“The record traffic highlights Equibase’s ability to deliver accurate and up-to-the-minute racing and handicapping content to a worldwide audience of racing fans,” said Equibase President and COO, Hank Zeitlin. “It also illustrates equibase.com’s role as a central information resource in support of both racing’s high-profile days as well as all the other days throughout the year.”
equibase.com provides a comprehensive array of racing information, including programs, entries and result charts, as well as a full line of products for handicappers of every skill level. The site is also home to Virtual Stable®, which provides e-mail notification of entry, result and workout information for horses that fans want to follow. Virtual Stable also offers seasonal “race series” notifications, a once-daily report of activity for contenders for the Triple Crown races and the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
