I'm going to abort this study. While the MLF's I like do better than the ones I dislike, there appears to be little chance for a positive outcome. Here is a summary of all bets in the study.

Win hit rate:

Favored MLF = 34%
Disliked MLF = 22%
Alternate ML = 17%

Money Lost:


Favored MLF = -21%
Disliked MLF = -31%
Alternate ML = -17%

Hit the board (w,p or s):

Favored MLF = 68%
Disliked MLF = 60%
Alternate ML = 47%

Most systematic studies like this wind up showing little or no value. I think this study wasn't bad at all. The horses you threw out did way worse than the ones you kept. That's already positive. Maybe you need a little more work, especially on the "alternates" to improve the ROI.

What was the criteria for throwing MLFs out?

__________


this is an unscientific observation but anyway

years ago I had this idea that shots would be more likely to win in certain types of races

specifically I was looking at cheap maiden claimers and races with first time starters

my thinking was that with these cheap maiden claimers so often all of the horses are so bad it would be very hard to back one as a fave

my thinking was that with first time starters it would be all but impossible to name a fave since you could only rely on breeding, and jock and trainer and workouts - and to me that seems to be hardly enough




so, I looked at a couple of hundred races in each category

and I was quite surprised to find out how wrong I was

in each category the fave won about 33% just as in racing overall

so, my idea fell far short of being brilliant
