EQUIX stands alone with its ProStride™ high-speed digital stride analysis. Each horse's breeze is analyzed with slow motion and freeze frame technology, allowing us to calculate Stride Length, Stride Quality, Efficiency, and other key variables that have been identified as performance predictors in two-year-olds. These efficiencies are present, regardless of the breeze time.
Our EQUIX ProStride website hosts our breeze show videos and are available for viewing at no charge. The videos are posted in a multi-speed, slow-motion format.

EQUIX 2YO Selection
ProStride data can be ordered on an entire sale basis or by hip number.
For each Breeze Show you receive:
- Average Stride Length
- Gallop-Out Times
- Quartile Rank

American Anthem (ProStride Qualifier)
EQUIX Selection Services
EQUIX offers selection services at all major two-year-old auctions:
OBS, Fasig-Tipton, and Barretts.
EQUIX's approach is the most comprehensive in the industry.We use our own ProStride stride length data, but take the process a step further with detailed Motion Analysis. Key Areas include:
- Hind leg placement
- Foot strike timing
- Launch and landings
- Body position and trajectory
We start at the consignors' training centers in Ocala each February, watching the two-year-olds train and breeze over their dirt training tracks. The consignors also show us the horses at the barn, giving us a great chance to see them in their own, quiet environment. We continue this approach prior to each sale's breeze show. We watch the horses train at the sales grounds, continue with conformation and soundness inspections, and gather as much information as possible about each individual.
After the Breeze Shows, horses that meet EQUIX's stride criteria are inspected again at the barns and re-evaluated for body structure, conformation, and soundness. The final step is to apply our Biomechanical and Cardio Analysis which gives us detailed projections on racing performance.
EQUIX's method is the most complete evaluation of a Thoroughbred at racing speeds. By adding Biomechanics, or structural analysis, to our Motion Analysis, we can predict how the horse's body measurements will influence racing efficiency beyond that initial eighth of a mile breeze.
Horses that move with more strength and efficiency have more success at the race track.
