|The Jockey Club Phasing In American Express for E-Commerce Transactions|
American Express has been added to the payment options for e-commerce transactions on equibase.com and equineline.com as part of a phase in of the billing option among The Jockey Club family of companies.
“American Express provides an added measure of convenience for owners, breeders, handicappers and anyone else who utilizes the varied products and services offered by The Jockey Club and its subsidiaries,” said Jockey Club vice president and controller, Laura Barillaro.
The phase in of American Express will continue later this Summer when Jockey Club InteractiveTM is equipped with the capability to process credit card transactions automatically for registration-related services.
