An innovative training system for racehorses is being constructed in Lambourn and is on target to be completed within the year.
Turkish racehorse owner Mehmet Kurt is building the pioneering machine, called the
“Kurtsystem” (pictured), at Kingwood Stud — which he has owned since 2011.
The method — which has cost £20m to develop — involves horses being loosely tethered
within spacious cabins that are powered by an overhead monorail. The speed can be set from walk to canter around an oval circuit of just under a mile.
