RESULTS TICKER AMONG EQUIBASE.COM ENHANCEMENTS
Continuing efforts to serve racing's interactive market with the most up-to-date information, Equibase Company LLC today announced a series of enhancements to equibase.com, including a streaming race results ticker which provides summary race results online for all North American Thoroughbred races within minutes of the race being declared official.
"This latest development is further evidence of our commitment to make the most relevant information available to the widest possible audience in the most timely manner," said Equibase Company chairman Alan Marzelli. "The power of the Internet and our recently redesigned field collection system allow us to do just that.
"We are very excited about the latest enhancements to equibase.com, particularly the streaming results ticker," he continued. "Providing timely access to results through the convenience of the Internet positions racing on a par with other sports-oriented web sites which offer similar real-time updates."
The streaming results ticker conveniently launches in its own window and remains open on the desktop for as long as the user chooses. The ticker is a direct outgrowth of the Company's new eBase Field Collection System, which allows Equibase Track and Field Staff to work directly in the central database over the Internet, greatly reducing the time involved in processing and disseminating individual race data.
Equibase Company LLC, to be found on the World Wide Web at www.equibase.com, is a partnership of The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Racing Associations of North America, and serves as the Thoroughbred industry's official database of racing information.
