Coursetrack sectional timing Q&A

Q: Which racecourses will sectional timing and data be available for?

A: Timing information produced on Racecourse Media Group (RMG) racecourses will initially be made available for the major festivals before being rolled out to all RMG racecourses in the coming months.

Q: What is Racecourse Media Group’s involvement

A: RMG has invested in Coursetrack’s tracking system, which collects in-running positional data for all horses during races.

Q: What is Coursetrack?

A: Coursetrack is a UK-based technology company specialising in the delivery of data within sport. For more visit Coursetrack.

Q: How does the tracking system work?

A: Horses carry lightweight GPS trackers, designed to fit within the saddlecloth. The trackers then send their low-latency GPS data directly to RMG’s production centre in Ealing, West London, via mobile networks. This means there is no need for antenna installations on course. The centre will utilise both pictures and talkback to ensure accuracy and reliability.

Q: What can the tracking data be used for?

A: Tracking data has many different applications, including the production of performance data (e.g. sectional times) and the ability to add to the broadcast production of horse racing, which can enhance the enjoyment of races and also be used as a valuable betting tool.

Q: What are sectional times?

A: They are the times taken for each horse to complete a section of a race, usually a furlong.

Q: What can they tell us?

A: The data offers a plethora of information, such as the time taken for each horse to cover each furlong, the total distance travelled and the in-running position of each horse. It enables us to calculate the average speed of every horse throughout the race and the top speed it reached over any one furlong.

Q: What sort of things should I be looking for?

A: There are many different possible answers to this, but James Willoughby’s article provides a perfect illustration of what we should look for. As he says, pace makes the race. Racehorses run best when their energy is used optimally; in most cases, this means the jockey must regulate their mount's effort as evenly as possible, taking into account the distance of the race and the bends and undulations of the track. Sectional times are recorded continuously through a race for each horse, using GPS technology to record its position at each instant. The analysis of the data can then provide valuable information as to a horse’s performance. For more, visit here.

Q: Where will the data be published and which races will it be available for?

A: The data will be available via the racecourses’ and Racing TV’s Twitter accounts and websites around 30 minutes after every race. Where possible, Racing TV will also be analysing the data on the TV channel.
