Horse Racing Weights 2013


A lot has been written over the years about weight a horse has to carry and the bearing it has on the result.

This has been an especially contentious issue since those in authority started fiddling with the weight scale because jockeys were simply becoming heavier – as we all are through evolution.

So what difference does it make? As to the weight scale, with the difference between top and bottom is becoming compressed, I suspect less and less.

But let’s look at the figures in the cold light of day by looking at all winners at each weight level with no consideration of top to bottom differential so far in the 2013-2014 season (to November 5).

This is a graphical representation of all weights 53 kgs through to 63 kgs.

For period 1.8.2013 - 05.11.2013

For the "non-graphically" minded:
