Horses race at Listowell after Coursetrack’s implementation | Coursetrack

Coursetrack, an in-race timing information system, has been successfully installed at 25 Irish racecourses, the company announced on Friday.

The data began being broadcasted on-screen and published online for 25 Irish racecourses since the start of the year. Coursetrack worked closely with Horse Racing Ireland (HRI), the Association of Irish Racecourses (AIR) and each individual course during the installation process. The system is operated by Racecourse Media Group (RMG)’s timing partners, Coursetrack. Horses carry GPS trackers, designed to fit within the saddlecloth, during the race. In-race data for all races in Ireland–including race clock, leader’s speed, leader’s time per furlong and distance to finish–is provided to networks, including RTE and Racing TV, for live broadcasts.

Chris Murtagh, operations director at Coursetrack, said “We are delighted that the implementation and operation of Coursetrack has been so well received by racecourses in Ireland. Listowel, which raced on Sunday, was the 25th racecourse to successfully deploy the system, and we hope Laytown–which is staged on a beach–will complete the full set of 26 Irish racecourses in September. I’d like to thank all Irish racecourses, who have been a pleasure to work with and are now, along with their audiences, benefitting from this ultra-reliable, low-latency and easy-to-interpret data.”
