Transparent system of Rating and Rating related weights in Handicap Races

   

Scale of rating related Weight differentials for Age, Distance and Class for each calendar month of a year for Indian Horses is imperative for equalization of abilities of all horses  and apparently weights of all such horses eligible for such age related weight allowances are deducted that much in the Rating Related Handicap scale of Weights of 50.0 – 62.5 kilos in terms of points of half a kilo each in all classes even before ratings and relevant rating related weights in handicaps are allotted in which the assumed weight of FIVE YEAR OLD AND OVER horses have been synchronized to 62.5 kilos and with the equivalent rating of 105/class (I)-(80-105+), 85/class (II)-(60-85), 65/class (III)-(40-65), 45/class (IV)-(20-45) and 25/class (V)-(0-25) at BTC-Bangalore races and MRC–Mysore races.  And if the scale is same at RCTC Kolkata races five year old and over horses weights will be 62.5 kilos as related to ratings of 106/class I-(81-106+), 86/class II(61-86), 66/class III (41-66), 46/Class IV (21-46), 26/class V (01-26).  And at Hyderabad Races five year old horses weights will be 62.5 kilos as related to ratings of 100/category I (75-100+)/(75 and above), 75/category II (50-75 horses rated up to 75), 50/category III-(25-50 horses rated upto50),25/category IVorIIIb-(0-25horsesrated up to 25).  And at RWITC Mumbai/Pune/DRC Delhi races five year old and over horses weights will be 62.0 kilos as related to ratings of 106/class (I)-(80-106+), 86/class(II)-(66-86), 66/class (III)-(40-66), 46 class(IV)-(20- 46) and 61.5 kilos 26/class (V)- (1-26).

Fillies and Mares will get 1.5 kilos weight allowance Foreign Horses will carry 7.5 kilos more The above figures are in points of half a kilo each – Divide by 2 to convert them to kilos. Weight differences between the weights is the crux of the weight scale and not the exact weights Therefore if the horses are rated the same and assigned the rating related weight of 62.5 as per their ratings in the scale of weights for handicap races the figures of differences shown above will be the figures of penalty on such horses at 62.5 kilos in points of half of a kilo each since the weight differentials as per the weight for age scale is already deducted by that much in the weights of horses in the rating related scale of weights for handicap races. However every racing club has its own scale and if you wish you can also make your own.
