|The Jockey Club Launches Registry Mobile Site|
Thoroughbred owners and breeders who use The Jockey Club’s Interactive RegistrationTM (IR) service can now access two of the most popular features — the Online Names Book and the list of recently released names — on their smart phones following the launch of mobile.registry.jockeyclub.com.
“These two naming services represent the initial step in the development of Registry mobile, and we look forward to introducing additional features and services in support of the growing mobile web access market,” said Matt Iuliano, The Jockey Club’s executive vice president and executive director.
The Online Names Book is a searchable list of approximately 450,000 Thoroughbred names in active use. The list of recently released names comprises approximately 40,000 names released from active use on January 1 each year. Both resources are updated as names are claimed so that customers are always looking at the most current information.
The Jockey Club, founded in 1894 and dedicated to the improvement of Thoroughbred breeding and racing, is the breed registry for North American Thoroughbreds. In fulfillment of its mission, The Jockey Club provides support and leadership on a wide range of important industry initiatives and it serves the information and technology needs of owners, breeders, media, fans and farms, among others.
