Kerry M. Thomas has a new tool for analyzing horses — it’s called THT — that, I believe, will be a huge benefit to horses and horsemen alike in the future. Our conversations started at the intersection of horse racing and baseball — his brother played pro ball; my sons play at the youth level — and gravitated to his specialty, which he explains best in the video below.
He sent me the following un-edited message today on Facebook to update me on his progress:
“Thank you Sid, indeed, our progress is moving rapidly, and our global launch is beginning a massive sweep as the THT methodology is finding its own way into India on their heels as seen by my “traffic reports” and translated downloads.In Japanand the USA EthoGrade is ready for the private customer, trainer, owner, bloodstock and even Jockey. EthoGrade is a great tool, foundation point from which to build and monitor, pre-purchase, and expanding into lay-ups as now we are on a serious convalescence case with a horse gaining a new prosthetic hoof. The possibilities for the industry, as this research is fast revealing, may be monumental. Pedigree is one thing, yet many times what separates Win/Place/Show/healing…, is the mental aspect like our own athletes. It’s between the ears that counts. Elevate the horse’s herd dynamic, you increase the potential, and that is a natural fact of life for the herd animal.”& Dubai circles here the last few weeks, with Russian racing and
