The National Thoroughbred Racing Association, Breeders' Cup Ltd. and Magmic., announced the launch Wednesday of the first officially-licensed horseracing wireless video game in North America, "Breeders' Cup 2004."
NTRA Purchasing officially opened its new office in Lexington May 11, a move officials said is a sign of growth for not only the National Thoroughbred Racing Association but the racing and breeding industry at large.
Adoration, the longest shot on the board, went wire-to-wire to take the Breeders' Cup Distaff – Presented by Nextel (gr. I) by 4 1/2 lengths, a shocking beginning to the 20th Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships at Santa Anita.
Subscribers of Nextel wireless Internet service can now access the NTRA's Web site through the service's home page.
