HENDERSON, Ky., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Exacta Systems announced today that it has reached an agreement with Ellis Park to provide the Henderson, Kentucky racetrack with its Historic Horse Racing system and games. Ellis Park will close on January 3, 2017 and will reopen on January 6, 2017 with 179 new Exacta HHR terminals. Ellis Park will become the third racetrack operator to switch their Historic Horse Racing system from AmTote/RaceTech to Exacta Systems in the last 20 months.
"We are excited to offer our customers what, in our opinion, is the best historic horse racing product on the market," commented Ellis Park President Ron Geary. "Exacta's library of over fifty entertaining game titles and several pari-mutuel pools, many of which offer significant jackpots, will improve the player experience at Ellis Park. Based on their performance at Kentucky Downs and in Wyoming, we are confident that switching to Exacta will allow us to grow and maximize our historic horse racing business, which will in turn allow us to increase purses for our live race meet." "We are thrilled that Ellis Park will become the latest racetrack to offer the Exacta HHR system to its customers," commented Exacta Systems President Jeremy Stein. "As we continue to set monthly handle records at Kentucky Downs, add new racetrack customers, and maintain approximately 80% of the competitive HHR market in Wyoming, we are demonstrating that the Exacta system is the clear leader in Historic Horse Racing. We are proud to be on the forefront of HHR as it continues to provide much needed new revenue to purses, breeders incentive funds, racetrack operators, and state general funds."
