NEW YORK, Jan. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sports Information Group, LLC ("SIG"), a national multi-media information company dedicated to providing premium data driven content to the sports industry through its flagship Daily Racing Form ("DRF") platform and other brands, today announced that the Oregon Racing Commission has approved DRF for a five-year multi-jurisdictional Advance-Deposit Wagering (ADW) Hub License.
Daily Racing Form has been the dominant daily publication in the horse racing industry since 1894 and is considered the go-to resource for the thoroughbred racing industry. Daily Racing Form publishes up to 2,000 unique pages of statistical and editorial copy every day, in as many as 20 daily editions, 364 days a year. Its companion website, www.DRF.com, is the most heavily-trafficked horse racing destination, providing extensive news coverage, race results, exclusive handicapping tools, as well as sales and auction coverage through DRF Breeding, and access to DRF Bets™, one of America's fastest-growing online and mobile advanced deposit wagering platforms. Daily Racing Form was acquired by Z Capital in July 2017.
"We are delighted that the Oregon Racing Commission has granted DRF an ADW Hub License," said James Zenni, Chairman of SIG and President and CEO of Z Capital. "DRF is an iconic brand and with this license as well as Z Capital's support, DRF is strongly positioned to continue elevating the horse racing industry for a variety of audiences, providing a best-in-class experience for dedicated handicappers and casual players as well as a new generation of horse racing fans. This license further positions DRF for success in the digital age of horse racing - the future of wagering in America."
"We appreciate the care and attention DRF has received from the Oregon Racing Commission and its staff in approving DRF for this license," said Martin Auerbach, Z Capital's General Counsel. "This represents an important step in solidifying DRF as an industry-leading contributor to the future of horse racing and will allow DRF to work with regulators, trainers, track owners and others, to offer race fans the best possible handicapping and wagering experience."
The Oregon Racing Commission was established in 1933 as part of the Pari-Mutuel Wagering Act. The agency regulates all aspects of the pari-mutuel industry in Oregon. The commission currently regulates all horse racing where pari-mutuel wagering is conducted. Regulation occurs both on track and at off-track wagering facilities and covers all aspects of the operation.
