|Youbet.com, Inc. the online wagering company and one of the largest providers of horse racing content in the U.S today announced record handle for the Breeders' Cup on October 25. |
The Oregon-based company said its handle from the 20th Breeders' Cup, run at Santa Anita racetrack in California, rose 56 percent from the prior year's handle, and was 46 percent greater than Youbet's handle from the Kentucky Derby earlier this year.
'The evidence continues to grow that our superior content and flawless execution are a powerful combination for bettors. This year's Breeders' Cup was also the first major test of our new platform, which handled the day's record transactions with ease. In addition, our funding and member service operations performed beautifully, so we are confident that, for some time to come, our overall system can accommodate substantial increases in volume without further capital investment,' says Chuck Champion, Chairman and CEO of Youbet.
Members of Youbet.com have the ability to watch and, in most US states, have the ability to wager on virtually 100 percent of all major domestic horse racing content via Youbet.com's network.
