Working with Race Charts

You can display and print a variety of DRF Race Charts for a specific race.

You have two ways of accessing Charts in Formulator Web:

Accessing Charts from Past Performances
From any horse’s past performances, you can display the results chart for all of the horse’s past races. Each horse’s last five races are clickable and are highlighted in blue. Simply click the race you’d like to view, and you will be brought to that race’s result chart. The standard chart view is displayed, although you can choose from a variety of chart views (see “Altering the Chart View” below). To get back to the PPs from the chart, simply click the “back” button on your browser, or click "Past Performances" from the Formulator Web navigation bar.

Accessing Charts from the Calendar Tool
Another way of accessing charts in Formulator Web is by date. Simply click “Charts and Graphs” in the navigation bar, then select “Charts.” By default, it will bring you to today’s date. You can now use the calendar to view any chart for any race since 2007. The standard chart view is displayed, although you can choose from a variety of chart views (see “Altering the Chart View” below). Soon, we will offer expanded historical chart access for anyone with an Enhanced or Deluxe past performances subscription.

Altering the Chart View
You can change the chart view by clicking the “Options” button in the Formulator Web navigation menu while looking at a chart. You can select any of the following chart views:

• Elapsed Times view – shows the elapsed time for each individual horse in the race.
