Table Of Actual Time To Lengths To Verdict To Kilo In Weight

    It is a general belief that one point, which is equivalent to one half of a kilo of weight in the scale of weights for handicap races, normally slows down a winning horse or a losing horse that finished close to the winner by half of a length or by 8 parts of a second in effect where a second is measure of 100 equivalent divided parts and one second in turn is equal to 6 1/4 lengths.

Therefore the actual fractions of beaten length or winning margin below a length approx starts with:
