Keeneland tote board, 1993

Posted on April 5, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

Preparations for the Keeneland Spring Meet, April 1, 1993. The tote board shown here was initially put up in 1978 but had to be quickly rebuilt before the 1986 Spring Meet after being destroyed by a March storm. It was then torn down after the 2006 Spring Meet and was replaced with the LED tote and video board used today. That new board displays Trakus video race technology, a first for a track in the U.S. From sensor chips carried in saddle cloths and antennas positioned around the race track, the Trakus system would then track each horse in a race electronically and digitally in real time on the video board. The 2018 Spring Meet starts Friday. Photo by Frank Anderson | staff file photo
