If we talk about a person's, company's, organization's, or even a product's track record , we are looking at their overall or total accomplishments performance and even their failures.

Okay, in which records of a particular horses ... well records or numbers were kept. So you know, how fast did he run ? How many races he win ? How many times did he place second or third ? Or anything like that. So maybe it could actually come from the horse's record as a track record. Okay.

Example number one. I think he could be a good possible replacement for our CEO of our company. Yeah. He has an excellent track record of turning around the other companies he worked for.
