PointsBet, a leading sports betting company, has finally announced the launch of its horse racing division, PointsBet Racing. The release comes just in time for the Triple Crown, allowing customers in multiple states to wager on the event.
Described as an all-in-one product that will modernize the horse racing experience, PointsBet Racing is powered by technology from The Stronach Group’s 1/ST TECHNOLOGY division, a true expert when it comes to thoroughbred events.
As one of the operators with the most extensive US reach, PointsBet is optimistic about the launch. It noted that the new app will include content from the world’s best horse racing tracks, including from each leg of the Triple Crown. In total, the new product will cover 180+ tracks from the US, UK, Ireland, Hong Kong, Japan and Australia.
In addition to that, PointsBet Racing comes equipped with live streaming and replay functions and single-user account sign-on, robust statistical information, fast deposits and withdrawals and a variety of educational tools. The product sports deep link integration across the company’s other digital products and is intuitive to use by PointsBet veterans and newcomers alike.

Johnny Aitken, the chief executive officer of PointsBet USA, commented on the launch, saying that it signifies a major milestone for the company. He noted that PointsBet is ambitious to grow its product portfolio and capitalize on the potential of US horse racing.
He said that his team is keen on replicating the success of horse racing in other mature markets in the US.
We are optimistic about replicating the success we have seen in mature global betting markets where racing is a huge engagement channel next to sports. This new offering will contribute to the growth of online horse racing in the US and we are excited to get live in advance of one of the most important racing events of the year.
