|Summary Performance Data Added to Equibase App In Advance of Breeders’ Cup|
Equibase Company has added summary performance data for every horse entered to race within its popular Equibase app, it was announced today by Equibase Company President and Chief Operating Officer Jason Wilson. The Equibase app was relaunched in August with a contemporary look and the new Smart Pick™ betting tool, among several other enhancements.
When viewing entries within the app, users can click beneath each horse’s basic entry information for the expanded view, which includes the horse’s past three races with links to the chart and a video replay. Each summary line includes the date, race, race type, finish position, and Equibase Speed Figure earned.
Other data elements such as earnings per start and top Equibase Speed Figure, which were added to entries as an enhancement in the initial launch of the app, are now viewable as part of the expanded summary performance information.
Smart Pick creates a suggested ticket based on a set of user preferences such as risk tolerance and wager amount while placing extra emphasis on aspects such as trainer, jockey, or horse pedigree.
“We developed Smart Pick ideally as a tool for new fans being introduced to the sport who might not have the time or experience to analyze pages of past performances,” Wilson said. “Now with the addition of summary performance information, we are providing the next logical step in teaching those fans how to use more in-depth handicapping information – all within a free app.”
The Equibase app can be downloaded free at itunes.com and play.google.com.
A premium version of the app that does not have in-app advertising and provides a free daily past performance and selection for a selected race is also available.
