Thoroughbred Handicapping: "Does Weight Matter?" is a 9 page treatise plus an appended 10th page that portrays scientifically derived adjustments for divergence from condition or assigned weight at 10 racing distances. An overview of surprising legal interest in weight morphs into how it was back when. Then a reminder of high school physics segues into weight for age first introduced in the mid 1800's. Topics such as sex allowances and what counts as weight carried then transitions toward the quantification summarized in the appendix. 10 Pgs.
