Equibase Company, the Thoroughbred industry's Official database for racing information, today announced the launch of Virtual StableTM race day notifications that feature convenient links to wager through sponsoring advance deposit wagering (ADW) providers Brisbet.com, TVG, Winticket.com and Youbet.com.
Virtual Stable is Equibase's e-mail notification service used by more than 100,000 fans to track entries, results and workouts for horses they wish to follow. The service is available at no charge through http://www.equibase.com.
"Virtual Stable has made the sport of racing easier for fans to follow and now wager on with the implementation of race day notices sponsored by four of the industry's leading ADW providers," said Equibase's sales manager, Victor Espinosa. "The convenience of race day reminder notices that link directly to licensed and regulated wagering platforms adds further value for Virtual Stable subscribers and, ultimately, will help deliver additional revenue for the sport."
Virtual Stable race day notices are generally delivered within a few hours of post time. Along the top of the notification are individual links to wager through the sponsoring ADW providers. In order to place a wager, the Virtual Stable subscriber must be a customer of at least one of the sponsors and reside in a state where such activity is not prohibited.
