AbstractA race condition extraction unit extracts the past race results, which are the object of statistics, based on the race conditions of a target race. A factor extraction unit extracts effective factors, which are factors related to arrival order by sorting the extracted race results in arrival order. A factor conformation judgment unit judges whether each competitor participating in the target race conforms to each extracted effective factor and attaches a score to each competitor based on the judgment result. A race prediction unit predicts the race result of the target race based on both an analysis result obtained by the conventional method and the score attached by the factor conformation judgment unit. In this way, the statistics of past race results can be used in race prediction.
