Keeneland Wins Simulcast Award

Annual award presented to Lexington track at simulcast conference.

For the fourth time, Keeneland was judged the winner of the Simulcast Award presented recently at the International Simulcast Conference in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The Simulcast Award honors excellence in the presentation of a racetrack’s live race product to its simulcast outlets and a panel of five judges selected Keeneland as best among 12 North American racetracks entered for consideration.

The 12 track entries were the actual simulcast audio and video transmission of a single race sent to wagering outlets. Each entry included the pre-race features, odds, will-pays, commentaries, the actual running of the race, the results, and post-race features.  Keeneland’s winning entry originally aired April 23, 2011.

The judges cited Keeneland’s “superb, sharp video and an excellent maximization of the picture frame to encompass both the action of the track during the paddock walk and warm-ups as well as the pertinent odds info along with a streamlined Trakus presentation providing an enhanced viewing experience.”
