On the Acceleration and Speed of a Racehorse [06:25]
Horse racing uses a running start where the starting gate is placed back from the point where the race clock starts. This video tries to answer the questions: 1. How fast does a horse get from the gate to the start? 2. How fast is it going when it gets there? and 3. How does this speed compare to its speed at the finish? I use the technique described in my earlier video "How to Measure Instantaneous Speed with a Camcorder" to answer these questions. It makes use of interlaced video to display two images displaced in time by half a frame time, about 1/60sec.

2012-03-31 Turffontein - race 8 [02:04]
Slumdogmillionaire wins the GRADE-1 SA Classic.. The main event of the 12 race program, the SA Classic Grade-1 for 3 year olds over 1800m, saw Team G represented with Slumdogmillionaire and Brooks Club, both drawn out wide at 11 and 12. There were no slip ups at the jump this time for Slumdog and he bounced straight out to take lead and set his own pace throughout. Brooks Club didn't fare as well and he ended up widest of all, mid-field with nowhere to go. Turning for home Slumdogmillionaire once again took a bit of time to get going and halfway down the straight he was under pressure as race favourite Gimmethegreenlight slipped past him. The changeover was short-lived however as Slumdogmillionaire kicked into finishing gear to retake the lead and stay there. Pomodoro flew up at the death and did everything but tag Slumdogmillionaire on the line in a decision that had to go to the judges.. ..and SLUMDOGMILLIONAIRE! by a nose, jubilation for the connections and followers and another Grade-1 under the belt for Team G Racing. Slumdogmillionaire earned his owners Messers J. Sarkis and A. Greyvensteyn a cool R1.25million for the win, recouping his purchase price and surging into profit with a massive future still to come. Brooks Club who raced widest throughout, was unable to produce his trademark acceleration down the straight and finished 3 lengths back in 5th position. His turn will come.

Turbulent Descent - 2011 Test (G1) [01:42]
In the week leading up to the 86th running of the Grade 1, $250000 Test Stakes, trainer Mike Puype called the Saratoga fixture a "resume" race for his 3-year-old star Turbulent Descent. Puype traveled east from his base at Del Mar in search of greatness, and his brilliant bay daughter of Congrats delivered the signature performance he was looking for, winning the seven-furlong Test in electrifying style Saturday at Saratoga Race Course. With powerful acceleration at the three-sixteenth pole, Turbulent Descent surged out and around leader Roman Treasure and on to a 3 ¾-length victory over a resilient Pomeroy's Pistol in a time of 1:24.17. Roman Treasure finished third. As the 4-5 favorite in the field of eight, Turbulent Descent returned $3.90 for a $2 win bet. The $150000 winner's share of the purse pushed her career earnings to $828350. In the winner's circle after the race, Puype quietly championed Turbulent Descent, who has now won six of eight career starts, including two other Grade 1 races in California.
