    Going, track condition or track rating are the terms used to describe the track surface of a horse racing track prior to a horse race or race meet. The going is determined by the amount of moisture in the ground and is assessed by an official steward on the day of the race. The condition of a race track plays an important role in the performance of horses in a race. The factors that go into determining race track condition include the surface conditions, type of surface, and track configuration. The surface conditions are influenced by the type of surface factoring in soil type, and if the track is dirt, turf, artificial surface; plus surface density, porosity, compaction and moisture content.

The site is trying to become the local entertainment destination for 20 somethings in the cities mentioned above. So far they are doing pretty well – from January 2007 to July 2007, the site grew twelve-fold. Going has said that their future plans consist of expanding their platform and moving into new markets.The two venture capitalists who have led investments in Going and sit on the board, George Bell and Bob Davis, used to be rivals. They respectively lead Excite@Home and Lycos.There are many other event sites out there including Zvents and Eventful, but most aren’t focusing on the 20 something crowd. Another site that could be looked at as competition is nightlife social networking site LateNightShots, but it’s currently dedicated to Washington DC.
