Just days after being identified as one of the deadliest horse racing tracks in the United States, Churchill Downs introduced a number of safety measures that it says it will begin incorporating this year.
An ambitious experimental study was conducted to compare ground reaction forces and hoof accelerations among dirt, synthetic and turf racetracks. Force measuring horseshoes and accelerometers were attached to the front hoof of three Thoroughbred racehorses, and each horse was exercised at the trot and canter on each surface while an onboard computer recorded the data.
In this episode, Arizona farrier Eric Billingsley shows the 4-Star gooseneck trailer and truck he relies on to navigate the hilly, desert country he calls home.
