NYT Cites Peterson’s Work with Horse Racing Association

Professor of mechanical engineering Michael Peterson’s work with the New York Racing Association was cited in the New York Times and Queens Chronicle following the deaths of 11 horses since late November while running at Aqueduct Racetrack. The New York Racing Association is working with Peterson, executive director of the Racing Surfaces Testing Laboratory in Orono, as one measure to ensure the safety of equine athletes and jockeys.
