|Thoro-Graph, Equibase Announce Expanded Availability of Sheets Products|
Thoro-Graph and Equibase Company LLC today announced that the Thoro-Graph Sheets, used by serious handicappers and horsemen, and Thoro-Quick, an abridged version designed for simulcast players, are now available on equibase.com.
The Equibase website was recently redesigned with a multi-homepage concept including several new features designed specifically for new/casual fans, regular visitors, and seasoned players/expert handicappers.
“Equibase has been the go-to source for racing information for years,” said Thoro-Graph President Jerry Brown. “With the new site, it now has a better platform in which to cater to the advanced horseplayer and it makes sense for our sophisticated products to be available there.”
Each number on a Thoro-Graph Sheet for a horse represents a performance rating arrived at by using the time of the race, beaten lengths, ground lost or saved on the turns, weight carried, and any effects of wind. A lower rating indicates a better performance.
The Thoro-Quick product is formatted to provide data for three horses per page.
“The Thoro-Graph Sheets are a valuable handicapping tool for high-end handicappers,” said Hank Zeitlin, president and chief operating officer for Equibase. “Serious players who get the racing information they need at equibase.com will now have easy access to these valuable handicapping products.”
Thoro-Graph produces proprietary numbers that can be found in their full line of Sheets products and other premium handicapping information. In addition, Thoro-Graph provides a full range of services for the Thoroughbred industry, including consultation and management services for horsemen. Additional information about the company is available at thorograph.com.

Through its website, mobile platform and mobile applications, Equibase offers a comprehensive array of free statistical information as well as premium handicapping products and reports in support of the North American Thoroughbred racing industry.
