NOTES:

RECORDS, WINS, WIN PERCENTAGE: For current Laurel meet, Oct. 18-Feb. 9.

RATINGS: Based on my analysis of all of a jockey's mounts from Dec. 26 through Jan. 30. Only those with 12 or more mounts during that period were included. THE SCORING SYSTEM: A jockey was given two points for what I thought was a notably good ride,

1 for every bad ride. Point total was divided by the number of mounts during the rating period. If a jockey had one good ride (+2) and five bad rides ( 5) his net points would be

3. If he had 100 mounts, his final rating would also be

3. If he had 50 mounts, his rating would be

6. This system was necessary to rank riders who had limited opportunities, but it may exaggerate the ratings of those who had very few starts during the period (e.g., Aburn).
