The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) today announced a complete redesign of its website,
. The new NYRA.com presents a wealth of information via a clean, organized layout with a variety of user-friendly features.
“We are thrilled to debut a wholly redesigned and mobile-enabled NYRA.com,” said NYRA President and Chief Operating Officer Ellen McClain. “The new site combines design, technology and deep racing knowledge to deliver an intuitive display of relevant information, including an extensive video library, for fans, handicappers and horsemen alike.”
NYRA.com’s new layout prominently displays key links near the top of the page. Fans, handicappers and horsemen can easily locate frequently accessed information including entries, results, replays, Talking Horses picks, scratches, track conditions, and more. The site was designed to be accessible for all visitors, regardless of their previous experience with racing. The “Wagering 101” tutorial will help newcomers learn the sport and how to wager, while experienced horseplayers will find the extensive information they’ve come to expect from NYRA.
Increased photo and video content makes the site visually striking. A “Video Corner” displays NYRA TV programs and features, and photo galleries have been added to the site for the first time. Race replays dating back to 2007 at all three NYRA tracks are available for instant viewing, with the current day’s replays highlighted at the top of the page. NYRA’s social media feeds – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube – are integrated at the bottom of the page, allowing fans to see real-time updates across all channels.
The new site also features an information-rich leaderboard, with biographical information for owners, trainers, and jockeys. Dynamic integration with Equibase Company LLC ensures that these statistics, along with entries, results, charts, and workouts, are updated regularly throughout each racing day.
Additionally, the new NYRA.com is mobile-enabled. Visitors who access the site using a mobile device are presented with a straightforward interface optimized for on-the-go use.
The website was created by NYRA and Americaneagle.com, Inc., a leading Web design, development, and hosting company based in Des Plaines, Ill.
