I agree that trips have a bigger role on turf, but that just means you need to do a little more homework and the figure will help put the trip in perspective IMO.

I found three races with time data entered incorrectly yesterday. One was off by two seconds, one was off by one second, and one by 0.90 seconds.

"Doing Nothing" is a bit overstated.



As stated in the article, regarding the Equibase figure, at the start of each year (when a full year's data set is in), a complete shipper study is conducted to update the complete ITV table and to recalculate the previous year's figures as appropriate, as well as to update the algorithm for the future.
