Prototype for Testing Racetracks

Mechanical engineer and professor Michael Peterson chose Alexanders to manufacture the device he invented to duplicate the force produced by a running horse in order to measure the hardness and shear strength of racetracks. The data captured and interpreted is essential to injury prevention. The success of his racing surface testing device has gained global attention and has led to the gathering of data for premier racetracks such as Churchill Downs.

“Working with Alexanders is a pleasure. The parts were delivered on time, at a reasonable cost, and with a level of support that is unmatched in the business.  They will get all the work I have. This is a classy operation.”
