Learning “How to Analyze” The Rogue Ratings Computer Program – Step 1

Screenshot_2015-09-16-20-51-57This is going to be a weekly article for new fans, novice horseplayers and even seasoned gambler’s looking to master the unique Rogue Ratings™ computer program. This is a “how to guide” for horse racing handicapper’s looking to advancing their knowledge from the basic’s to an advance level understanding these sophisticated calculations that are presented in a simple user friendly way.

I present this race at Belterra Park on 9/13/15 to point out the three basic concepts that the rogue ratings™ will help/ teach the new fan or novice horseplayer, which is to simply understand quickly the potential horses to play (highlighted with a symbol) per race, potential race shape(listed in order of early speed projections) of each horse and the velocity number for each horse that is a measurement of it’s potential. This all helps to put the new bettor on par with the sophisticated handicapper “Right out of the Gate!”


The Speed Horse in this race is clearly highlighted in the color red with the symbol *S* which is the number #8-Waylon’s Ghost. The Key Horse in this race is clearly highlighted in the color blue with the symbol *K* that is the number #1-J.M’S Parade. Mostly all races will have a Speed Horse and a Key Horse listed with the small exception of a certain amount of races.


The race shape projection for this race looks to have at least four horses vying for the early lead as this is easily shown to you by the Early Speed column that lists the number rating for each horse’s early speed rating. Also, this is very easy to understand as the horses are listed in order from top to bottom of the rogue ratings™ program page by early speed order…it’s just that simple!

So, analyzing this race would tell you that since you have several horses(3 or more) looking to battle in the early stage of the race that it sets up well for the off the pace horse which is the Key Horse the #1.

In this race the result was the #1 horse(Key horse) ran second and the #8 horse(Speed horse) ended up running out of the money(meaning the top three spots). I hope you can see how the Rogue Ratings™ computer program quickly, simply and effectively allow the new fan or novice handicapper to view a race in a sophisticated way that puts them par with sophisticated bettor!


The velocity number is the summary of each horses form cycle/ velocity number, which is the measurement of the potential forth coming effort by each horse. The lower the velocity number the better for the velocity rating. To give the new fan or novice horseplayer some perspective of the rogue ratings™ overall number scale that a zero(0) velocity rating would be considered a perfect type of rating as the horse equally distributed it’s energy in the most efficient way throughout the race.  Please note, that the rogue ratings™ can sometimes list a horse as a minus(-) number which is also shows a horse as being highly efficiently energy wise in a race.

The Rogue Ratings™ easily delivers for the new fan or novice horseplayer:

  • Easily outline’s the potential race shape for each race overall and for each horse specifically
  • Highlight’s each potential play in the race by color’s and symbol’s
  • Measures each horse’s form cycle/ velocity number for it’s class level and potential effort.

I hope this makes it easier for you to understand and use the Rogue Ratings™ to your advantage and please let me know if you have any questions.
