Breeders' Cup Daily Turf Report
Breeders’ Cup First for TurfTrax GoingStick
TurfTrax GoingStick readings will be available for Breeders’ Cup Turf races for the first time this year following an innovative partnership with the specialist UK data provider.
TurfTrax, the Cambridgeshire-based technology company who developed the GoingStick in conjunction with the British horseracing racing industry, will provide enhanced information for inclusion in official Going reports ahead of this year’s 2019 Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Santa Anita on Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2.
The process of implementation begins with site mapping when a reference grid will be created, ensuring that data is collected at the same points on the track each time readings are taken. A total of three GoingStick readings are taken in every grid with each reading measuring penetration and shear, the two forces exerted by the horse’s hoof on the racing surface. Soil moisture measurements are also taken in each grid.
