Equibase Named Official Timer at Four Tracks


Equibase has installed a GPS system at Woodbine, Golden Gate, Laurel and Pimlico and has been named the official timer at those venues.

“Since the earliest days of the company, Equibase has sought a viable system of collecting data through automated tracking,” said Jason Wilson, president and chief operating officer for Equibase. “We are excited to be making substantial progress in this area and pleased to have partnered with both Woodbine and The Stronach Group.”

The benefits of GPS, in addition to timing, include the ability to provide comprehensive data for each runner during the entire running of the race, which can be used to drive on-screen graphics as well as positions and margins for charts.
