This procedure scientifically measures 'penetration' and 'shear', the two forces which the horses' hooves exert when they hit the ground.
TURFTRAX GOINGSTICK READINGS
All UK turf racecourses publish a TurfTrax GoingStick reading alongside their official description of the going.
The GoingStick measurement scale ranges from 1 to 15 – a lower reading means the ground is softer or slower, a higher reading means it's firmer or faster.
