|Equibase Launches Free Racing Yearbook App for 2016|
Equibase Company today announced the release of the Equibase Racing Yearbook app for iPhone and Android. The free app includes full charts and pari-mutuel payoffs plus video replays provided by Roberts Communications of all graded stakes races (including the Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup) for 2016 as they occur, as well as every graded stakes race run since January 1, 2010.
The Equibase Racing Yearbook app can be downloaded at itunes.com and at play.google.com. A web version of the Equibase Racing Yearbook is available at equibase.com. Users can easily find the information on the app by using the search feature for access via race name, horse, jockey, trainer, or racetrack.
“This free app enables horseplayers and racing fans to closely follow the graded stakes races as they happen throughout the year and relive their favorite horses’ biggest wins from the past six years – from American Pharoah to Zenyatta,” said Chris Dawahare, manager of eBusiness operations and development for Equibase.
The Equibase Racing Yearbook app was launched in 2010 with each annual update archiving the previous year’s graded races and providing the current year graded stakes results as they happen throughout the year.
The Equibase Racing Yearbook app was developed by The Jockey Club Technology Services Inc., which also developed Equibase’s Today’s Racing app, another free tool where fans can access entries, results, workouts, carryovers, scratches, and changes that have been optimized for smartphone use.
Equibase Company is a partnership between The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Racing Associations of North America and serves as the Thoroughbred industry’s official database. Through its website, mobile platform and mobile applications, Equibase offers a comprehensive menu of wagering products, statistical information, and video race replays in support of the North American Thoroughbred racing industry.
