Following the recent launch of the free Equibase Racing YearbookTM application (app) within the iTunes store, Equibase has packaged the same race results and videos and made them available on equibase.com along with expanded North American racing statistics, it was announced today by Equibase Company chairman Alan Marzelli.
The web version of the Racing Yearbook, like the app, offers video replays (provided by Post Time Technologies) and results of all graded stakes races and ungraded prep races for the Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
“In the month since its release, the Racing Yearbook app for the iPhone has become the highest ranking horse racing app in the USA and is consistently ranked in the top 10% of all sports apps,” said Marzelli. “With the launch of the Racing Yearbook on equibase.com we are significantly broadening our reach so that anyone with a computer can follow the stars of our sport from one central location.”
In addition to the Racing Yearbook, equibase.com now includes a Stats Central section that compiles expanded horse, jockey and trainer statistical profiles in one central location. Profiles are searchable and provide current year and career stats as well current entry and result information for those with recent activity.
Complementing the statistical profiles are expanded North American racing leaders lists that now include all horses, jockeys, trainers and owners annually back to the year 2000. The lists can be sorted and feature a “quick find” search tool. Similar enhancements have been made to track-specific statistics as well.
