Caesars Entertainment has announced the launch of its Caesars Racebook product in New York, delivering parimutuel betting options for race fans in the Empire State. 

Now live across the state, Caesars Racebook allows players to bet from pools on horse racing content from over 300 global tracks from their phones. 

The platform has now entered its 17th state, after launches in states like California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Wyoming.

 “Building on the popularity of our Caesars Sportsbook app, we are thrilled to launch Caesars Racebook in New York during the heart of the Saratoga race meet,” said Dan Shapiro, Senior Vice President, and Chief Development Officer at Caesars Digital. “Caesars has a deep-rooted commitment to horse racing, and we couldn’t have a better partner to bring a premier horse racing mobile wagering experience to racing fans.”

The platform is powered using the NYRA Bets tech platform which allows players to stream and bet on races simultaneously. The partnership has been extended to the Empire State after the two have collaborated in other states. 

“This is an important expansion of the partnership between NYRA Bets and Caesars Racebook that will contribute to the success of horse racing in New York State now and in the future,” said Tony Allevato, President of NYRA Bets.

Enticing new users into the platform, Caesars is offering new users in New York a 100% first deposit match up to $200, while each bet placed on the racebook platform will earn Caesars Reward Tier Credits on the loyalty program, allowing players to earn rewards at Caesars properties nationwide.
