The additional races will be made available via the full suite of SIS’s services, with the latest partnership complementing the supplier’s comprehensive portfolio, which includes horse racing from the UK and Ireland, Dubai, Singapore, Mauritius and Korea.
Simon Fraser, Head of International Racing at SIS, added: “Securing the exclusive rights of live racing from the Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo racecourse is an important step in our ambitions to offer premium, round-the-clock action to operators and their customers across the globe.
“As a provider of 24/7 betting content, it’s imperative we have access to quality racing that will appeal to audiences wherever they are in the world, and this latest partnership achieves our goal in doing exactly that.”
This move comes a short time after the racing content and data provider expanded its broadcast capabilities, after the launch of its 24/7 live betting channels.
