|New Owner Profile Pages Introduced on equibase.com|
Equibase Company LLC has introduced Owner Profile pages in the Stats Central section on equibase.com. These pages consolidate and present in one convenient location the most current racing statistics for individual owners, owners who race in partnerships and stables, syndicates and other racing entities.
“During 2011, a total of 64,670 Thoroughbred starters in the USA and Canada were raced under 32,124 unique ownerships,” said Hank Zeitlin, president and COO of Equibase Company. “Owners make a tremendous commitment to this sport every time they breed or purchase a Thoroughbred to race. These Owner Profile pages provide not only information but well-deserved recognition for the owner.”
Owner names listed throughout equibase.com will now include links that will take the user to that owner’s or partnership’s specific stat profile page. The owner profiles are also searchable from 2010 to present and provide current year statistics as well as entry and result information. The Owner Profile pages are the latest addition to the Stats Central section of equibase.com, which includes expanded horse, jockey, trainer and track statistical profiles in one central location.
The Owner Profile pages will also complement Thoroughbred OwnerView, a free website being developed by The Jockey Club to encourage ownership of Thoroughbreds. Set to launch this month, Thoroughbred OwnerView will include detailed information on trainers, public racing syndicates, racehorse retirement and owner licensing.
Equibase Company is a partnership between The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Racing Associations of North America and serves as the Thoroughbred industry’s official database. Through its website, mobile platform and mobile applications, Equibase offers a comprehensive menu of wagering products, statistical information and video race replays in support of the North American Thoroughbred racing industry.
