About GMAX

Since the founding of Total Performance Data, the company have maintained an exclusive partnership with Gmax Technology Ltd, who provide products and services to monitor the performance and welfare of horses. Gmax use the latest sensors and wireless technologies to deliver insights into horse’s performance to maximise competitive advantage and welfare.

The Gmax Race System tracks all horses in a race and provides real-time data including speed, position, stride length, running order and timing. The lightweight low-cost GPS trackers are approved by racing regulators and designed for the rigours of racing. The system is portable and can be set-up and managed on race days by a single operator.

Data from the system is streamed at very low latency and used to power live TV graphics, in-field display boards, and novel mobile and internet animations of racing. It can also be accessed post-race to deliver new insights into horse performance and welfare.

The technology also enables new opportunities for interactive services, to improve the experience of organisers, competitors, owners and fans, and provide new channels for sponsorship and revenue.

As well as the trackers themselves, Gmax provide a full suite of accessories and services to allow the implementation of a complete solution. This includes the ‘Gmax Eye’, a wireless rechargeable optical timing system for precision timing, and the Gmax Graphics system, which renders the live tracking data into slick video visualisations to provide an out-of-the-box solution to broadcasters wishing to display the tracking data on live TV. The Gmax team can also assist in on site installation, and offers cost effective saddle cloth manufacture with pockets for the tracking system.

The Gmax Race system is the most widely deployed thoroughbred race tracking system, providing data used by regulators, broadcasters and racing professionals around the world. Our experience gained from tracking more than 500,000 horses over a seven year period means we are the market leaders for horse racing timing and data.
