TPD is providing live race pace metrics to Sky Sports Racing for all available racedays.

Displaying the live race pace via a simple FAST/SLOW flag, TPD’s vast back history of data is fed into a bespoke algorithm, and is calculating the live pace for that exact section of that track.

Will Duff Gordon, CEO, Total Performance Data comments, “Bringing live data to racing on this scale in the UK has been a long term collaboration between TPD and Arena Racing Company. We are excited to be part of the team who are helping racing move towards a new phase of growth in the sport, driving interest via in-running stats and real time data.”

LEXINGTON, Ky. – A pilot project to use GPS technology to time workouts conducted in September and October at Keeneland Racecourse in Kentucky has proved the system can work in the future with a larger workload, the administrators of the project said on Wednesday.

Timing under the pilot project, conducted by Trackmaster, a subsidiary of Equibase, in partnership with that company’s technology partner, Total Performance Data, was conducted on a total of 16 days from Sept. 15 to the end of Keeneland’s fall meet on Oct. 27, according to David Siegel, the president of Trackmaster. While the system was used to collect workout data on only a handful of horses each day, Siegel said that “from a technology perspective, it proved it could work.”

Getting an in-running horseracing product that works

The vast amount of data now available means that horseracing is now a viable in-play betting market - what could that mean for bookmakers and the sport?

Will Duff Gordon joins the conference panel to give his insight into how in-running data can be used to create new products for horseracing betting.

Will Duff Gordon, CEO of Total Performance Data, looks at the stride data of St Leger favourite Kew Gardens in the first of a fortnightly series.


Total Performance Data has a clear goal – to have a timing sensor on every horse in every race around the world. Ambitious? Of course it is, but we are at least on the way to this with 12 racecourses set up in the UK, US and Canada and we do over 1,000 racedays a year, too. This number is rising fast. We’ve already timed and published data on 7,000 races and tracked over 50,000 runners.

SBC: At The Races set to launch stride data from ARC racecourses

Stride data, comprising metrics around Stride Length and Frequency, from Arena Racing Company (ARC) racecourses is now available on At The Races‘ website, in a development that has been dubbed “ground breaking.”

This marks the first time that stride information has been published on this scale, with it stated that data is being collected for every runner, by every furlong in all races run on ARC all-weather tracks.

TPD Strides - live stride data for horseracing

Petite Jack has a longer stride length than Toast of New York!

TPD Strides offers low latency, live stride data for the first time in the UK - and probably the world.

Stride data is calculated and transmitted live from every runner tracked by TPD. At The Races will be displaying this data, in addition to TPD's sectional and split times, in the coming weeks.

Offered as part of the Race Pace System, TPD Strides is a significant technical breakthrough after significant R&D.

Here is an example, taken from Race 4 at Lingfield Park on Wednesday, won by Toast of New York. Our data shows that Petite Jack, who came second, has a longer stride length than the winner.
