From casual bettors to experienced handicappers, Keeneland offers a great deal of wagering information to Players on its website,

  • Polycapping Database-The PolyCapping database contains 35 columns of information about winning horses at Keeneland (going back to Oct. 2006, when Polytrack was installed). The data includes winning horse, surface, race type, maintenance info, Sire, half-mile time, final time, winning trainer, jockey and more. The database is sortable and downloadable, giving fans the opportunity to analyze trends. It is updated each night by 7 p.m.
  • Track Trends and Analysis-Written by nationally recognized handicapper Jeremy Plonk, this information includes traditional picks and analysis, but emphasizes analyzing how the track itself is playing on a day-by-day basis.
  • Trakus-Keeneland is one of the few tracks in the country to offer Trakus technology to its customers. The Trakus technology is a wonderful resource for handicappers, as its T-Charts give detailed information about the distance each horse travels in a race, its peak speed, its final time and more.
  • Expert Picks-Three expert handicappers-longtime track oddsmaker Mike Battaglia, along with former DRF handicappers Bill Howard and Kim Nelson, provide selections for each race day.

Each email, when sent via our email blast system, has a unique web url. We could create a specific web page within the Keeneland site and update it each night with the next day's weblink. Each ADW could post the static URL and their customers could access the updated information each day without any additional work for your webmasters.
