Physiologist Believes Sensors Could Protect Race Horses


A respected equine physiologist who for decades has examined performance data in an effort to improve results for Thoroughbred owners and breeders believes race sensors that track horse movement better than the human eye could provide another tool in the industry’s efforts to prevent catastrophic breakdowns.

In an April 8 seminar for the University of Kentucky’s Equine Gluck Equine Research Center, Dr. David Lambert, founder of Equine Analysis Systems in Midway, Ky., said the same scientific approaches used to examine equine physiology that have helped breeders produce grade 1 winners and buyers find top-level horses can be applied to prevent catastrophic breakdowns.
