Launch provides sports bettors with exciting new content and raises horse racing awareness

SIS Content Services, part of Sports Information Services (SIS) Group, the leading content supplier of 24/7 live betting services, has agreed a landmark deal with long-time operator partner Bet365 to deliver its global horse racing content to bettors in Colorado, bringing fixed-odds horse racing wagering to a licensed sports betting platform for the first time in the United States.

The approval of horse racing fixed-odds wagering on Colorado sportsbooks will aid the sport attracting a wider range of casual bettors, who will be offered the same type of betting as all other sports. It represents positive news for a range of Colorado stakeholders including Bally’s Arapahoe Park and the Colorado Horsemen’s Association as a portion of turnover is directed to Colorado horse racing.

Boasting round-the-clock betting opportunities, SIS Group provides a comprehensive horse racing portfolio of nearly 140 international and domestic racetracks. The upcoming highlights include the Saudi Cup Day on February 24 where top American horses will compete for US$33.5 million in purses and then travel to the Dubai World Cup meeting on March 24 to vie for US$30.5 million in purses. Along with coverage of the world’s richest horse races, year-round racing is available from 14 countries including Ireland, Australia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and the United States.

SIS Group delivers sportsbooks an end-to-end horse racing solution including live-streamed video with betting triggers, race day data and an extensive range of markets and odds prices to provide seamless betting experiences.

“The launch of fixed-odds horse racing betting on Colorado sportsbooks puts horse racing on equal footing with other sports and hopefully attracts a new fan base and revenue for our racetrack partners,” the Vice-President for SIS Content Services, Michele Fischer, said. “This is a great first step in expanding the horse racing audience and I commend the Colorado horse racing stakeholders, Colorado Division of Gaming and Bet365 for their vision and support. Horse racing provides sportsbooks with exciting year-round 24/7 content throughout the world. It will take time in the United States but I expect that more sports wagering operators and states will include horse racing on their sports catalogs.”

“We are thrilled to be able to put horse racing on Colorado sportsbooks for fixed-odds wagering,” the Operations and Racing Executive Director for Bally’s Arapahoe Park, Shannon Ruston, said. “Working with SIS Group, we crafted a commercial framework that benefits local racing while giving sportsbooks access to thousands of races. Our belief is that this development will secure a better future not only for Bally’s Arapahoe Park but also for the racing ecosystem as a whole in Colorado.”

“We are committed to ensuring that horse racing in Colorado is economically viable for the participating owners and trainers, who are the backbone of the sport,” the President of the Colorado Horsemen’s Association, Kim Oliver, said. “Fixed-odds betting will produce a new revenue stream and exposure for horse racing. This launch represents a pivotal moment for our group.”

“The introduction of fixed-odds horse racing betting is sure to have a positive impact in Colorado,” read a statement from Bet365. “We have seen the popularity of fixed-odds betting in horse racing in other markets and, as sports betting becomes more ingrained across the United States, it will certainly provide a boost to engagement.”
