first_imgShare Simon Rowlands ends tenure as Chair of racing’s Bettors Forum December 3, 2018 StumbleUpon Ascot adds three-year extension to Sky Sports Racing deal August 14, 2020 Submit is due to give punters the ability to study racing form in more detail after launching a new sectional timing data service. The new service, which will be developed by sectional timing expert Simon Rowlands, will colour-code split times from eleven racecourses owned by Arena Racing Company (ARC), which will identify fast, even and slow sectors relative to “par times”. Powered by Total Performance Data (TPD), the service already shows sectional and stride data from all ATR’s UK Flat racing fixtures. The Flat racing sectional data and colour code system is also widely used in Sky Sports Racing broadcasts.Rowlands explained: “As with Flat racing where the benefits of sectionals have been proven time and again, jump race results are often determined by the pace at which races have been run. Go too fast early and you will pay for it late; go too slow early and you may be left with too much ground to make up at the business end. “The only truly accurate and consistent way to measure these things is through sectionals. These TPD figures make that possible to an extent that did not previously exist.”Punters will also be able to view energy distribution charts, efficiency gradings and sectional speeds (mph) for every runner across the early, mid and late parts of each has also confirmed that it will condense racing data from earlier sections of each jumps race, while also delivering a more extensive analysis of last mile data. It is hoped that the new function will give punters more control and the ability to select how they see information published.Matthew Taylor, Director of New Media and Innovation for At The Races, added: “It has been an ambition to extend our sectional timing service to jumps racing for some time and we are delighted to launch with all ARC jumps courses this season. We think visitors will use this new data in conjunction with our pace charts, archive video and form database to generate even greater insight into horse racing over jumps.” Related Articles Colin Hord named new chairman of Horserace Bettors Forum September 4, 2019 Sharelast_img read more
