Turf Paradise will be on the cutting-edge of horse racing innovation on April 30, 2011, when the EquiSight helmet camera system will be used during the track's Arizona Breeders' Day races. The EquiSight camera system allows viewers a first-person perspective of the racing action, putting the fan in the middle of the heart-pounding excitement.
The EquiSight camera will be worn by all jockeys in two races. Following each race, the video replay from the winning horse will be shown by Turf Paradise to give fans a new way of seeing how the race was won.Pretty neat. I'd like to see the helmet cam in a crazy calvary charge like the Kentucky Derby, but I'm guessing after a furlong, all you would see is mud. That's why this particular race video is on the turf. I couldn't find videos from yesterday races online, only this one posted Mar 28.
If a helmet cam had been on Frankel's jockey in yesterday's 2000 Guineas, all you would see is grass.
