Facts & Features of Starting Gates

The starting barrier is crucial to successful horse-racing; together with the finishing line, its operation is scrutinised at every race and by everyone for all the time it takes to get a race started! During the key operations:


- getting the horses into the stalls,
- horses and jockeys awaiting the starters orders,
- the actual start and similtaneous opening of all the doors,
- and then the removal of the barrier from the track
Starting barriers must perform smoothly and reliably to avoid the nuisance of false-starts.
