Australian Turf Club Unveils Live Weather, Wind Data At Four Racetracks

Racing at Royal Randwick

Punters and racing industry participants will have access to live weather, wind and track information under a new digital service hosted by the Australian Turf Club and sports and racing technology experts tripleSdata.

The ATC Weather Tracker provides wind speed and direction, rainfall, humidity and air temperatures – updated live in some cases every 15 seconds – and from multiple points across a racecourse.

Linked to the industry-leading weather service will be information and data relating to tracks, including soil compression and water content, in addition to regular and current information of track ratings and rail positions.

All information will be available via mobile app, the Australian Turf Club website, broadcast platforms and across on-course TV screens.

Rosehill Gardens and Royal Randwick including meetings on the Kensington track will be the first to have the service starting from Saturday 20 August for the opening Group 1 race of the season the $750,000 Winx Stakes meeting, before the technology is further rolled out at Canterbury and Warwick Farm.

The information will be invaluable to trainers and participants as well as Racing NSW Stewards and Australian Turf Club tracks teams throughout racedays.

Australian Turf Club Executive General Manager Racing and Wagering James Ross said the service would be a leader in world racing.

“The ATC Weather Tracker provides instant and accurate information to punters, owners and on course customers and ATC Members, as well as all across the racing industry at Sydney racecourses,'' Mr Ross said.

“Punters can view via detailed graphics winds speeds, directions and weather conditions from every angle of our racecourses and as they change throughout a day.
“Sydney's world-class racing now has an extra new world-leading service for punters.''

Carlos Santo founder and CEO of tripleSdata said: “tripleSdata has been working for over two years to develop and deliver this industry-leading weather technology to Australian Turf Club racecourses for the benefit of punters and industry professionals.

“Weather plays a key role in how a track is prepared and ultimately races; it's a vital component to how horses perform.''

The release of the ATC Weather Tracker coincides with further new links to training tracks and trainers information at Australian Turf Club training centers and stables.
