RaceMate has been updated to version 10.5 in September 2010. Here are the changes since version 10.0.
Boxes for Storing Calculated Values
Seven storage boxes are added. You can store any value into one of the boxes. All views share the same storage boxes. That means once you store a value into a storage box, the value in it can be accessed in any views. Values storage in a starter view can be accessed in a history/stat view as well. Storage box values will be kept until you quit RaceMate. Open the help page for Box( ) to learn more.
Standard Deviation and Variance in History/Stat Views
Two new statistical items "Standard Deviation" and "Variance" are added into the History/Stat Views.
Data on the Speed Power page of the Hong Kong Jockey Club website
Two sets of functions are added to return data on the Speed Power page of the Hong Kong Jockey Club website. See HrPowerFigure( ) and HrPowerComments( ) on the "New or Changed MCL Functions" section below.
Penetrometer and Clegg Hammer Readings
A [Penetrometer..] button is added onto the top right the "Race Data" form. Click on it to show the Penetrometer and Clegg Hammer Readings of the course. You may also use the new MCL functions HrPenetrometer( ), JrPenetrometer( ) and SrPenetrometer( ) to retrieve the values into a column of your views.
The Jockey Silks Form
The Jockey Silks form was added into the Hong Kong edition in January 2010. Now Jockey Silks form is also functional in Macau edition. You may open the jockey silks form from the race data form and barrier trial form in both the Hong Kong and Macau edition. Open the Jockey Silks help page for detailed operations of the form.
New or Changed MCL Functions

The functions return the comments on horses on the Speed Power page of the Hong Kong Jockey Club website. In Macau edition, these functions return blank values.
