Racing fans will soon be able to place bets with a bookmaker on their mobile phone as races are being run, thanks to advances in GPS technology and data transmission times which could change the betting landscape for casual and committed gamblers alike. Detailed information on sectional times within races, precisely how much ground each horse has covered, its stride length and pattern, and how quickly it clears an obstacle over jumps will also be more widely available, as racing starts to fully appreciate – and exploit – the wealth of data it generates.

The Guardian understands that a leading online bookmaker will announce the launch of in-running betting within the next few weeks, and others are sure to follow its lead. Customers will bet via an app which presents data on the position of every horse in a race with an average accuracy of no worse than 0.1m, and with a time-lag of 0.1sec or less from live.

Post-race, information including every runner’s speed at different stages will be available for analysis by punters and professionals as they try to understand the result in more detail and identify horses whose performance may have been affected by positioning, interference or the way the race was run.

“Big data”, in other words, is finally coming to British racing, and not before time. Previous attempts to extract speed and other performance data from races have run into a range of obstacles, including the wide variety of tracks and layouts in Britain and the sheer intensity with which a race such as a five-furlong sprint can unfold. There were doubts, too, about the market for the information, but a number of technological advances mean that live data, in particular, should now have significant value.

“We couldn’t have done this even two years ago,” Will Duff Gordon, chief executive of Total Performance Data, a company leading the way in speed sensing technology, said on Friday. “The original milestone was in 2000, when Bill Clinton allowed civilian access to military level accuracy, but over time governments have invested more and more. Glonass is the Russian satellite we can connect to and hasn’t been available to non-Russians for that long, and Europe has its own system called Galileo, which is coming on stream now.

“The positional fix comes down from the satellite, hits our tag [in the horse’s saddlecloth] and our tag reports back to the grandstand and on to a customer, comfortably within 0.1sec. In terms of real-time position fixes getting to customers from the horse’s back, it’s pretty much live. I don’t think anyone can come close to us in terms of the latency [lag] of the content, and what we’ve now done is to find a market for that content.”

Initially, that market will be bookmakers and punters, and casual, quick-fix punters in particular. The margin – or over-round – built in to the in-running prices is likely to be significant while the bookies test and develop the new market, and refine the algorithm generating the odds. The odds may not compare favourably, for instance, with the in-running markets on Betfair, which have been a feature of the exchange since its launch, but as increasing numbers of exchange backers appreciate, the Betfair markets are dominated by racecourse-based players with access to the fastest pictures of the action.

If shrewd punters looking for real value in the bookies’ in-running markets may be disappointed, however, they should find much to interest them in the wealth of data which every race creates, both on the Flat and, in time, over jumps.

“We can’t wait to do it for the jumps,” Duff Gordon said. “We’re going to look at things like how much ground is lost over fences, meaning the speed and fluency of jumping. We’ll need a bigger boat to tackle jumps at the same time, but the hardware will all work. It’s more to do with the software and finding your timing points, because they will be fences and not furlong poles. There will need to be survey data for all the fences, and we need to deal with things like when the race starts, because they go round in circles and then start. But we’ve done a couple of jumps fixtures and that’s going to be a project in the first quarter next year.

“The same box [which transmits GPS data] can also report live how many strides per second the horse is doing, and we will start to release stride-length data at the end of October, which is another exciting development.”

And it is not only the horses whose performance will be scrutinised as data capture and analysis increases. Which riders are the most dependable when it comes to finding an efficient path through a race? How long, on average, does it take a jump jockey to get his mount over a fence, and which jockey’s mounts are the slickest at the business end of a steeplechase? The list of questions that could soon have a sensible answer is almost endless.

A horse race is an ephemeral blur of speed, colour and chance, and some might prefer it to stay that way. But technology now promises to provide an x-ray, to reveal its internal dynamics in increasing detail, and those who choose to look may find the fascinations of a 250-year-old sport are not diminished, but enhanced.

WINX has made it 21 straight wins after obliterating the field to win the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes at Flemington Racecourse.
The champion mare never looked challenged as she sat comfortably near the front runners around the Flemington turn before putting the foot down and surging out to a lead of a few lengths in the blink of an eye.
Leading by up to eight lengths with 100m still to run, it will be remembered as one of the six-year-old’s greatest performances.
The bay took out the 2000m race without a challenge from the field. Ventura Storm finished second ahead of Humidor in third.
Jockey Hugh Bowman never looked threatened as he steered the his champion horse to a $300,000 pay day for the Waller stable and Winx’s connections.
“It’s a dream to be a part of this,” Bowman said.
“She’s a great horse and it’s a privilege for me and my family to be part of this.”

Frankie Dettori has expressed his joy at the news that the star filly Enable will remain in training next year. The Italian jockey, whose astute riding helped her to an emphatic success in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe nine days ago, received the news on Monday morning after dropping in to see her at John Gosden’s stable in Newmarket.

“Obviously, I’m delighted,” said Dettori, who also offered his thanks for the decision to her owner, Khalid Abdullah. “I gave her a few polos this morning and said hello and I was told then. To me, she’s the filly of a lifetime, so of course I’m made up.


“What she’s done this year has been phenomenal. Everyone who likes racing wants to see her again next year, so it’s great news.”

Asked if Enable, a rapid improver since making her racing debut less than a year ago, could develop into an even better horse next year, Dettori laughed raucously and replied: “All she has to do is be the same.”

From a low-profile beginning, Enable became Europe’s standout Flat racehorse of 2017, winning five top-class races on the bounce from the Oaks in June to the Arc four months later. Having been beaten in a £10,000 race at Newbury in April, she is now the winner of £3.8m and is rated within 2lb of the best fillies to have raced since WWII by the respected Timeform organisation.

Racing was abandoned before the second-last race at Kempton on Saturday evening after a serious incident in the stable yard.

Racegoers were not aware of the medical emergency before the announcement to abandon racing was made over the public address system before the 8.45 race.

Director of racing Barney Clifford could only confirm: "Due to a serious incident in the stable yard racing has had to be abandoned."

Paramedics are understood to be attending an injured groom in the stable yard but no more details are available at this time.

Anyone affected by the incident can seek support through Racing Welfare. There is a 24-hour helpline on 0800 6300 443 and online live chat is also available at www.support.racingwelfare.co.uk.

Colin Tizzard has put a line through Finian's Oscar's run at Sandown but ruled out a quick reappearance at Cheltenham this weekend.

The Grade One-winning novice hurdler had won his first two over fences without much fuss, but dropped to two miles for the Henry VIII Novices' Chase he was never in real contention.

After an early mistake he was always being chased along by Robbie Power before finishing last of three finishers.

"We don't really know why he didn't lie up last week. Was it all pace? I don't know. We will put a line through it and you can see he wasn't quite himself," said Tizzard.

"He doesn't appear that way at home. We will wait three weeks and find a race for him, then start again.

"We might do that and go for the Dipper (Cheltenham, New Year's Day), but at this moment I wouldn't think we would go to Kempton (Kauto Star Novices' Chase on Boxing Day) - things change, but we are not going to run him this weekend, anyway."

One who could be in action over Christmas in the Kauto Star race is Elegant Escape, already a Grade Two winner.

"There is a very good chance he will go to Kempton on Boxing Day. He is a lovely horse and he did it well at Newbury," said Tizzard.

"He has progressed. I am sure there are some good novice chasers out there and he has got to climb the ladder, but he is going the right way."

Impressive novice hurdler Slate House is due to run at Ascot on Friday week after winning both his starts to date.

"He will go to Ascot (Kennel Gate Novices' Hurdle). That is his race. He has been fine and has just been in general training. He is a lovely horse," said Tizzard.

"We could have gone anywhere with him, but this is what we thought we would do. He will be tested next time, but he has not really been tested yet. You can guarantee at Ascot he will be.

"If the ground gets heavy that will be a factor. Presentings haven't handled deep ground as well as good, so that is a factor. If we get beat we know where we are. We have done two ordinary novices, now we have got to have a go at a better one."

Jockey Hayley Turner expressed her disappointment on Thursday after a "stupid error" resulted in her licence being suspended for three months.

She will not appeal against the decision of the disciplinary panel, handed down after a hearing at BHA headquarters in London which dealt with her betting on horses while a professional licensed jockey.

Turner, who initially retired in November 2015 but has ridden intermittently since and more regularly lately, was found in breach of rule 53D in that she placed bets between December 2015 and July 2017 while licensed.

The bets were placed on a Paddy Power account she opened in her own name in December 2015 and were drawn to the BHA's notice by the bookmaker this August.

For the vast majority of the period under scrutiny Turner was a licensed jockey and thus prohibited from backing or laying horses, but in her own mind she appeared to lead two separate lives, one in which she could bet and one in which she couldn't.

ouvan, who had been general 3-1 second favourite for the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase, will miss the rest of the season, trainer Willie Mullins revealed on Sunday.

Mullins said: "I haven't been happy with Douvan over the past few days. He appeared to have recovered from the problem that ruled him out of the Tingle Creek but he has been intermittently lame since we started doing more with him during the week."

He added: "I've spoken to his owner Rich Ricci and because of the calibre of horse Douvan is we've decided to take a conservative approach. Consequently he won't be running this season."

The seven-year-old, beaten only once in ten starts over fences, is a six-time Grade 1-winning chaser.

He last ran when suffering his only defeat over fences at the Cheltenham Festival in March, when he finished seventh in the Champion Chase. It was discovered he had suffered a stress fracture of the pelvis.
