Selecting Racehorses using the Airflow Factors
By Dr. W. Robert
Cook · DVD · 90 minutes
Product # RM-02-151D ·
An in-depth look at airflow in horses!
The difference between a champion and a claimer is often less than 5 percent in ability. Many times that 5
percent difference lies in the way a horse breathes while racing. Straight legs and good conformation aren't enough. A champion must have a low oxygen demand and a
superior oxygen delivery system, or good airflow.
Dr. W. Robert Cook is the recognized authority on how horses breathe. He pioneered research into the connection between breathing and racing performance. Dr. Cook recently produced this video as a companion to his book,
Specifications for Speed in the Racehorse: The Airflow Factors, which is
now out of print.
In the DVD he thoroughly explains the airflow problem and demonstrates a new hi-tech device he has developed which instantly measures a horse's exact airflow potential. Using this new technology, Dr. Cook has found that 93
percent of stakes winning racehorses have superior airflow.
For those who have already read Dr. Cook's book, his DVD will be a welcome addition. You will be able to see exactly how the problem affects horses and learn the techniques of detection.
