Addington Moves Form Into The Future

Addington Raceway has become the first club to support in-depth punting data guide, The Ultimate Racebook.

Utilising data available through the StrideMASTER system which individually times every horse who races at Addington, The Ultimate Racebook will provide punters with crucial information on which horses have the speed to be prominent at certain stages of races.

It will also show “time equivalent” sectionals, breaking down how fast horses have actually run a certain sectional in after taking into account how much extra ground they covered.

“We are looking forward to working with Dan Cooney from The Ultimate Racebook to provide more in-depth information than has ever been available to New Zealand punters before,” says Darrin Williams, Racing Industry Manager for Addington Raceway.

Dan Cooney, created The Ultimate Racebook. “I first started working on this during the covid lockdown. As a keen follower of racing I was impressed with the amount of information StrideMASTER provides and thought about how that information could be presented to make it easier for punters when looking at form for a race meeting. Addington have been tremendous to partner with and we are very pleased to launch this week” Dan said.

The Ultimate Racebook and Addington will also produce a cheat sheet for each meeting to show which horses racing at that meeting has the most early and/or closing speeds to help punters find crucial value.
