Total Performance Data (TPD), the world’s leading horse racing live data provider, has announced today that Jeremy Doig will be joining their board as a non-executive director.

Jeremy has been omnipresent in Silicon Valley since the late 90s. He brings over 35 years of experience building category creating products at the intersection of media and technology, including leadership roles at the BBC, Microsoft, Disney, and 18 years at Google. He most recently held the position of chief technology officer of Disney+ where he ran the streaming division’s team of over 2,500 developers working on technologies for ESPN+, Hulu, Star+ and Disney+.

The addition to TPD’s board comes after an exciting year of expansion which has seen it install its industry-leading technology at several racetracks around the world. Their US footprint has now extended to Aqueduct, Belmont, Saratoga, Churchill Downs, Ellis Park and Louisiana Downs. In Canada they have added Assiniboia Downs with Club Hipico Santiago in Chile, Hyderabad in India and the King Khalid Racetrack in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia all now leveraging TPD’s broadcast graphics and bookmaker integrations.


TPD Chairman, Eamonn Wilmott said: “We are incredibly excited to have Jeremy join the board of TPD at what is a pivotal time for racing globally. Attracting a technology visionary like Jeremy isn’t easy and it’s a testament to the remarkable work done by the TPD team and their racetrack partners that he is joining us.

“Everyone in racing is united about the need for greater engagement with our sport’s customers, and crucially for our future customers. Adding someone with Jeremy’s ideas and experience will help us build the best technologies available to grow the sport.”


Doig added: “The opportunity to work with Eamonn and his team in the rapidly growing area of real time sports telemetry leverages my experience in embedded realtime systems, machine learning and computer vision.

“It really is a perfect intersection and business opportunity, and I look forward to rapidly accelerating our products and expertise in this domain.”


Will Duff Gordon, TPD CEO, noted: “It is clearly a coup getting someone of Jeremy’s background and stature to join the TPD board, we couldn’t be more delighted.

“We have spent more than five years and many millions of pounds developing our In-Play odds algorithm that has recently been deployed across UK and US racing with great success. Building on TPD’s commitment in remote sensing, realtime computer vision and machine learning systems, we are excited to continue to grow our engineering talent to accelerate our roadmap in this fast-moving area.”
