Track Maintenance

The new Magnetic Track Conditioner and Harrow are innovations designed to make the racetrack surface safer. The magnetic bar picks up nails and metal debris that can cause great harm to horses and jockeys. Metal scrap in the track has the potential to cause career ending foot injuries or blind a horse. It could do even worse harm to a jockey.

This innovation is just one more way Horsemen’s Track and Equipment, Inc. helps make the track as safe as possible. If maintained properly, this equipment will last a lifetime.

Our magnetic bar is also available separately and can be retrofitted to existing conditioners or harrows.

Track superintendents have been amazed at the quantity and size of the metal picked up at their racetracks by our magnetic device. Many injuries have been prevented, and continue to be prevented, by the use of our Magnetic Track Conditioner and Harrow.

“The track magnet recently supplied on a new harrow is a great track safety feature. I am amazed at the scrap that it picked up from the track.”
