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.
