Racing and Wagering Board releases two databases

The New York State Racing and Wagering Board released two comprehensive and searchable databases to the public: a detailed list of every horse that has broken down, died, sustained a serious injury or been involved in an incident at a track in New York State since 2009; and a list of every fine and suspension issued by the Board to licensees for nearly three decades.

Both databases - The Equine Breakdown, Death, Injury and Incident Database and the The Racing and Wagering Board Rulings Database - will be updated promptly as data submitted by field staff at each track is logged in by Racing and Wagering Board investigative staff.
The Board will include more statistical information on equine breakdowns in the near future, including variables about the race in which an incident occurred, the horse’s racing history and more detailed descriptions about each incident.

Both databases are also available through the New York State Racing and Wagering Board’s Web site. The two databases bring an unparalleled transparency to New York’s horseracing industry and regulation.

The equine compilation – an unprecedented industry database – consists of reporting data from Racing and Wagering Board employees at every Thoroughbred and Standardbred track in New York. Interested parties may search the database through a variety of parameters, including by: horse, trainer, jockey/driver’s name; year or a specific date; individual track; and breed. Significantly, the database includes racing, training and non-racing fatalities and incidents.
