The Distance Plus Test
The results of the Distance Plus Test will help you to:
- Refine optimum race distance through analysis of a more complex range of genetic markers
- Produce more early-maturing or classic types depending on your preference
- Increase strike rates and earnings through optimised training and racing decisions
Building on any results generated from The Speed Gene Test, the Distance Plus Test further refines the predicted optimum race distance to within a couple of furlongs, sub-categorising the Speed Gene types into “Short” or “Long” (e.g. C:T – Short or C:T – Long).
The Distance Plus Test, launched in 2016, analyses 50,000 genetic markers to provide an enhanced level of information when combined with The Speed Gene Test. As with all technologies, the products developed by Plusvital scientists continue to evolve and improve.
Each horse tested gets a separate result for all major race regions, since the intended race region for the submitted sample will not be known.
Please note that the Distance Plus Test may only be used in conjunction with The Speed Gene Test.
