Equibase Company has announced that effective immediately it will include in its data feeds, result charts, and Equibase past performance products information on claims that were subsequently voided. The voided claim information is also being made available to tracks for inclusion in race programs nationwide.
"As specific voided claim rules have become more prevalent at racetracks in North America, it made sense to broaden the dissemination of the information as a service to the betting public," said Hank Zeitlin, president and chief operating officer of Equibase.
Claimed horses, which are denoted with a 'c' at the end of the race information within Equibase past performances, now include a 'v' to indicate when the claim was subsequently voided. The result charts on equibase.com are denoted with "claim voided" text and also include the recorded reason for the voided claim.
Equibase also announced that effective immediately result charts available on equibase.com now include the full race conditions for all races.
Now in its 25th year of operation, 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. Through its website, mobile platform and mobile applications, Equibase offers a comprehensive array of free statistical information as well as premium handicapping products and reports in support of the North American Thoroughbred racing industry.
