SIS adds Spanish horse racing to rights portfolio in three-year deal

SIS, a provider of end-to-end products and services to the betting and broadcast industries, has signed a three-year deal with Asociación de Hipodromos Españoles to become the exclusive distributor of live pictures and data of Spanish horse racing.

As part of the deal, SIS will broadcast at least 480 races across the year from six of Spain’s biggest racecourses – Hipódromo de la Zarzuela, Dos Hermanas, San Sebastian, Sanlucar, Pineda and Son Pardo y Manacor.

The exclusive rights package includes some of Spain’s leading races, including Centenario del Gran Premio de Madrid on June 29 and Gran Premio Memorial Duque de Toledo on October 20.

The races will be made available to SIS operator partners as part of its international retail channels, as well as its live horse racing channel and live horse and greyhound channel.

The latest partnership further enhances SIS’s portfolio of international racing, with the company having recently secured similar agreements to broadcast live pictures from Singapore’s premier racecourse in Kranji, as well as the Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo racecourse in Buenos Aires.
