OptixNOTES: Trip Handicapping in the 21st Century

Part II of The Future of Handicapping (OptixEQ)

While OptixPLOT will give you an excellent overview of the race shape, race flow, and pace dynamics of the race, helping you choose which races offer the best opportunities, OptixNOTES will help take your handicapping into the 21st century.

OptixNOTES is a proprietary trip-handicapping past-performance platform that includes performance ratings, trip descriptors, and form projections (along with detailed extended comments) from the OptixEQ team of expert handicappers. Think of them as past-performance grades and trip descriptions that can help you better understand and predict a horse’s current and future form.

OptixNOTES are available for most of the major tracks on the major circuits, and they are an incredibly valuable tool when it comes to assessing a horse’s chances of winning a race. Since watching replays is incredibly time-consuming—and sometimes fruitless if you really don’t know what you are looking for or how to use that information—the OptixEQ team does all of the work for you, grading a horse’s previous trip/performance while also commenting on that trip and sometimes even projecting where that horse might be headed in the future.

The other cool thing about this platform is that it’s vibrant—everything is color-coded for easy readability. Positive attributes are green while negative ones are red.

Here are the OptixNOTES for Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, including one of the extended comments from his Monmouth race:

This type of trip-handicapping data is available for several tracks on the major circuits, giving handicappers a massive edge when it comes to assessing a horse’s form.

Tomorrow in the conclusion, Part III, we take a look at OptixGRID as well as the OptixFIGS for all of the Kentucky Derby preps.
