CHURCHILL DOWNS BANS DAILY RACING FORUM ON-TRACK SALES

LAUNCHES RIVAL PUBLICATION

Nov. 24, 2017

According to an article in the Paulick Report, Churchill Downs will no longer be selling the Daily Racing Form. Instead, they have developed their own publication called the Churchill Downs Betting Guide, which includes past performances, news and analysis from brisnet.com, a racing data company owned by Churchill Downs Inc., the parent company of the Louisville racetrack founded in 1875. Brisnet.com publishes an array of on-line handicapping products.

This all happened when the management of Churchill Downs and Daily Racing Form apparently began feuding in recent months, culminating in Churchill Downs banning on-track sales of the newspaper founded in 1894. Churchill Downs Inc. (CDI), the parent company of the Louisville racetrack. According to the article, brisnet.com publishes an array of on-line handicapping products.

The basic past performance information contained in Daily Racing Form, Brisnet and on-track programs is purchased from the same source – Equibase, which is owned by a partnership of The Jockey Club and Thoroughbred Racing Associations of North America, of which Churchill Downs tracks are members.

Other tracks banning the Daily Racing Form and replacing it, include CDI-owned Fair Grounds in New Orleans and the company’s off-track betting sites. CDI is also producing a Fair Grounds Betting Guide. The print products include past performances for six or seven tracks being simulcast and cost $5 – half the price of the  Daily Racing Form, which sells for $10 on track and $11 off track.
