The Caesars Racebook is launched with the NYRA and will bring horse racing betting to 30 states

US horse racing betting fans are about to get a whole lot closer to the action after Caesars (NASDAQ:CZR) announced their new partnership with the New York Racing Association, which will introduce players across the country to the eagerly-anticipated Caesars Racebook app and betting site.

Caesars is one of America’s biggest gambling brands and its move into horse racing takes a big leap this spring with its partnership with the NYRA.

Caesars Racebook will be the Las Vegas firm’s marquee horse racing betting app, available across 30 states and using NYRA’s platform to offer odds on races from over 250 racetracks worldwide.

The initiative is likely to significantly boost interest in horse racing betting – not only on American races like the Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup, but also global events such as the Grand National and Melbourne Cup.

“Following our successful roll out of Caesars Sportsbook, we’re delighted to launch Caesars Racebook in partnership with NYRA Bets,” said Caesars Digital’s senior vice president and CDO Dan Shapiro.

“NYRA conducts world-class horse racing and NYRA Bets has access to the best horse racing content from around the world, including from Caesars-operated racetracks. We’re proud to support the horse racing industry while introducing the new Caesars Racebook app and Caesars Rewards to horse racing bettors.”

Caesars Racebook

Caesars Racebook will be Caesars’ flagship horse racing betting brand

Caesars currently operates racing at Harrah’s Hoosier Park, Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs, Horseshoe Indianapolis and Harrah’s Philadelphia. Its Caesars Racebook app will launch the firm into a new venture with NYRA, whereby odds and data is provided to the brand through the NYRA Bets network.

And this means players will be able to wager on pari-mutuel services and access a range of horse racing content live and direct from their mobile devices.

How Caesars Racebook Will Work

Caesars Racebook will be a horse racing app and website that players can join in order to place horse racing bets from more than 250 racetracks worldwide.

The site and app are expected to boast Caesars branding with a look similar to that found in the Caesars Sportsbook. However, the engine underneath the glitzy facade will be run by NYRA Bets – a platform that offers replays, handicapping insights and more, on top of markets on every available race.

By tapping into NYRA Bets, Caesars will gain access to 30 states where horse racing betting is legal.

Players will be able to:

  • Download Caesars Racebook on iOS or Android
  • Access races from 250 racetracks worldwide
  • Place pari-mutuel wagers on the world’s biggest races
  • Access tips and reports available via NYRA Bets
  • Wager on phones or desktop anywhere in their state (so long as horse racing is legal)

In a statement, NYRA president and CEO Dave O’Rourke said: “NYRA considers it a core responsibility to grow the sport by increasing consumer access to world-class horse racing both in New York and around the country.

“Pairing the world-renowned Caesars brand with the rapidly growing NYRA Bets wagering platform is an ideal way to launch Caesars Racebook, which will soon deliver all the NYRA Bets tools and advantages to the Caesars customer base.”

Is Caesars Racing App Available To Download?

Not yet. The plan is to launch Caesars Racebook at some point in spring 2022 and likely have it ready for the Kentucky Derby on Astray, May 7th.

Players who already boasts Caesars account are likely to be able to link their profile in the Caesars Racebook, so they can earn Caesars Rewards points alongside their other wagering activity.
