SIS extends rights partnership for Singapore racing

SIS, a provider of end-to-end products and services to the betting and broadcast industries, has extended its rights deal with Singapore Pools.

Under the new two-year contract, SIS will continue to broadcast all 800 races and provide data from the Singapore Racecourse in Kranji, which is the home of the Singapore Triple Crown Series. The series culminates with the Singapore Gold Cup in November.

The races will be made available to UK and Irish retail and online customers via the newly-launched SIS 24/7 Live Betting Channels.

The latest partnership follows the supplier’s deal with the Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo racecourse in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It adds to SIS’s international horse racing offer, which includes racing from the UK and Ireland, Dubai, Mauritius and South Korea.
