replays available.

But I understand that there is license issue or whatever, and that it's not a realistic request, given the situation.

For Churchill, it's very easy to replay, as are track homepages w/ replays. Some others take more clicks and time, such as ones that are on Youtube.

It is what it is. I'm not going to be fake and say it's perfect and market dominant, but it does happen to be my favorite toolset right now.
