After already pleasing the Jockey Club by boosting their coffers with a six-figure sum early last month, Stan James thought America might be feeling a little left out over there. Never fear los Americanos! Stan James has today increased their investment in the US horse racing market by acquiring a majority stake in Racing2day.
The deal sees Stan taking a stake in the company who are licensed by the Oregon Racing Commission and are an online horse racing wagering business run by horse racing owners, players, handicappers and fans.
CEO of the Gibraltar based global gaming operator, Denis Kelly, commented: “The team at Racing2day is passionate about horse racing and their high quality product gives us an ideal opportunity to develop and enhance our international racing offering by giving our customers access to a new and exciting range of pari-mutuel products which are fun and easy to use. StanJames.com invests significantly into UK horse racing, and we are committed to continue our global investment in this exciting sport. We aim to boost the size of the pools by ultimately driving our European customers to the US Tote.”
Racing2day were equally excited at the partnership, president Vincent Caldwell saying: “StanJames.com’s involvement will drive the development of Racing2day in offering a truly unique and independent wagering service to American and international horse racing players.”
