Caesars Sportsbook, NYRA Bets to launch racebook app

March 10, 2022

Caesars Racebook will offer livestreaming from tracks around the world.

Caesars Sportsbook, a division of Caesars Entertainment, and NYRABets, the official online wagering platform of the New York Racing Association (NYRA), on Thursday unveiled the launch of a new horse racing account wagering app, Caesars Racebook.

Available for download this spring, Caesars Racebook will utilize the NYRA Bets platform to provide bettors with pari-mutuel wagering services on horse racing content from more than 250 tracks around the world.

The parties said Caesars Racebook will offer wagering on marquee horse racing events in the United States, as well as on international tracks.

The new app will offer players all the benefits of NYRA Bets, including race replays, handicapping insights and more, they added.

NYRA Bets, a national advance deposit wagering platform, is available in 30 states. The NYRA said it continues to expand its reach and customer base throughout the United States.

Horse racing and sports fans across the country soon will be able to download the Caesars Racebook app on iOS or Android. Similar to the Caesars Sportsbook app, every wager placed on Caesars Racebook will earn with Caesars Rewards.

Caesars said it is a longtime supporter of horse racing. It operates racing at Harrah’s Hoosier Park, Horseshoe Indianapolis, Harrah’s Philadelphia and Eldorado Gaming Scioto Downs.

In 2021, Caesars announced plans to build and operate a Harrah’s racetrack and casino in Columbus, Nebraska. The company is the host of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association’s National Handicapping Championship at Horseshoe Las Vegas.

In January, Caesars Sportsbook and NYRA unveiled a partnership establishing Caesars as an official sports betting marketing partner in New York and the title sponsor of the NYRA Turf Triple Series at Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course. The parties said that agreement “significantly expanded” the partnership between NYRA Bets and Caesars Sportsbook

“Following our successful roll out of Caesars Sportsbook, we are delighted to launch Caesars Racebook in partnership with NYRA Bets,” Dan Shapiro, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer of Caesars Digital, said in a statement. “NYRA conducts world-class horse racing and NYRA Bets has access to best horse racing content from around the world, including from Caesars-operated racetracks. We are proud to support the horse racing industry while introducing the new Caesars Racebook app and Caesars Rewards to horse racing bettors.”

Dave O’Rourke, NYRA President and CEO, added: “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.”
