Stevenson & Associates was founded in 1984 by David Stevenson, who held management positions with the New York Racing Association and Ontario Jockey Club.
The National Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association has hired a consultant to help it better understand on-shore and off-shore simulcasting markets.Stevenson & Associates will assist the National HBPA and its affiliates in analyzing signal dissemination sites and sub-dissemination sites so horsemen know where signals are being sent. The company will work strictly in an information-gathering capacity, officials said."I've read quotes that while annual U.S. handle on Thoroughbred racing is around $15 billion, the rest of the racing world wagers around $85 billion," National HBPA president John Roark said. "If we hope to tap into that market someday--and I believe we will--horsemen need to be involved and informed."
