Equibase Company LLC has introduced personalized racing highlights for all individual profile pages and the ability to sort leaders' lists by a variety of new categories in the Stats Central section on equibase.com.
"The new racing highlights section at the top of every individual profile page provides a 'tale of the tape' like list featuring the best racing achievements for horses and people," said Chris Dawahare, manager of eBusiness Operations and Development for Equibase Company. "And the new sorting feature gives fans easy access to statistics on leading horses, jockeys, trainers or owners - not just by overall earnings and wins - but in a wide variety of categories."
The racing highlights section within all individual profile pages for horses, jockeys, trainers and owners includes a listing of their respective best racing class achieved as well as a listing of performance in Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup Championships races. The section also highlights where the horse or person ranked if within the top 100 for earnings and wins with a link to that specific year.
The expanded North American racing leaders' lists include all horses, jockeys, trainers and owners annually back to the year 2000 and are now sortable by categories such as sex, age, track surface and stakes (including graded) races. In addition to the aforementioned categories, the jockeys' and trainers' lists can also be sorted by first time starters. Owners' lists can be sorted by stakes winners and graded stakes winners.
