|Ranking Feature Introduced on equibase.com|
“Fans of any sport derive immense enjoyment from the study of statistics, and racing fans now have another method to slice, dice and explore free data,” said Hank Zeitlin, president and chief operating officer for Equibase Company. “The ranking tool provides an informative way to look at how any horse or person measures up to their competition.”
When fans visit equibase.com to view profiles for horses, jockeys, trainers, and owners they can now see where a horse or person currently ranks in a wide variety of ways by earnings and by wins. The rank is displayed immediately once the user filters for the categories they want to see.
This interactive feature follows the introduction last year of customizable leaders’ lists and periodic updates of the data throughout all of Stats Central, which gives fans the ability to follow the sport in a more real-time fashion.
Another recent addition to the Stats Central section of equibase.com is a listing of all North American record times for dirt, turf and all-weather surfaces for each distance raced.
Equibase Company is a partnership between The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Racing Associations of North America and serves as the Thoroughbred industry’s official database. Through its website, mobile platform and mobile applications, Equibase offers a comprehensive menu of wagering products, statistical information and video race replays in support of the North American Thoroughbred racing industry.
