|Today’s Racing App Now Features Additional Entries and Results, Access to Entries Plus|
Equibase Company has expanded the number of days of entries and results availability, included access to Entries Plus™, and added carryovers to its Today’s Racing™ app, bringing many of the features available from the mobile site to its popular app, it was announced today by Equibase Company eBusiness Operations and Development Manager Chris Dawahare.
The Today’s Racing app, which can be downloaded free at itunes.com and play.google.com, now includes up to seven days of entries and results from every track in North America. Previously, only two days of entries and two days of results were available.
Fans using the app to view entries can also access Entries Plus, an Equibase product that provides free information on every horse in three visual categories — bar charts, line graphs and color bars — in addition to an overall snapshot category for each race. Fans can sort columns, add and delete only the horses they want to see, and touch the graphs to reveal specific data on each horse.
Available carryovers from every track are now also included within the app.
“The launch of Today’s Racing two years ago made it easier for fans to follow racing right from their phones,” Dawahare said, “and now with more entries and results, direct access to Entries Plus and all carryovers, it’s made the app even better. We are already working on the next set of enhancements as we see the popularity of this app continue to grow,” he said.
The Today’s Racing app was developed by The Jockey Club Technology Services Inc., which also developed the Equibase Racing Yearbook™ app and Equibase’s mobile website.
