If I am reading the web page correctly this is not a new sulky, but an attachment to an existing sulky . And as of this morning I have yet to see one at Poconos .
Rumor has it that Tel Star bought the patent licence to manufacture and sell this device,it will be available on all Tel Star sulkies

Can someone put a little generator in the sulky frame to be powered by its wheels to generate enough shock to boost a horse's performance?

Much like a headlight on a bicycle powered by the generator at the back wheels.

And what makes you think the horse will go faster, the horse might stop on a dime.

Batteries used on TB's came to mind.

You could run a couple wires up the sulky shaft was my thinking (engaged/disengaged by driver/remote control).

I've heard of something like that in a whip, sounds cruel to me. Would not want to be on the business end of a swift kick from a thousand pound animal. A driver has no protection from a pissed off horse.
