Thoro-Graph Launches Sales Analysis Data Exclusively on

Thoro-GraphTM, whose proprietary performance figures have been utilized by professional handicappers and horsemen alike for the past 27 years, has unveiled Thoro-Graph Sales Analysis Data. The new products are designed specifically for the auction sales market and available exclusively on, the online pedigree service of The Jockey Club Information Systems (TJCIS).

Thoro-Graph Sales Analysis Data encompass four separate reports that use Thoro-Graph’s proprietary Performance Figures to measure racing ability and tendencies of a stallion’s runners, and runners within the first two generations of a sale entrant’s pedigree. Thoro-Graph Performance Figures take into account weight carried, ground loss, effect of wind on final time, and track “speed.”

“Thoro-Graph Sales Analysis Data enable breeders and buyers at auction to identify trends, strengths and weaknesses within the racing history of a particular hip number’s immediate family,” said TJCIS Chairman and President Carl Hamilton. “This information can aid not only in the selection of sales purchases but in the subsequent management of their racing careers.”

The Thoro-Graph Sales Analysis Data consist of the following four reports: Thoro-Graph Sire Profile, Synopsis for a Sire’s Runners, Synopsis for a Dam’s Runners and Full Sheets 1st and 2nd Dam. Additional information, including a sample of each report, is available at

Through September 30, customers can order and download one copy of each of the Thoro-Graph Sales Analysis Data products for free. They are available as Product No. 49T.
