The races will be made available to SIS’s operator partners as part of its international retail channels, as well as its 24/7 Live Horse Racing Channel and 24/7 Live Horse & Greyhound Channel, which provide a betting event every three minutes.

This latest partnership further enhances SIS’s market leading portfolio of international racing, having recently secured similar agreements to broadcast live pictures from Singapore’s premier racecourse in Kranji, as well as the Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo racecourse in Buenos Aires.

Simon Fraser, Head of International Horse Racing at SIS, said: “Securing the exclusive rights to deliver live pictures and data from one of the US’s leading racecourses is a major boost to our international offering. These

additional races further enhance our 24/7 racing service, providing even more quality betting opportunities throughout the day, regardless of time zone, with content that will appeal to bettors, and help drive betting turnover for operators.”
