Fine Equinity's MD Tim Jones has embarked on a month long trans America marketing visit from 18th April taking in 5 states, delivering multiple demonstrations of the equinITy performance monitoring system and having dozens of conversations with the great and good of the USA horse racing world.
Starting in Florida to attend the Ocala Breeders Sales 2 Year Olds In Training Sale, Tim was well placed to bring the many benefits of using equinITy collected data to the attention of leading consigners. Demonstrations were given at a number of the many pre-training centres around Ocala, followed by a short visit to Miami to spend morning track work at both Gulfstream Park and Palm Meadows, facilitated many conversations with trainers at those tracks ensuring significant exposure to equinITy and the insights it provides.
Kentucky in the week leading up to the Kentucky Derby was the next stop. Mornings at Churchill Downs Racetrack and the Churchill Downs Training Centre in Louisville were combined with time spent at Keeneland and The Thoroughbred Centre in Lexington. A highlight of the visit to Kentucky was meeting the team behind the 2015 Eclipse Award winner and Champion Sprinter, Runhappy. Laura Wohlers and her husband Kelly and the expert equine physiologist Bill Pressey have guided Runhappy through his unconventional training regime with the benefit of performance monitoring to deliver the optimal fitness programme. His success on the track with three Grade 1 victories during his three year old year against older horses and including the Breeders' Cup speaks for itself.
Following a journey from east to west to California, Tim arrived in San Francisco for a brief visit before driving to Los Angeles for demonstrations to the Santa Anita racehorse training community.
Next stop Maryland and New York during the week leading up to the Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown! Tim is in the USA until Monday 23rd May. If you would like to get in touch you can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling his US Cell: +1 407 435 1666
