This high performance, shock reducing urethane pad is designed to make the thoroughbred racehorse more comfortable by reducing the shock of concussion. Joints and ligaments are less stressed, which can improve performance. The pad is applied with a chemical bond, making it an integral part of the racing plate impervious to water and other liquids. Soreness and irritation, which are often encountered by equine athletes, is virtually eliminated.
Features include sole pressure relief and open nail holes for easier nailing.
