STATS LLC, the world’s leading sports technology, data and content company, and Equibase Company, the Thoroughbred industry’s official database, have entered into a strategic partnership to develop products and services for horseplayers. The announcement was made by STATS’ Executive Vice President for Strategic Relationships, Bill Squadron, during his presentation at the 63rd annual Round Table Conference on Matters Pertaining to Racing in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
“Combining the skill set and sports technology capabilities of STATS with Equibase’s data and expertise will be a win-win for both avid horseplayers and new fans to the sport,” said Squadron. “The predictive algorithms we have developed for other sports have natural applications that will be leveraged for horse racing. We couldn’t be more excited about the possibilities.”
STATS has been established as a world leader in sports technology for football, baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer. The partnership with Equibase marks a new arena for STATS to enter and will provide an unprecedented product to Thoroughbred racing enthusiasts.
“Equibase closely monitors how other sports use data to serve their fans, and we have been very impressed with STATS and their suite of offerings, in particular those for Major League Baseball and soccer’s Premier League,” said Equibase President and Chief Operating Officer Hank Zeitlin. “I am confident our collaboration with STATS will result in a truly innovative product that is unique to anything else currently on the market.”
