Have You Been Frustrated
Attempting To Solve A Problem With
No Clear Solution?

The Australian racing industry has struggled to solve the crossover problem for decades – odds are you’re the same.

Between Race Clubs looking to deliver safer and consistent track surfaces, owners investing significant sums on horses, trainers with their reputation at stake, punters looking for accurate reporting and the day-to-day operations of managing track facilities, the variable is the same – hard crossovers.

Jockeys and horses running at high speed on well-presented and forgiving turf surfaces risk serious injury when hitting a rock-hard crossover in stride.

Are Dense, Rock Hard Crossovers Causing Any Of The Following Headaches?

Are you worried about the risk of injury to both jockeys and horses?

And the stark contrast in firmness between track and crossover can cause serious injuries to jockeys and animals travelling at high speed…

Are your track managers noting increasing maintenance costs?

And you want to slash the overheads that come from regular track irrigation andand placing grass clippings over your hard road base for appearances.
Take out enjoy minimal grooming on race day.

Are you concerned about the appearance and profile of your crossover?

And you understand the importance of visual appeal and stride cushioning when hosting televised races, attracting trainers and building public confidence…

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you’re ideally placed to solve the problem of hard crossing that’s affected every Australian Race Club… until now.

Introducing ECA Crossovers:

The World’s First Equine Safety Mat
System Delivering Consistent Density
Between Track And Crossings.

At Equine Crossing Australia (ECA), we understand your
need for track accessibility. At the same time, after
recognising the significant risks of animals transitioning
from soft and forgiving turf to a hard crossover at high
speed, we developed a world’s first track and
crossover solution.

With our scientifically designed and tested ECA
crossovers, you can minimise the risk of injuries to both
jockeys and horses without compromising the
accessibility needs that support the day-to-day
management of your track.

Here’s How ECA Crossovers Work

ECA Safety Mat System:

Laid first for drainage and cushion in the lower portion of your crossover profile and to reduce bottom-up compaction to footing without compromising safe infield access.

Green Synthetic Surface:

Top layer green synthetic to blend to your current turf surface provides optimal support and performance via the addition of polymer blend and fibre to help absorb impact and reduce injuries.

High Drainage Rate:

ECA Safety Mat System drains at 20,000mm per hour to easily drain water from the surface and alleviate your current problems of potential dangerous soft spots.

Minimal Maintenance:

High drainage rate and consistent density from track to crossing means minimal upkeep day-to-day with grooming only needed for presentation on race day. Removal of contaminants is essential.

“I rode on the new ECA Crossing that is installed at Flemington last Friday. It was the safest crossing that I have been on in Australia. The horses felt great and showed no signs of even knowing that the crossover was there. These should be installed all
around Australia”

“I recently Rode over the new ECA
crossover at Flemington,
it was fantastic with a Rebound
feel, not like most others that are rock
hard and potentially dangerous.
The horses stride approaching the
green crossing just like the turf, did
not alter and there was no feeling the
horses were backing off towards it.
Great job ECA!”
