The Racing Partnership (“TRP”) and the Federation of Racecourse Bookmakers (“FRB”) have agreed a deal to the end of 2019. The agreement means that on course bookmakers represented by the FRB will make their prices available for the exclusive use of TRP.
This deal follows on from one signed earlier in the year with the British Racecourse Bookmakers Association (“BRBA“) which means TRP will have access to prices from all on course bookmakers across its 22 member racecourses. This agreement will start on 1 January from Lingfield Park, Doncaster, Southwell, Wolverhampton, Royal Windsor and Worcester racecourses and will go on to include the other nine ARC and seven independent courses that are part of TRP.
Director of the Federation of Racecourse Bookmakers, Robin Grossmith, said “I am delighted the FRB and TRP have been able to agree this deal, that has enabled us to provide TRP with the data generated by the leading on course bookmakers who operate across the TRP estate. We look forward to working with TRP going forward.”
Director of The Racing Partnership, Mark Kingston, said: “TRP has always wanted to contract with all on course bookmakers that stand on its racecourses. The agreement with the FRB, together with the deal with the BRBA announced earlier in the year, means exactly that. As a result, TRP will be the only source of official race day data to the off course market“.
