|New Horse Search Feature on equibase.com|
Will Serve Horseplayers and Potential OTTB Owners
Equibase Company LLC, the Thoroughbred industry’s official database for racing information, has unveiled a horse search feature on equibase.com that consolidates and presents in one convenient location the most current racing and pedigree information for individual Thoroughbreds.
“This latest innovation on equibase.com will undoubtedly enhance the user experience for serious horseplayers and casual fans alike,” said Alan Marzelli, chairman of Equibase Company. “It is also a perfect complement to The Jockey Club’s free Tattoo Identification Services and will serve as a valuable tool for potential owners who are considering retraining and second careers for off-the-track Thoroughbreds (OTTBs).”
For actively racing Thoroughbreds, equibase.com horse search provides a wealth of data about the subject horse, including notice of current entry to race; results information with links to free charts and race replays; recent workouts; summary race record; and links to equineline® products, including a free five-cross pedigree and an enhanced premium edited pedigree. For older Thoroughbreds, the horse search provides a summary race record, if the horse raced, and links to equineline products.
Equibase Company is a partnership between The Jockey Club and Thoroughbred Racing Associations of North America. Its website, equibase.com, features a comprehensive menu of free entries, results and race charts as well as premium handicapping products from past performances to selections for handicappers of every skill level. The site is also home to Virtual Stable®, which provides e-mail notification of entry, result and workout information for horses that fans want to follow. Virtual Stable also offers seasonal “race series” notifications, a once-daily report of activity for contenders for the Triple Crown races and the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
