Sports betting and igaming operator BetMGM has launched its BetMGM Horse Racing mobile app in the state of Ohio, setting the stage for the app’s entry into additional markets across the US.
Available to download on both iOS and Android, the BetMGM Horse Racing app will allow Buckeye State customers to watch and wager on premier Thoroughbred, Harness and Quarter Horse races at more than 200 tracks around the world.
The app utilizes NYRA Bets, the official online wagering platform of the New York Racing Association Inc (NYRA) and a provider of horse racing content in the US, to allow its customers in Ohio to place bets from their own homes.
CEO Adam Greenblatt commented: “We’re proud to introduce BetMGM Horse Racing, our new mobile offering to the state of Ohio. In partnership with NYRA Bets, we’ve created an innovative digital experience for horse racing fans and anticipate the platform’s future launch in additional states.”
The app features daily horse racing content, live streaming video, race replays and wagering opportunities on marquee events in the US including the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, Belmont Stakes and the Breeders’ Cup, as well as international events such as the Royal Ascot meet, Melbourne Cup, Saudi Cup and the Dubai World Cup.
Matt Buckley, SVP of Marketing and Operations, MGM Northfield Park, added: “The Northfield Park harness racing grounds have been home to some of the nation’s premier races since the 1950s. Working with BetMGM to elevate harness racing throughout Ohio is a sign of our continued commitment and investment in the sport.”
