This set of ALL-Ways Handicapping Profiles includes four special profiles to use on the 2012 Kentucky Derby weekend at Churchill Downs (Friday May 4th, Saturday May 5th and Sunday May 6th). The Kentucky Derby race is run on Saturday, May 5th. You will find the profiles around the middle of the complete list of all profiles. Here are the profile names:
derby weekend ds Use for all dirt sprints run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday
derby weekend dr Use for all dirt routes run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday
derby weekend tr Use for all turf routes run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday
There are two other sets of Handicapping Profiles that can be used at any time for races at Churchill Downs. These profiles all share the profile naming convention:
ds = dirt sprint ts = turf sprint os = off track sprint
dr = dirt route tr = turf route or = off track route
