View Full Version : Looking for equine datasets

10-10-2005, 01:45 AM

I am new to this list. I am an Open University student in England.
My next year's studies will be an Artificial Intelligence project of
my own choosing. I am interested in Thoroughbred breeding theories
and would like my project to be concerned with this field in some way.

Firstly, of course, I need to be able to locate suitable data,
otherwise, no project!

Can anyone point me in the direction of any or all of the following.

+ Biomechanical data of racing or breeding Thoroughbreds.

+ X-Factor (large heart gene on the female X chromosome) data in Thoroughbreds.

+ Mitochondrial capacity/efficiency data for Thoroughbreds.

Broadly-speaking I would like to do something along the lines of
investigating the possibilities of an AI system classifying potential
racing Thoroughbred performance against biomechanical or genetic

I would be grateful for any assistance whether direct or of the
direction-pointing kind.
