Anybody heard of a machine named "Sprint Track", made by Dennis Jezzard?

I meant to answer this in 2012! Better late than never.
I've just disinterred my machine from deep storage (indoors - not underground). It's a large countertop game for one or two players who race against each other and the machine by firing balls into the horseshoes. Each hit causes the horse to pulse forwards. Good fun! If either player beats the machine (white horse), a free go is awarded. The pace of the white horse can be adjusted by the operator.

Its a bit like my Derby Day except mine is an upright floor standing machine which dispensed a big pack of Players cigs if you won. I got it from Friargate Waxworks in York when it closed down 20 plus years ago

I'd be interested to see a picture of your Derby Day.
Like many slot machines, the format is borrowed from an old funfair favourite which usually took the form of a roll down game like this huge one I spotted in the Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen.

Here's another incarnation - United's Derby Roll of 1955:

My Derby Day is also in storage but I will dig it out and take some pics. It has 3 horses galloping around an oval track at the top and the player has to fire a ball 'allwin' style up onto the playfield which drops down over pins and through gates marked 1, 2 or 3 and is returned to be fired again as long as the horses are galloping. The player chooses which horse is thought to win beforehand and if the ball passes through that chosen horses numbered gate during play it moves that particular horse faster. If the players horse wins it drops a pack of cigs. There is a central horseshoe that rotates on the playfield that can also catch the ball. The machine is around 6 feet tall and has a cassette tape sound track of a racecourse. There was a second version called Gold Cup
