A company has released an app for the Apple iPad that allows users to check the past race performances of throughbreds, harness racers and quarter horses.
Equibase Company’s Past Performances app can be downloaded free from the App Store on an iPad.
It enables customers to download past performances and then “mark-up” the program as if handicapping with a traditional pen and paper.
“The Equibase iPPs app displays past performance information in a format that can be easily personalized simply by touching the iPad screen,” Equibase president Hank Zeitlin said.
“Whatever marks you make while handicapping using a traditional print program or Daily Racing Form – whether it’s circling, highlighting or making specific notes – you can now make and save right on your iPad.”
Users can select from a variety of past performance program formats for every North American racetrack for as little as $US2. In addition to thoroughbred and quarter horse programs, harness past performances are also available for download, too.
Equibase Company is a partnership between subsidiaries of The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Racing Associations of North America and serves as the Thoroughbred industry’s official database.
