German Tote Chooses TPD for Comprehensive Horse Racing Data

The collaboration between German Tote and Total Performance Data (TPD) marks a significant stride in the availability of race tracking and data monetization. This strategic alliance covers all 19 thoroughbred racecourses and multiple harness tracks across Germany.

Commencing with Berlin’s Hoppegarten, the partnership is set to launch at the onset of the turf season in late March, promising a comprehensive and enriched horse racing experience.

German Tote acknowledges the multifaceted enhancements horse tracking brings to the sport, with live running orders prominently featured on racecourse big screens. TPD is entrusted with delivering data feeds and in-play odds to elevate engagement and boost betting turnover.

Beyond showcasing live race graphics, German racing enthusiasts will benefit from cutting-edge sectional timing and stride data provided by TPD. This partnership expands TPD’s racing data portfolio to include renowned races like the Deutsches Derby and the Grosser Preis von Berlin, aligning with prestigious global events such as the Dubai World Cup, Ascot, the St Leger, Melbourne Cup, and Breeders’ Cup. This development follows the recent merger announcement between TPD and tripleSdata, Australasia’s largest live racing data company.

The Managing Director for German Tote, Riko Luiking, said:

After a careful review and trials of different systems, like many others, we chose TPD. It has a great system, significant experience and represents value for money. We have also been impressed with its hardware partner, GMax, who is already underway and expecting to have all 19 racecourses live by August.

The Chief Executive Officer for TPD, Will Duff Gordon, said:

We’re so pleased to welcome German Tote and German racing after over a year of work between both teams. It’s important to produce in-race performance metrics to boost interest in German horse racing, especially its classics, with breeders, punters and horsemen ready to act on the content. On the back of our recent merger with tripleSdata, it’s great to keep up the momentum as we surpass 120 worldwide racecourses.
