New York has a new online racebook for its horse betting needs.

Last week, Caesars Entertainment launched its online NY horse betting platform Caesars Racebook, giving the Empire State “pari-mutuel wagering on premier horse racing content from more than 300 tracks around the world,” according to a press release.

In the heart of the Saratoga race season, Caesars Racebook goes live in New York, becoming the 17th state in Caesars horse betting portfolio.

NY horse betting app ‘an important expansion’ for Caesars, NYRA Bets

This is more than a year in the making for Caesars, which partnered with the New York Racing Association in March 2022 to develop this online horse betting app.

Available for iOS and Android users as well as on desktop, the app, per the release, “provides bettors with a secure, state-of-the-art platform that allows customers to conveniently watch and wager on the world’s best horse racing.”

“Caesars has a deep-rooted commitment to horse racing,” Dan Shapiro, senior vice president and chief development officer at Caesars Digital, said in in a press release, “and we couldn’t have a better partner to bring a premier horse racing mobile wagering experience to racing fans.”

Added Tony Allevato, president of NYRA Bets:

“This is an important expansion of the partnership between NYRA Bets and Caesars Racebook that will contribute to the success of horse racing in New York State now and in the future.”

Racebook wouldn’t be Caesars without Rewards

Naturally, Caesars Entertainment found a way to tie its Caesars Rewards loyalty program with the new horse betting app, which offer new users a 100% first deposit match up to $200.

Each bet placed with Caesars Racebook will earn Tier Credits that increase your “status” and Reward Credits that can be redeemed for “Caesars Rewards experiences” at any one of the company’s 50-plus destinations in US and Canada.

On top of that, users can convert Reward Credits into Wyndham Rewards points, redeemable for vacation stays at over 50,000 hotels, resorts and rentals around the world.
