Equibase Providing Voided Claims Information

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Mar. 30, 2015) -- Equibase Company announced today that, effective immediately, it will include in its data feeds, result charts and Equibase past performance products information on claims that were subsequently voided. The voided claim information is also being made available to tracks for inclusion in race programs nationwide.

“As specific voided claim rules have become more prevalent at racetracks in North America, it made sense to broaden the dissemination of the information as a service to the betting public,” said Hank Zeitlin, president and chief operating officer of Equibase.

Claimed horses, which are denoted with a ‘c’ at the end of the race information within Equibase past performances, now include a ‘v’ to indicate when the claim was subsequently voided. The result charts on equibase.com are denoted with “claim voided” text and also include the recorded reason for the voided claim.

Equibase also announced that effective immediately result charts available on equibase.com now include the full race conditions for all races.
