Caesars Sportsbook is a subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment that is now planning to launch Caesars Racebook. It will officially enter the market of online wagering on horse racing.
Caesars Entertainment is renowned. It operates four racinos. These include Horseshoe Indianapolis in Shelbyville, Harrah’s Hoosier Park in Anderson, Harrah’s Philadelphia in Columbus, Ohio, and Scioto Downs, also in Columbus, Ohio.
As for the future, the empire plans to build a racetrack and casino in Columbus, Ohio. These will be branded under Harrah.
The Entry Of Caesars Sportsbook
Caesars Sportsbook’s partnership with NYRA will enable Caesars Sportsbook to make Caesars Racebook available for download tentatively by Spring. For the purpose of this launch, Caesars Sportsbook will utilize the capabilities of NYRA Bets.
NYRA Bets is the advance-deposit wagering application for NYRA, which is short for New York Racing Association.
Through this partnership, Caesars Racebook will gain access to more than 250 race tracks across the globe. These are in addition to the three thoroughbred tracks that it owns in New York.
The three New York-based thoroughbred tracks are Belmont Park (Long Island), Aqueduct Racetrack (New York City), and Saratoga Race Course.
Users who place bets through Caesars Sportsbook will each earn a reward point for Caesars.
Dan Shapiro, the Digital Vice President & Chief Development Officer at Caesars, issued a statement on this occasion.
He stated that NYRA conducted world-class horse racing and added that NYRA Bets had access to some of the best horse racing content from across the globe. This included Caesars-operated racetracks.
Dave O’Rourke, the President & Chief Executive Officer of NYRA, also issued a statement saying that it was an ideal way to pair NYRA with Caesars, a brand that was renowned globally in the industry. He called NYRA Bets a rapidly growing platform and claimed that it was an ideal way to launch Caesars Racebook.
All the NYRA Bets tools delivered by Caesars Racebook are expected to deliver a lot of advantages to Caesars.
Caesars and NYRA share a brief history as the launch of Caesars Racebook has come at a time when it has been a couple of months since both the partners vowed to make the company an official sports betting partner.
Dave O’Rourke stated that it was the core responsibility of horse racing and that it would only enable them to attract more fans by expanding their access to the market.
In addition to Caesars, NYRA is also a partner of BetMGM. According to a representative for NYRA, the Caesars partnership has no bearing on the company’s agreement with BetMGM.
