in original speed ratings the rating of 100 was given to the time equal to or creating a new track record. Numbers above 100 are a different rating system, there are many. The mainly accepted one in the usa is the beyer numbers used in the DRF. They can go above 100 because they take into account the "par times" associated with the track class and conditions. Even so, these figures can be adjusted but thats generally the difference. What the speed ratings in this game ever meant was never clear to me since in the orginal speed ratings a horse was one point below the winner for every 1/5 (or length) behind the winner. This game does not follow that pattern, the ratings drop off more drastically which I never got an explanation of nor does it really matter now. I just decided when figuring speed ratings that the top figure and/or ratings when the horse wins were mostly what counted.. a 5th place finish usually will have a very low figure which I ignore since I don't think its as realistic..
