:: WHAT'S IN FORMULATOR WEB ::

Overview
The most sophisticated proprietary handicapping software ever released, Formulator Web offers horseplayers unprecedented levels of flexibility, versatility and convenience while giving users the power to reformulate the raw data that is found in the print version of DRF to suit individual handicapping and personal preferences.

The following list provides an overview of the key features in Formulator:

Trainer Patterns - When handicapping a race, it is very useful to investigate a trainer's history in a similar race. For example, does the trainer excel in cheap claiming races? To find out, click on a trainer's name, which will be highlighted in blue text. Formulator Web displays the entirety of the trainers training records, providing both the trainer's statistics and the actual Performance Profiles for the individual horses queried.

This powerful feature enables you to perform in-depth analyses of a trainer's patterns. You can create custom queries about a specific trainer history and tendencies, and view both summary level and detailed results for the query. You can also browse through the Past Performances of all the horses in a trainer's stable, and use filters to isolate specific horses and to identify patterns.

Race Chart Views - You can display a variety of DRF Race Charts for a specific race. From any horse’s past performance, you can display the result charts from all of that horse’s previous races since 2007. Formulator Web not only displays the traditional results chart for that race, but also provides several viewing options for the information. NOTE: Printing Race Charts is currently disabled in the latest version of Formulator but we are working to restore that functionality very soon.

Filter Past Performances – Formulator Web allows you to view the past performances the way you want to view them. For example, you can toggle on and off between Closer Looks and Company Lines. You can merge workouts and notes into your PPs. You can scratch and hide horses, show times in fifths or hundredths, show incremental splits or individual horse times.

You can also view lifetime past performances, or choose to see just a set number of previous running lines. You can also easily adjust the size of the past performances and charts to fit your computer screen.

Inclusion of Moss Pace Figures – With Formulator Web, you can view Moss Pace Figures (where available) within the Formulator Web Past Performances. Moss Pace figures are an option you can toggle on and off within the Formulator Web PPs.

Inclusion of Video Replays – With Formulator Web, you can view Video Race Replays within the Formulator Web Past Performances. Video Race are accessible by clicking the "comment line" on any applicable running line. This is on the far right side of the Past Performance.

TicketMaker – - A program which allows you to construct Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5 and Pick 6 tickets using the structural strategies described in Steven Crist’s “Exotic Betting” book. You pick the horses you like, twist a few knobs, and Formulator creates the tickets for you. Once your tickets are ready, submit them all with just one click with DRF Bets. Access TicketMaker from the top right menu on Formulator. Additionally, look out for a new version of TicketMaker that expands the bet types to Exactas, Trifectas and Superfectas and makes TicketMaker accessible on all mobile devices.

:: ACCESSING FORMULATOR WEB PAST PERFORMANCES ::

Overview
When you launch Formulator Web, you will be brought to a page listing all North American tracks currently running (see screenshot below).

Formulator Web past performances are typically available two days in advance, and you can go back to view old past performances from past 30 days.

The race cards are separated into three columns: Today, Upcoming and Previous. The first column is always "Today" and represents today's race card. Scan to the immediate right and you will see the Upcoming race cards in reverse chronological order.

If the letter “e” appears next to the race card you’d like to view, for example “Belmont Park 03e” this is the “Early Edition” of the race card. Early Edition race cards are available at 8 PM Eastern Standard Time, two days prior to the race. Early Edition race cards include past performances, analysis, graded handicaps, track facts and selections.

If the letter “f” appears next to the race card you’d like to view, for example “Belmont Park 02f” this is the “Final Edition” of the race card. Final Edition race cards include past performances, morning line odds, analysis, graded handicaps, track facts and selections, and early scratches and program numbers.

If you have purchased a race card, you can now click on any date to view the Formulator Web Past Performances. After clicking the date of your choice, you will be brought to the “Conditions” page.

If you are already viewing a race card in Formulator Web and would like to view another race card (assuming you have already purchased another race card), simply click the “Cards” tab located at the top-left of the navigation bar to return to the race card selection page. You can also switch between previously purchased race cards using this "Cards" button, and will not be charged for another purchase.

Using Tabs to view multiple cards
The latest version of Formulator allows you to quickly open multiple cards in different tabs or browser windows from the Card Menu Selection page. To activate this function, open the Settings and scroll down to the option that says, "Open Card in:", and then click on either "New Tab" or "New Window."

Return to top


:: USING THE CONDITIONS PAGE ::

Overview
You are immediately brought to the “CONDITIONS” page after selecting the race card you would like to view.

The Conditions page contains information for every race on the race card. The default view shows the race number, probable post time, distance, age, detailed race class, purse amount, weight, and any additional available information such as wagering information.

In the options menu on this screen, you can choose to view abbreviated Race Conditions. This version gives you the race number, the probable post time, abbreviated race class, and wagering menu (when available).

You can view the full past performances by clicking the Race Number.

NOTE: As a new feature, you can print the entire race card directly from the conditions page by clicking on the Print dropdown menu and selecting "Print All Races" and then clicking on the Print icon.

Return to top


:: USING THE ANALYSIS/GRADED HANDICAP ::

Overview
Once you have selected a race card, you can view the DRF Analysis/Graded Handicap. Simply click the “Analysis and Stats” tab in the top navigation bar. Then, click “Analysis/Graded Handicap”

This page shows the Daily Racing Form graded handicap. It also shows an analysis of the race when it is available.

The top portion of the page contains race number, distance, age, abbreviated race class, probable post time, purse amount and wagering information.

The middle portion of the page includes a list of all entries with their corresponding post positions, program numbers (when available), medication and equipment, jockey, trainer, weight, and Daily Racing Form morning line odds.

If there is an analysis of the race, it is included at the bottom of the page. If there is no analysis, this section is not included.

To move through each Analysis/Graded Handicap for all races on the race card, use the race selection tool in the upper right corner of the top navigation bar.

To print the Analysis/Graded Handicap, use the print function at the top of the page where it says "Print Page Content."

Return to top


:: VIEWING SELECTIONS ::

Overview
Once you have selected a race card, you can view each handicapper’s picks for the race. Simply click the “Analysis” tab in the top navigation bar. Then, click “Selections.”

Each handicapper’s Best Bets are in bold.

The statistics include number of races picked, top pick winners, and (in parentheses), top pick finishes in the money.

Consensus totals are based on five points for first place, two points for second place, one point for third place, and seven points for best bet.

To print the Selections, use the print function at the top of the page where it says ""Print Page Content."

:: DISPLAYING AND MODIFYING PAST PERFORMANCES ::

Overview
Formulator Web Past Performances contain the same past performance information printed in the Daily Racing Form newspaper. Race number, track name, complete race conditions, and past performances for all horses entered in the race are included.

If you have purchased a race card, you can now click on any date to view the Formulator Web Past Performances (PPs). After clicking the date of your choice, you will be brought to the “Conditions” page. From this page, you can click the race number to view the past performances for that race.

Look of Formulator Web Past Performances
Once you’ve opened Formulator Web Past Performances, you can alter the way they look on your screen by clicking on the "Settings" button.

Formulator Web will default to a “Fit to screen” setting when you open a race card. This means that the past performances will stretch from one side of your monitor to the other. To change this setting, simply “uncheck” the box titled “Fit” in the Settings. If this bar is unchecked, you can now slide the arrow along the “Zoom” bar to change the size of the past performances on your screen. (Note – alterations to the size of the PPs on your screen will not affect the way your past performances are printed)

If you would like to change the Font Sharpness or Font Thickness of your Formulator Web PPs, you can also use a sliding bar to alter their look. These bars can be found your Settings also.

In your Settings you will see these slide bars. As you move them left and right, the sharpness and thickness of your Formulator Web PPs will change. To save your changes, click “Save,” and click “OK” to close out of your Settings.

Note – any changes to the font size, sharpness and thickness in your PPs will also change the look of the fonts in your charts.

Filtering your Past Performances
Formulator Web allows you to view the past performances the way you want to view them. You can merge workouts and notes into your PPs. You can scratch and hide horses, show times in fifths or hundredths, show incremental splits or individual horse times. You can even toggle on and off between Closer Looks and Company Lines.

You can also view lifetime past performances, or choose to see just a set number of previous running lines. You can also easily adjust the size of the past performances and charts to fit your computer screen.

The screen shot shows you all the options you have when viewing your Past Performances. A check next to the feature means that you want to utilize that feature. For example, a check next to “Merge Workouts” means you want a horse’s workouts merged into the running lines of his past performances. Below is some more detail on each option:

• Merge Workouts
View workouts interspersed within running lines by checking “Merge Workouts” from the Options button in the Formulator Web Navigation Menu. The workouts are merged in chronological order.

By default, workouts are shown at the bottom of the Past Performance. When workouts are merged with running lines, they appear in green.

By merging workouts, you get a chronological view of a horse’s activity and insight into the trainer’s methodology.

• Closer Looks
You can choose not to view the Closer Look on the Past Performances page. The Closer Look is the text analysis of each horse. In the newspaper version of the Daily Racing Form, the Closer Look is to the right of the Past Performances. In Formulator Web, the Closer Look appears at the bottom of each horse’s past performances, under the Trainer Form statistics. The Closer Look is not available for every Past Performance.

• Company Line
You can choose not to view company lines on the Past Performances page. The company line is that portion of the running line that shows the first three finishers, weights, and margins

• Show Notes
You can choose to insert your personal notes into your Formulator Web PPs. Race, Card, and Trip Notes will appear beneath each applicable running line, while Horse Notes will appear below the Trainer Form. For more information about notes, click here.

• Incremental Splits
By default, Formulator Web Past Performances show elapsed times for the horse in the lead. To change the elapsed race time of a running line to incremental splits, click “Incremental Splits” in the View dropdown menu on the Past Performance.

• This Horse
By default, Formulator Web Past Performances show times for the horse in the lead and the final time for the winner. To change the race time from the race leaders at each point of call to the horse you are currently viewing, click “This Horse” in the Options button on the Formulator Web Navigation Menu.

You can also change this setting in your Profile Settings, under the “Past Performance” and “Pace” tabs.

• Scratch Horse/Hide Horse (available in the "Filters" tab)

Setting Running Lines Display/Print Options
You can control the way running lines are displayed and printed from your “Profile Settings.” For example, you can have Formulator Web show you 20 running lines for each horse, but only print out 10. These options can all be found in the “Profile Settings” under “Past Performances” and “Print Options.”

Choosing running lines to display (available in the "Filters" tab)
You can exclude running lines displayed in Formulator Web Past Performances by filtering those conditions that are not interesting to you.

By default, no filters are applied. This means that all information is visible in the Past Performances page and “All” is selected for each filter item.

To change the filtering, open your “Profile Settings” from the Formulator Web navigation bar. Go to the “Past Performance” tab, then to the “Filters” tab. Select an item from the Filter menu.

Choose a filter to show running lines of races that meet the criteria. For example, if you choose “Turf” from the “Surface” menu, only those running lines of races run on turf are visible in the Formulator Web Past Performances.

Note - You can also choose to gray the text that is filtered. For example, if you are most interested in jockeys racing today, but want to see them in the context of all jockeys, you can gray the text for all jockeys other than those racing today. To do so, first select Jockey and then Today’s from the Filters tab. Then select “Gray Filtered Text” from the “View” tab.

Choose any combination of the following:

• Distance to selectively view running lines by Sprint, Route, Today’s Distance, or Today’s Plus
• Surface to selectively view running lines by Turf, Dirt or Synthetic
• Track Conditions to selectively view running lines by Fast/Firm or Off-Track
• Recency to selectively view running lines Within 15 Days, Within 30 Days, Within 45 Days, Within 60 Days, or Within 90 Days
• Medication to selectively view running lines by Today’s Lasix, Bute, or Lasix & Bute
• Early Pace to selectively view running lines by On The Lead (first two calls) or Within Two Lengths (first two calls)
• Jockey to selectively view all jockeys or jockeys racing today
• Trainer to selectively view all trainers or trainers with horses racing today
• Track & Surface to selectively view all tracks or tracks at which races are taking place today

Setting "Today's Plus" Distances

Moving to a Specific Race
Once you have opened up the past performances for a race card, you can easily move from race-to-race within that card by utilizing race-by-race menu on the main nav.

Either use the left and right arrows to move through races, or use the drop-down menu to choose any race on the card. The menu will display the conditions for each race so that you do not have to navigate back to the Conditions page once you have clicked into any race on the card. Once the final version of the Past Performance is available, the menu will include the available wagers for each race.

Printing Past Performances
As mentioned above, you can control the way running lines are printed from your Settings. For example, you can have Formulator Web show you 20 running lines for each horse on your computer screen, but only print out 10. These options can all be found in the Settings.

You also have the option to print races individually, or to print the entire card. Simply click the “Print” button in the Formulator Web navigation bar, choose to print one race or the entire card, and begin printing.

Notes on printing: In order to print PPs, Formulator Web turns them into a PDF file. This process can take up to several minutes.

:: WORKING WITH PAST PERFORMANCE PROFILES ::

Overview
A Past Performances Profile is a group of settings you have selected to save. For example, by default the Past Performance page is set to display workouts at the bottom of each horse’s PPs. If you prefer, you can have each horse’s workouts merged into his running lines in chronological order, and save this as a profile.

Once you save the profile, you can apply it at any time.

More information will be added to this User’s Guide once these features become available.

Return to top


:: WORKING WITH SINGLE HORSE PAST PERFORMANCES ::

Overview
You can access, display, and print the Past Performances of single horses.

To display the Past Performances of a single horse, double click the target horse’s name, from any of the following locations:

• The horse’s name in a Chart view
• The horse’s name in a Trainer Patterns Detail View

Formulator displays the Single Horse PP view for that horse.

Note: When you access the Lifetime PPs for a horse from a Race Chart, you can access the PPs only for the horses in the specific race number from which you accessed the chart.

Return to top


:: ANNOTATING PAST PERFORMANCES ::

Overview
From within Formulator Web Past Performances and Race Charts, you can add your own comments to the past performances using Formulator Web Notes.

There are three types of notes that you can add to the past performances: Card Notes (notes for the entire card), Trip Notes (notes for a horse’s  specific race) and Horse Notes (notes for a specific horse). NOTE: Once you have opened up a Notes module, you will have to Save, Cancel or Save and Exit from the module before utilizing any other feature of Formulator. This is done to ensure that your notes are saved to our database correctly.

Card Notes (notes for the entire card)
If you have a general comment for a specific card, and want this comment to appear for every horse that ran on that card, select Card Notes.

Card Notes are especially useful when you have a track-specific comment that would apply to the entire card. For example, if the track was very slow for every race that day, you could enter "Slow track" as a comment. That comment would then appear in future race cards for every horse that ran that day.

If you’re entering a Card Note, you’re obviously entering it for a race card that’s already been run. You have two ways of entering your Card Note.

Through the “Charts” feature of Formulator Web, you can go back to old races and insert a Card Note. This note will appear in the past performances of any horse who ran at that track on that day. The Chart Note will appear below the running line of the specified race date, and will be preceded by a *C-

You can also enter Card Notes through the past performances pages. For example, if you’ve just watched the final race at Belmont Park on July 9th, you can pull up those past performances and enter a Card Note. The next time any of the horses who ran at Belmont Park on July 9th run again, you will see this Card Note.

Trip Notes (notes for a specific race)
If you have a specific comment or observation for a race, and want this comment to appear under that running line in future past performances, select Trip Notes.

Trip Notes allow you to comment about the entire race, or a specific horse in that race.

You can enter Trip Notes through the past performance pages, or through the chart pages. Either way, when selecting Trip Notes, a box will pop-up, allowing you to enter your notes. If you want to enter notes for the entire race, fill in the “Notes for Race” field at the top of this box. Notes that were entered as trip notes for an entire race are preceded by *R-.

If you want to enter Trip Notes for specific horses, fill in the fields to the right of each horse’s name. Notes that were entered as Trip Notes for an individual horse are preceded by *T-.

Horse Notes (notes for a specific horse)
If you have a general comment for a horse that is not specific to any particular race, select the Horse Notes option from the Notes menu.

You can enter a Horse Note through the past performances pages, of through the chart pages. Either way, when selecting Horse Notes, a box will pop-up, allowing you to enter your notes for any horse in the race you’re looking at.

After entering a Horse Note, this note will appear at the bottom of that horse’s past performances in Formulator Web.

In the example below, you can see the Card Notes (*C), Race Notes (*R) and Trip Notes (*T) under Smokin Hero's June 15th running line. The Horse Note is located below the Trainer stats.

:: VIEWING BEYER GRAPHS ::

Overview
The Beyer Graph is accessible from the Charts and Graphs option in the main nav.

It calls up a chart comparison of all the Beyer Speed Figures for the horses in a race. The colors of the lines on the graph correspond to the horse's saddlecloth colors for the race. Simply click on the names of the horses you want to eliminate from view to leave the horse's you want to compare. The Beyer Graphs default to showing ALL of the horses' figures in the graph; however, in the Settings you can change it to default to NONE of the horses so that only the horses you click on will display.

The horses' previous 10 races will be displayed on the graph, with the most recent races represented on the right side and older races on the left.

However, you can sort this Trainer Form in ascending or descending order in eight different categories: Trainer Name, Starts, Wins, 2nd, 3rd, Percentage of Wins, Percent in the Money, and Average Win Payoff. By default, the form is sorted in descending order by wins. To change the sorting, click on the column heading you would like to sort by.

Viewing Trainer/Jockey Combinations
The Trainer/Jockey Combo contains six columns of information for each trainer/jockey combination: Trainer Name, Starts, Wins, 2nd, 3rd, and Average Win Payoff.

There is a row for each trainer and a row for every jockey who has had multiple mounts for the trainer. The Trainer/Jockey Combo is in the same format as the one you see in the Daily Racing Form newspaper. However, you can sort this Trainer/Jockey Combo in ascending or descending order by all six categories.  By default, the form is sorted in descending order by wins. To change the sorting, click on the column heading you would like to sort by.

:: WORKING WITH RACE CHARTS ::

Overview
You can display and print a variety of DRF Race Charts for a specific race.

You have two ways of accessing Charts in Formulator Web:

Accessing Charts from Past Performances
From any horse’s past performances, you can display the results chart for all the horse's past races. Each horse’s last five races are clickable and are highlighted in blue. Simply click the race you’d like to view, and you will be brought to that race’s result chart. The standard chart view is displayed, although you can choose from a variety of chart views (see “Altering the Chart View” below). To get back to the PPs from the chart, simply click the “back” button on your browser, or click "Past Performances" from the Formulator Web navigation bar.

Accessing Charts from the Calendar Tool
Another way of accessing charts in Formulator Web is by date. Simply click “Charts and Graphs” in the navigation bar, then select “Charts.” By default, it will bring you to today’s date. You can now use the calendar to view any chart for any race since 2007. The standard chart view is displayed, although you can choose from a variety of chart views (see “Altering the Chart View” below). Soon, we will offer expanded historical chart access for anyone with an Enhanced or Deluxe past performances subscription.

Altering the Chart View
You can change the chart view by clicking the “Options” button in the Formulator Web navigation menu while looking at a chart. You can select any of the following chart views:

• Standard Chart view - the default view, showing the standard race results chart for the specific race you selected.
• Next Race view – shows the race chart for the next race in which the horse ran.
• Beyer Figures view – shows the horse’s Beyer figures for the next race the horse ran in, the race you’re currently looking at, and for past races. The Beyer numbers are not available for any starts that are less than ten days old.
• Incremental Pace view – shows the split times for each individual horse in the race.
• Elapsed Times view – shows the elapsed time for each individual horse in the race.
• DRF Comments view – shows the DRF comment line for each horse in the race.
• Form Notes view – shows any trip notes entered for any horse in the race. (For more information, see Adding Trip Notes)

:: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ::

Q: How do I print PDFs such as the Sibling Summary Report, Moss Pace Figures and QuickSheets?
A: The PDFs now load into the Formulator app itself instead of kicking you out to a new browser window. Each browser has its own native printing function that you can use for printing.

Q: Why can't I scroll down on the PDFs such as the Sibling Summary Report, Moss Pace Figures and QuickSheets?
A: You may have to click into the PDF content window before scrolling ability is activated.

Q: Why can't I access QuickSheets for a race card?
A: We do not product QuickSheets for all tracks. Also, it is possible the QuickSheets for that card have not been produced yet, especially if you are looking at an "Early" version of a race card. We are working on graying out the QuickSheets option in the dropdown menu when the product is not available.

Q: Why can't I save my Notes?
•Make sure that you have the "Show Notes" option activated on the "View" dropdown menu. If not, then your notes will not display within the Race Cards.
•You may have to reload the Past Performance for the notes to show up inline on the PP. Click on the "Past Performance" button on the main navigation or go back to the Cards menu and reload the card.
•When you have any of the Notes modules open, do not navigate away from the current race card or race chart you are viewing in the main content area of Formulator. In other words, if you are on Race 1 of a race card and call up the Trip Notes module, fill out your Trip Notes and "Save" before moving away from Race 1 in the main navigation.
•You may have a cache-ing issue on your browser. Follow these steps and your notes-saving ability should return:
   •Close all but one occurrence of your browser window.
   •Clear your browser cache. Here is a link if you need help with this step: http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browsers-Cache
   •Close this last browser window.
   •Open a new browser window.
   •Go to DRF.com and click on the link to open Formulator. Login when prompted.
   •Select a card and race. Enter in notes for multiple horses in multiple races. Hit the "Save" button. Use the "Cancel" button to    close the window.
   •Open Notes button again and see if all your notes saved.

Q: What is the best way to use the new main navigation menu in Formulator?
A: We've made a great deal of changes in the global navigation to Formulator. You may be used to clicking "back" and "forward" on your browser to move back and forth between sections, but we strongly encourage you to instead make use of the main navigation buttons, particularly the new "Past Performances" button that will always take you back to the most current race you were viewing - as opposed to clicking "back" on your browser to return to the PP.

Q: Why is there no data displaying in the new Beyer Graphs?
•Sometimes the data does not load the first time you access a Beyer Graph. We are working on correcting this bug. In the meantime, try clicking on "Past Performances" on the left side of the main navigation menu and then coming back to the Beyer Graph.
•You may have it set to "Show none" by default in the Settings menu.

Q: I can't make changes to the Settings menu because the Save button is too far down on the page?
A: We are working on adding a scroll bar so that everybody will be able to view the save button. In the meantime, please try to change your screen resolutionto a higher setting. That will make the menu smaller and possibly allow the Save button to display on your monitor.

Q: Why are there sections that do not fit on my screen, such as when the track names do not display on the Card Menu Selection?
A: If this occurs on the Card Menu Selection screen, try reloading the page and then the names of the tracks on the left should load. We are working on a fix that will ensure the application works on all sizes of monitors. In the meantime, please try to increase the screen resolution on your computer to a higher setting. That will allow more elements to fit on the page. You can still adjust the actuall Past Performances to any size you wish by using the Settings menu.

Q: Why can't I use the scrolling on my mouse or touchpad (Mac) in the Card Menu Selection area?
•You may have to click somewhere in the card selection menu first before scrolling becomes active. This is especially the case with Internet Explorer browsers.
•The touchpad scrolling does not work on certain types of Mac operating systems and/or browsers on Macs. We are working to fix this.

Q: Why are some items grayed out on the main navigation?
A: With the new global navigation for Formulator, not all of the functions are always going to be available depending on where you are in the application. Always click on the "Past Performances" button on the left side of the main navigation menu to return to the PP view and all functions will become available again.

Why can't I print selected races from the conditions page?
A: Y ou can only print the entire race card or the conditions from the conditions page. To activate the options for printing one race or specified races, you have to be in the Past Performance view (just click on any race).

Q: How do I change cards?
A: Click on the "Cards" button on the top left side of your screen, just below the DRF Formulator logo and it will take you back to the main card selection menu. Note: If you are in tab viewing mode, the main card selection menu will always be one of your open tabs. Clicking on that tab will be your quickest path back to the menu.

Q: Where is the Print function located now?
A: "Print" is a dropdown menu on the top right side with a small printer icon. Select your option from the dropdown menu and click on the blue printer icon to create your customized PDF race card.

Q: How do I customize the PPs now that the "Options" menu is gone?
A: The "Options" menu is now called "View" and it is a dropdown on the right side of the PP itself. All of the same options are included.

Q: How do I access TicketMaker?
A: TicketMaker is the second link from the right on the very top right of your screen.

Q: What are the new features in the Formulator Web redesign?
A: See below for the most prominent changes and enhancements:
•Tab navigation is now available to open multiple race cards quickly and navigate easily between them. Go to "Settings" and select "Open Card in New Tab" to activate this new feature.
•Enhanced Beyer Graphs give you a visual comparison of how the horses in the field have cycled in and out of form. Access the Beyer Graphs from the main PP navigation "Charts and Graphs."
•The new Jockey search allows you to find all the mounts on a race card for a specific jockey. Select a jockey from the dropdown menu and click on the search icon. Keep clicking on the search icon to find the jockey's next mount on the card. The search function also includes Horse and Trainer as it always has but is now easier to access and use directly from the main navigation of the PP.
•Streamlined navigation reduces the number of clicks you need to get around to the different sections of Formulator. For example, clicking on "Past Performances" on the main nav will always take you back to the last PP you were viewing. All data reports and PDFs will now load smoothly into Formulator instead of opening a new tab or browser. Also, the race-by-race dropdown menu includes the available wagers for the entire card so that you don't have to click back to the Conditions page.
•Print the entire race card directly from the Conditions page without having to click into a specific race.
•Inline race charts in the PPs dating back five years, which is the same as "lifetime" for most active horses.
•Unlimited Replays for all running lines in a PP

Q: How do I access Formulator on an iPad or Android tablet?
A: We are currently working on a tablet version of Formulator with enhanced touch navigation. In the meantime, Formulator is in fact accessible on your tablet by loading flash-viewing applications such as Puffin Web Browser, Splashtop Remote app.

Q: How is the new card selection menu organized?
A: The Cards are now broken up into three columns: Today, Upcoming and Previous. The very first column will always represent today's race card for that track. Then as you scroll right you will see Upcoming race cards in reverse chronological order (newest cards will show up first).

Q: Why can't I get the tabs function to work properly in Internet Explorer?
A: For IE browsers, go to Tools > Internet Options > Tabs-Settings and check the box that says "Let Internet Explorer decide how pop-ups should be open"

Q: On the main card selection menu, why can't I scroll down the page on Internet Explorer?
A: You have to click anywhere into the main card selection menu first to activate scrolling. We are working on a fix for this bug.

Q: On the main card selection menu, why can't I use two-touch scrolling on my Mac?
A: This is a known bug which we are working to fix quickly. In the meantime, you will have to use the browser's vertical scrolling bar on the right side to scroll down.

: Why am I having trouble printing while using Safari?
A: Safari's pop-up blocker tends to prevent the Formulator Web print window from opening up. To avoid this issue, turn off your Safari Pop-Up Blocker through the "Edit" menu. To see a screen shot, click here.

Q: Formulator Web is not working on my computer. Now what?
A: Formulator Web works on any browser that has a suitably updated version of Adobe's Flash Player plug-in installed (you must also have JavaScript enabled). Click here http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates/ for a list of links to download Adobe's Flash Player plug-in based on your operating system. If you have downloaded Adobe's Flash Player plug-in, but are still not able to access Formulator Web, please email FormulatorHelp@drf.com with a detailed explanation of your problem.

Q: Can I save race cards using Formulator Web?
A: Yes, you can save race cards as PDF documents using Formulator Web. By clicking "Print," you can convert your race card into a PDF document. As a PDF document, you can now print it or save it to your computer.

Q: How can I change the look and feel of the PPs?
A: Click on "Settings" on the top right of your screen. From there you can access the "Zoom" option and/or change the font sharpness or font thickness by clicking "Profile Settings" in the navigation bar and adjust the two sliders in that menu.

Q: Can I add notes to old race cards?
A: For any race card you've purchased/downloaded, you can go back and add notes to that day's charts. You can go back to Jan. 1 of the previous year to add notes to previously purchased race cards. You can also add Notes by accessing the Race Charts from specific races in the running lines of a horse or in the five-year Race Chart archive, available exclusively with your Formulator subscription.

Q: I am a databaser. How do I export data from Formulator Web?
A: Click on the Export Center on the very top navigation menu on the right.
