German Tote and TPD ‘enrich the sport’ through tracking deal

The German Tote has partnered with Total Performance Data (TPD) for race tracking and data monetisation across all 19 thoroughbred racecourses and several harness tracks in the country.

The deal with the horse racing data provider starts at Berlin’s Hoppegarten for the beginning of their Turf season in late March. Meanwhile, TPD is also tasked with providing data feeds and in-play odds to bolster engagement and betting turnover.

Riko Luiking, Managing Director of German Tote, stated: “After a careful review and trials of different systems, like many others, we chose TPD. They have a great system, significant experience and represent value for money. 

“We have also been impressed with their hardware partner, GMax, who are already underway and expecting to have all 19 racecourses live by August.”

The Tote also emphasised that it recognises the ‘numerous ways in which horse tracking can enrich the sport’, stating that live running orders displayed on racecourse big screens are a ‘significant aspect of its appeal’. 

“We’re so pleased to welcome German Tote and German racing after over a year of work between both teams,” added Will Duff Gordon, CEO of TPD.

“It’s important to produce in-race performance metrics to boost interest in German horse racing, especially their 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.”

In addition to showcasing live race graphics, German racing punters will gain insights from sectional timing and stride data that TPD delivers.

The deal means that races such as the Deutsches Derby and the Grosser Preis von Berlin will now join prestigious events like the Dubai World Cup, Ascot, the St. Leger, Melbourne Cup and Breeders’ Cup within the racing data portfolio of TPD.

This also follows the news of the recent announcement of the merger between TPD and Australasian live racing data company, tripleSdata.
