This number is the average variant-adjusted time for all dogs starting from each post position in recent races. (Variant-adjusted times are times that have been normalized to take care of fast and slow days on the track. This adjustment makes times more comparable between days and over long time periods.) With this information, you can see exactly how much speed benefit a greyhound will enjoy in its post position in this race.
