Roadmap

Development & Vision

The establishment of the Form Focus website aims to consolidate the most valuable historical information that horse racing owns. 

By collecting, verifying and publishing this information, the FORM FOCUS ambition is to provide the Thoroughbred Industry of Australia with its own accurate databank that can be updated, expanded and maintained forever.

Quite simply, FORM FOCUS has the capacity to establish a lasting legacy of immeasurable value - on behalf of the Australian Thoroughbred Racing Industry.

The Roadmap

Form Focus has mapped out these five key objectives for 2021:

  • “Australia’s Greatest Races” to be populated with the statistical history (Form Focus-style) of all 74 Group 1 races currently conducted (over 7,000 races)
  • “Group 1 Trainers” to be populated with the Top 30 All-Time Australian G1 winning Trainers
  • “Group 1 Jockeys” to be populated with the Top 30 All-Time Australian G1 winning Jockeys
  • Form Focus Feature Race Charts to be uploaded to the site – a total of 202 Feature Races to be covered in 2021
  • Form Focus Fact Sheets to be uploaded to the site – a total of 30 Group 1 races to be covered in 2021

Beyond 2021, Form Focus has identified these 4 objectives for completion:

  • Adding all past (or discontinued) Group 1 Races to the “Australia’s Greatest Races” category
  • Adding all Group 2 and selected other feature races to "Australia's Greatest Races" database
  • Building out the Group 1 tables of Trainers and Jockeys to list the Top 100 in each category
  • Researching and tabulating all International Group 1 wins achieved by Trainers and/or Jockeys and adding to the site

Naturally, the updating of Group Race results to the site will be maintained so that the Industry can access accurate and real-time statistics.
