TPD Q1 Highlights

By TPD CEO Will Duff Gordon In 2015 I hit the jackpot in owning a horse who was invited to Meydan. Short Squeeze was a highly competitive miler off a strong pace or a head strong yak off a slow one. Hence my interest in pace and the Trakus or Turf Trax data. James Doyle […]

TPD Ride of the Week – 06/03/2023

The final All Weather Championship Fast-Track Qualifier for the Marathon Division is the TPD race of the week and yet again features our friend FLEURMAN, twice already the subject of this blog. Although only 5 ran, this was a race with a lot going on. All runners carried 9st 6lbs and it produced a great […]

TPD Ride of the Week – 27/02/2023

TPD’s timing data this week focuses on the performance of Shadwell’s ‘RABAAH’, who put in an impressive performance at Wolverhampton (18.30) on February 27th and could well be a ‘TPD Rising Star’. RABAAH was third behind the subsequent Group 2 placed ‘Show Respect’ as a two-year-old on his only start and he built on his […]

TPD Ride of the Week – 20/02/2023

Two weeks ago, TPD’s data flagged up FLEURMAN’S performance at Wolverhampton (9st 12lbs) as the TPD Race of the week in a painfully slow time! Well, surprise surprise, FLEURMAN came out again at Newcastle (10st 1lb) on February 22nd under a cool ride from Kevin Stott to land the 2 Mile contest and put himself […]

2023 Saudi Cup Preview

If this year’s race is a gruelling test of stamina, Country Grammer looks to have a huge chance for Frankie Dettori. But, if it’s a test of speed, Taiba arrives with some extraordinary talents. Bob Baffert has his bases covered in the sense of arriving with 2 horses with quite different ways of winning the […]

2023 Asian Racing Conference

By TPD CEO Will Duff Gordon The Tale of Two Continents… First up, an enormous thank you to the team who organised this semi annual conference. Hosting, steering and feeding 700 global delegates takes huge effort and I can attest to near perfect execution! By far the most interesting thing about last week resulted from […]

TPD Ride of the Week – 13/02/2023

Performance of the week for last week goes to DILIGENT HARRY, the winner of the fastest 6F performance at Newcastle since October 2022. It’s well known that Newcastle’s Tapeta surface has slowed in recent times and very few recent performances have come close Standard (Par) time. The last horse to run faster over the same […]

TPD Ride of the Week – 06/02/2023

It is not often a Flat race is run over 10 seconds slower than Standard and over 13 Seconds slower than the track record, but that is exactly what happened on Tuesday Feb 7th in the 18.30 at Wolverhampton run over 2m 120yards. When you consider that 1 Second equates to approximately 5 Lengths in […]

TPD Ride of the Week – 30/01/2023

There was no Dr Jekyll when Jack Hyde went miles clear to win at Newcastle early last week! Owner/Jockey, John Reddington sprang one of the great surprises and hopes his steed will quality for a bumper at Cheltenham. They deserve to. The speed chart tells the story in MPH. He set a quick but not […]
