The Association Of Various Speed Indices To Training Responses In Thoroughbred Flat Racehorses Measured With A Global Positioning And Heart Rate Monitoring System: This study utilised GPS and heart rate monitors to examine whether speed indices, including maximal velocity, duration at maximal velocity and acceleration rate changed with training. Training did not affect speed parameters but they were influenced by jockey, gallop condition and exercise distance.
