We start our explanation of Case The Race technology with a reference to probably one of the most successful thoroughbred breeders of all time, Federico Tesio.
"Federico Tesio (1869-1954) is the most successful breeder of Thoroughbreds in the history of racing. The horses he bred at his Dormello Stud on the banks of Lake Maggiore in northern Italy continue to have a genetic impact on Thoroughbreds around the world.
What is so remarkable about Tesio's success is that he was not a man of great wealth. He maintained a small band of inexpensive broodmares that the "experts" considered modestly bred. He rarely patronized fashionable sires and stood no stallions of his own. Yet the "Wizard of Dormello" turned out the likes of Ribot and Nearco, two horses who remain prominent in the pedigrees of today's most successful racehorses."
Clearly a success in his field, Tesio had this to say about evaluating horses.
"It is difficult to predict the race career of a young unraced colt just
by looking at it and without actual measurement"
We agree, and would add that the same can be said of wagering on thoroughbreds. Case The Race is dedicated to providing "actual measurement"
. Here is a bit about how we do it.
Much of our technology is proprietary and based on years of development at our company and at sister companies, but it is fundamentally rooted in the science of biomechanics and the application of statistics. Like many of you, our quest is to answer a question that has lingered for hundreds of years "What is it that makes one horse run faster than another". We think we have part of the answer.
There are four articles in our series explaining the technology. Please click the links below to view each article.
