How the times are split

We are using the most up to date technology to bring Interval Timing and Event Hosting into the next century, and we look forward to working with you and your committee!

At Interval Timing.com, we believe barrel races are won and lost based on finding the best track for your horse. We run a race that is timed to the 1000th of a second. That margin of time cannot be registered by the human eye. If your horse is on the best track, it is able to keep its’ momentum going, and shut the clock off in the fastest time possible. If there was a perfect size pattern to win the race, someone would be able to publish those findings, and the sport would die.
We believe our reports can help you determine if you are on the right “track” or pattern. Regardless the size of pattern, there are 3 barrels to turn and 4 straight a ways to navigate, and knowing how your horse clocks the best is what we aim to help you with. We all need to find the best turn possible for our horses so they can navigate the straights in the fastest manor. It is really that simple. Sometimes we need to give up a little more room or time in turns, to make the straights faster.

WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR WHEN READING A REPORT:
We aren’t saying there is only ONE track for every horse, but we can certainly point out problem areas you might currently be having. Our opinion is just that, an opinion. We will give our best interpretation, based on the numbers presented. We don’t know if your horse is sore, you change your bit, lost your reins, so we make our summaries based on what we see with numbers.

Common Scenarios:
• We consider a split to be the same or the right track if it is between -0.050 and 0.050 in difference. This is literally splitting hairs when it comes to shutting off the clock.
• A negative split difference (-0.125) can actually highlight problem area in your run just as much as a positive difference. Often if you have a faster split in one area, you will be losing more time before or after that split.
• A negative split difference in your turn is a sign that your barrel is too tight, and 98% of the time you will have a slower straight before and/or after this seemingly “quick” turn. Your horse needs more space to keep his momentum going.
• If your horse just needs to find a little more speed to catch those fast horses, you will generally see very minor differences between your run, and the Top 5 Average run in the majority of your splits. There are 7 splits to consider and if your horse is on the right “track” and your time is a second slower, your split difference should read about 0.142 seconds slower in all 7 areas. It should not vary much. If your horse isn’t on the right track your differences will be up’s and downs in various areas, and this is where we can pin point possible changes you could make in your run.
• If you have great times in your straights, and 2 slow barrels, and 1 fast barrel, you may have to keep an open mind about switching which barrel you take first. The clock doesn’t lie.

Please feel free to contact us with questions about your report and we will try and help. We aim to please!
