Mehmet Kurt is a businessman whose ‘revolutionary’ method of training racehorses could transform the world’s bloodstock industry.
Under the so-called Kurtsystems – which reduces the risk of injury to thoroughbreds by removing potential jockey error in early training – young horses undergo screening to
determine their physiological capacity and proceed to be trained in harness on a mono-rail
system. Gradually, and safely, they become accustomed to carrying the equivalent ‘bulk’ of a jockey by having small weights placed incrementally on their back. ‘Mr Kurt’, as he is
known, claims that in Turkey, his prototype system is a proven winner. Now, the Kurtsystems is being introduced to Lambourn, where Mr Kurt is building his own equestrian centre at Kingwood Stud. The British racing industry awaits with interest.
