Mike:
I downloaded Wo a couple of days ago. The races on my RDSS show correctly, at least for this race. Possibly try reassembling this race or if that doesn't work, redownload the whole file.?

Mike, I concur with Charlie, my RDSS PPs for that horse match the DRF you show. Try re-assembling that race first. If that does not change things, please UNCHECK the DON'T DUPLICATE box on the Data Centre Tasks section and re-download, re-convert that card.

No idea right now why that might have happened ...

Ted

Rich, this problem happens at SA and DMR when a horse number is missing - in this case the #5 horse is missing (an Early Scratch). This has been mentioned several times before, somewhere. The scratch routine presumes there are no missing horses numbers (which is correct for all tracks EXCEPT SoCal tracks), but when there are missing numbers, the scratch info gets applied incorrectly.

When this is the case, you have to disable the tote system to prevent this from happening. Use the routine to disable the tote system described several places in this thread, or in this general announcement here (http://www.paceandcap.com/forums/sho...&postcount=251)

I will get this fixed in the general update coming whenever I can get it done, per my general announcement (http://paceandcap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12434)

Ted

A reminder of a problem in the current version (V2.1.049.11) related to the TwinSpires Ratings ProfitLine and Prime Power -

When a Coupled Entry exists (i.e. #1 and #1A or #2 and #2X) RDSS puts the data it gets from TwinSpires in the wrong place and ranks it incorrectly, for both PL and PP.

When you see a Coupled Entry where BOTH parts of the entry still exist (i.e. one part has not been scratched), please check the online TwinSpires page to see the correct PL numbers (alas, PP numbers are not visible). When one part of a Coupled Entry has been scratched, the PL numbers and ranks appear to be correct. If you are not running RDSS with the Tote Enabled, you will need to manually refresh the TS Ratings using the Refresh TS Ratings button.

Here is the main TwinSpires page - no login required (the one RDSS accesses for data):
https://www.twinspires.com/bet/program/todays-races/time

Navigate to the Track and Race, then look on the Basic Tab, at the Odds Column far right, per the example below.

Name:  TS.ProfitLine.jpg

Size:  141.6 KB

A secondary problem RDSS encounters is when ProfitLine Odds are tied (e.g. the #1 and #5 above, both tied at 3-1). RDSS incorrectly ranks tied PL Odds in the Progam # order it encounters them, when what it should do is rank them tied (in this case tied rank #1, not rank #1 and #2).

(a reminder, youc an show the expanded version of the Entries screen using the 'expander' icon [+] above the SCR column).
Name:  FL1.jpg

The above problems with Coupled Entries and tied ranks affect both ProfitLine and Prime Power, and I have a solution to resolve the above issues with the next update.

Please Note: there are various TwinSpires sources of ProfitLine and Prime Power on different reports (e.g. free or purchased PDF reports) both prior to the current day and ON the current day. RDSS ONLY has access to the data published the CURRENT day at the link given above (here: https://www.twinspires.com/bet/progr...ays-races/time). It has no access to data in PDF reports. Whenever there may be a discrepancy in data published in TwinSpires PDF reports (either before or on the current race day), when comparing what RDSS shows, please always compare ONLY to the live day-of HTML page and not any of the PDF reports.

Of course, you can always use PL and PP ratings from the TwinSpires PDF reports in your handicapping as you see fit. But RDSS will always and only use the data it gets from the above link.

Ted

Belmont today - 3 horses shown as FTS, but with many races, none shown

Three foreign horses show as FTS, but there is no info for their races in the individual tabs.

Is this how foreign horses are going to show up from now, or was todays info just a hiccup?
