We are hopefully going to be hearing a lot more about sectional timing - more importantly, what sectional timing tells us about how horses performed and races were run - this season and beyond. With that in mind, I thought I'd offer a little refresher... to myself as much as anyone!
I, and Tony Keenan before me, have written about the subject and I'd encourage you to read those articles:
For those who want to get stuck into the mechanics, I highly recommend Simon Rowlands' Introduction to Sectional Timing, which you can download here.
If you favour speaky over reading, the video below is part 'why sectionals' and part 'how it works round here' and includes the answer to the crucial question, "How do I switch it on in my geegeez setup?"
Secure a beverage and give it a peruse if you fancy...
Oh, and any questions, leave a comment below. If I don't know the answer (quite possible), I will try to find someone who does.
