The Equibase Company announced Aug. 5 it has expanded Thoroughbred racing’s footprint in the mobile applications market with the launch of Today’s Racing.
Today’s Racing, which can be downloaded free at itunes.com and the Android Marketplace, features current and next day entries as well as current and previous day results. Entries include links to handicapping products, scratches and program changes; results include links to result charts and race replays. A schedule of every track’s opening and closing dates is also provided.
“The app expands Thoroughbred racing’s presence among the vast audience of consumers who download apps from their phones and makes it easy for these consumers to follow and participate in the sport by presenting a rolling two days of entries, results and related information for every track in North America,” said Equibase Company president and COO Hank Zeitlin.
Today’s Racing was developed by The Jockey Club Technology Services Inc., which also developed the Equibase Racing Yearbook application and Equibase’s mobile website, which was optimized for Smartphone use.
