Supplier strikes two-year contract extension to retain live pictures and data distribution rights of Singapore Racecourse
SIS (Sports Information Services) has extended its agreement with the Singapore Pools Limited, as the distributor of live pictures and data from the Singapore Racecourse in Kranji, Singapore.
As part of a new two-year deal, SIS will continue to broadcast all 800 races from one of Asia’s most highly regarded racecourse, home to the Singapore Triple Crown Series which culminates with the Dester Singapore Gold Cup in November.
The races will be made available to UK and Irish retail and online customers via the newly-launched SIS 24/7 Live Betting Channels, an end-to-end solution which offers 24/7 betting events to retail and online operators, with a betting event every 3 minutes.
This latest partnership follows the supplier’s deal with Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo racecourse in Buenos Aires, further complementing its international horse racing offer, which also includes racing from the UK and Ireland, Dubai, Mauritius and Korea.
Simon Fraser, Head of International Racing at SIS, said: “Kranji is one of Asia’s finest horse racing venues and the extension of our deal as the distributor of live pictures and data is fantastic news.”
Simon Leong, Senior Director (Wagering) at Singapore Pools, added: “We are delighted to have extended our long standing partnership with SIS. Kranji is without a doubt home to the hottest races in the Equator. We race Friday and Sunday throughout the year except during the Christmas period. We are confident the 2019 racing season will offer more excitement, thrills and winning moments to our UK racing fans.
“Our events are gaining in popularity with spectators all around the world, and with SIS making these races easily accessible through its 24/7 Live Betting Channels service, we’re sure even more customers will enjoy the finest racing Singapore has to offer.”
