(PRESS RELEASE) -- SIS has agreed an exclusive three-year deal with the Mauritius Turf Club to distribute racing pictures, data, and fixed-odds prices to U.K. retail betting shops and online operators for the first time.
The agreement will see the SIS service broadcast eight races a day for 37 weekend fixtures, with an average of nine runner races for each of the Saturday and Sunday morning races. The content also includes a comprehensive fixed-odds provision through SIS Trading Services.
The new Mauritius rights deal complements SIS' leading content portfolio, which already includes exclusive racing from the U.K., the best racing from Ireland and France as well as key international tracks further afield such as Meydan Grandstand and Racecourse
and Jebel Ali Racecourse
Launched in January, SIS Trading Services is a bespoke trading department for U.K. and international customers that provides comprehensive pricing on U.K., Irish, and International racing as well as BAGS greyhound racing from the company's state of the art London offices.
The comprehensive Mauritius pricing provided by SIS Trading Services includes a suite of data triggers that allows easy automation of trader alerts, in addition to ante-post and starting prices through to in-play updates.
Paul Witten, Commercial Director at SIS, said: "We're delighted to have secured top quality racing from Mauritius for the next three years, which is the ideal product for operators looking to give their customers additional content during busy periods."
Adam Conway, Head of SIS Trading Services, added: "Our team of experienced traders are able to utilise their proprietary algorithms to deliver a full range of markets on races from Mauritius. The ease of integration of the product is cost effective and will ensure our robust and trusted data is delivered at speed."
Racing from the prestigious Mauritius Turf Club dates back over 200 years. The end of season fixture in December, the International Jockey's Week End, attracts some of the best jockeys in the world.
