|2011 Online Fact Book and State Fact Books|
Now Available on The Jockey Club's Website
The Jockey Club today published the 2011 editions of the Online Fact Book and state fact books within the Publications & Resources section of its website at jockeyclub.com.
The Online Fact Book is a statistical and informational guide to Thoroughbred breeding, racing and auction sales in North America and includes some state and provincial analysis. The state fact books provide detailed breeding, racing and auction sales information specific to each of 34 states and Canadian provinces.
“We produce the Online Fact Book as a service to the industry and as a way to benchmark trends in the Thoroughbred industry, both domestically and internationally,” said James L. Gagliano, president and chief operating officer of The Jockey Club. “In a similar vein, the state fact books provide valuable insight into trends at the state and province level that can be used to assist state and provincial Thoroughbred industries with education and lobbying efforts.”
The Online Fact Book and state fact books are updated monthly.
