Caesars Racebook launches in Florida and Ohio

Caesars Racebook is a collaboration between the a collaboration between Caesars Sportsbook and the online betting arm of the New York Racing Association (NYRA Bets), using the NYRA Bets platform to offer pari-mutuel wagering on over 250 race tracks globally.

This includes racing from Belmont Park, Saratoga Race Course and a number of Caesars operated racecourses, such as Harrah’s Hoosier Park and Horseshoe Indianapolis.

The app also uses the Caesars Rewards loyalty program to offer bettors the chance to win exclusive experiences every time they place a wager.

Caesars and NYRA first entered into a partnership in January.

“The launch of Caesars Racebook is an important milestone as we continue to add wagering opportunities for our customers and livestreaming content for the first time,” said Dan Shapiro, senior vice president and chief development officer of Caesars Digital.

“Caesars Racebook is truly differentiated as the first horse racing advance deposit wagering app to include our award-winning Caesars Rewards loyalty program.”

“We look forward to welcoming new horse racing customers and existing fans onto the platform and to working with NYRA Bets to grow horse racing as we deploy Caesars Racebook with plans to launch in about 30 states across the country.”

There are plans to expand the app, which is available for download on iOS, to more states throughout the year.

“The new Caesars Racebook app, which utilizes the NYRA Bets interface and technology, will expand access to world-class horse racing now and in the future,” said Matt Feig, general manager of NYRA Bets. “The partnership between NYRA Bets and Caesars is a win for horse racing, its stakeholders and countless racetracks around the world.”
