This work proposes a robust model to analyse the structure of horse races based on 2D velocity vector information. This model is capable of detecting scene breaks, classifying the view of the contenders and extracting the trajectory of the contenders throughout the race. The performance of the system is tested over six video clips from two different broadcast sources. The performance analysis shows the model achieves a high accuracy of view classification with the lowest value of 83%, all in real time.
