Interactive Harness Barrier Draw Template For Live Broadcast
Development of the interactive "drag & drop" PowerPoint macro presentation for use during live barrier draws for Group 1 Harness Races, generally broadcast on Sky Racing television. Using PowerPoint allowed the template to be transportable, used by graphics novices, and portable across different user computer systems. As the nominee horses were drawn randomly to match the barrier, the name of the horse could be dragged and dropped into the corresponding barrier number for that row, this has great significance in betting and predicting the outcome of the race.
