National Raceline Launches
The National Raceline,
which has provided instant race calls and race results via the telephone
to the thoroughbred racing community since 1989, have announced a new
venture. The company has launched HandRide.com, which through the power
of the Internet, brings buyers and sellers of thoroughbred racehorses
and breeding stock together with innovative features such as online video
viewing of racehorses for sale, and state-of-the-art search capabilities.
Other features of the website include daily-updated racelines, photos
to examine, an EmailAlert system, and a Buyers In Search Of
section, which details the specific needs and wants of horse owners actively
seeking racehorses and bloodstock. There is a $40 monthly listing fee
($75 with video) and they charge no sales commission. Listing a horse
for sale takes only a few minutes and can be done easily online or through
a toll-free telephone number.
The National Raceline, based in Delray Beach, Florida, has allowed horsemen
to listen to actual race calls from racetracks coast to coast including
Canada for nearly thirteen years. The company has also operated telephone
services for many publications including Daily Racing Form, USA Today,
Sports Eye, NY Daily News, LA Times, and Horse Player Magazine.
The Internet already has played a huge role in allowing horse owners
to follow their horses as well as stay abreast of happenings in the Sport,"
said National Raceline President Eric Cherry. "We think horsemen
everywhere will come to rely on our site to keep them up-to-date on whats
happening in the horse market especially when utilizing my favorite feature,
EmailAlert, where you get notified by email the moment the kind of horse
you're looking for gets listed for sale. You're then just a mouse click
away from viewing that horses most recent racelines as well as watching
