A Statistical Study of the Age of Horses-Older Horses or Younger Horses, which fare the best. D older horses run better than younger horses or vice versa. Race analysts will often comment on the age of the horse, “probably past its best” or, “an in-experienced horse” sometimes for the younger horses. In this book I have tried to see if there is any merit in it. Over a period of time 1731 races were analyzed. Taking the three oldest and the three youngest horses in each race and the results were analyzed as well as any profit. The results are shown dividing the races into handicaps, non handicaps, jumps, flat, all weather etc and numbers of runners; 4-7 runn, 8-11 runn, 12-15 runn and 16+ runn to see if there was any particular type of race where an advantage was more evident. The book contains tables of win and place percentages for each type of race and profits gained or lost. The book does not contain a betting system or any guarantee of profits to be made; just the results.
