InCompass Introduces Spanish Simulcast Programs Service

InCompass, the leading supplier of simulcast program pages to simulcast wagering sites across North America, today announced the expansion of its Simo-Central service to offer simulcast race programs for North American racing in Spanish.

According to Brad Kimbrell, InCompass vice president of sales, the Spanish simulcast program service benefits racetracks and wagering outlets in the Caribbean and Central and South America licensed to simulcast North American Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse races, as well as domestic tracks and wagering outlets with a need to supply programs to their Spanish-speaking customers.

“The introduction of Spanish simulcast programs on Simo-Central enables simulcast facilities throughout the Western Hemisphere to tailor the presentation of simulcast program information to their customers,” he says. “Serving the information needs of the Spanish-speaking markets will help drive handle on North American Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing, which will benefit the domestic racing industry as well as the industry in the markets in which wagers are placed.”

Simo-Central is InCompass’ centralized gateway for racetracks and simulcast outlets to produce their own customized simulcast race programs. The Spanish simulcast programs include all the statistics contained in InCompass’ traditional simulcast programs, including recaps; indexes on owners, trainers, and horses; and statistical pages such as their Facts & Figures and Top 10 jockeys, trainers, and horses. The format is identical to that of InCompass’ most popular program layout and will soon be offered in additional formats.

“We will be adding Portuguese in the near future and have the ability to add other foreign languages as market demand increases, further benefiting the international simulcast market for North American Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing and those tracks here in North America with fans who speak different languages,” Kimbrell says.
