Dog Racing Card
You can use the dog racing card to gauge the chances of each dog in the race with the cards details of their past performances. Each line of the form guide refers to one race and you usually get the details of the last six.
CalcTm - The time the dog would have run if the going had been normal. Any trouble in the race is not calculated for.
Class - The grade of the race run, the highest grades are the lowest numbers. OR are open races, open to dogs not attached to the stadium.
cWinTm - The time it took the dog to win the race
Date - The last dates that the dog ran. The most recent date is shown first.
DIS - The distance of the race, in metres. A "H" after the distance indicates it was a hurdles race.
G'ng - This is the quality of the track conditions known as the going, it can affect the speed of the greyhounds. A dry track means the dogs can run faster, whist if it has been raining the dogs will run slower. "N" is normal going and adjustments are made in hundredths of a second.
Kilos - How much the dog weighs in kilograms.
SP - The starting price which the SP compiler had the dog at for the race
STm/Hcp - Known as the sectional time or split time, the STm shows the time it took the dog to cross the winning line the first time round. It is greyhound's early pace and gives you a clue as to the chances of that dog leading the race. For handicap races, instead of showing the split time, how much of a start the dog received is shown.
TP - The trap that the dog ran from.
