The home of thoroughbred dosages in Australia

This website is a resource for Australian and NZ students of the study of dosages in thoroughbred racehorses.  While a lot of information on dosages is held on Dr Roman's sire, Dr Roman writes about the US and European model of dosage.  He also focuses on the dosage index and dosage profile, which are mathematical equations that he created.  These are very important, but perhaps his focus has missed a little of the true nature of the original method described by Vuillier, and later modified by Varola.  We respect Dr Roman's work, and without it, most would be unaware of dosages.  Our aim though is to improve understanding of the thoroughbred, and this means that we need to take all factors into account.  In particular, Australian and NZ breeders have established a unique product and we retain our own influences that have been fairly unique to our own racing.  These are often neglected by the rest of the world.  We owe a great debt to Mr John Hutchinson of Scone Bloodstock Services for the work he has carried out in classifying these influences.
