The New York Racing Association has introduced turf course updates to NYRA.com in order to provide the most accurate and timely information on each day’s grass races.
Racing fans can go to NYRA.com, click on the web banner titled, “Turf Course Updates,” and instantly see the track conditions and find out which races, if any, have been taken off the turf for that day. The updates are provided on the website shortly after the NYRA Racing Department has made its decision regarding the day’s turf racing, and could be posted as early as 8:00 a.m. EDT.
“This is extremely valuable information for a handicapper who is trying to refine his or her wagering activity for the day and does not want to wait until 11:00 a.m. to learn the condition of the turf course,” said NYRA president and CEO Charles Hayward.
Scratches and changes are uploaded to NYRA.com at 11:00 a.m. on live racing days. The addition of the turf course updates to the website will enable people to access the track condition information much earlier than when scratches and changes are announced.
