SIS (Sports Information Services), a leading supplier of 24/7 betting services to retail and online operators globally, has today confirmed an extension to its greyhound service with additional races, to temporarily replace the British horse racing fixtures that were suspended by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) from 17th March following the COVID-19 outbreak.
The rescheduled service has been crafted to offer more racing at peak retail times, and from Monday 23rd March there will be a revised SIS greyhound schedule in operation (Monday-Friday).
There will be an increase of 54 races to 532 per week and a repositioning of fixtures to optimise events in the 12pm-5pm slot from all of SIS’s British and Irish tracks.
Paul Witten, Product Director at SIS, said in a statement that, “Our revised channels schedule means that we can now provide our bookmaker customers with a live greyhound race every six minutes, compared to ten minutes previously. British and Irish greyhound racing remains open for business and our online and retail customers will appreciate the increase in race frequency.
“SIS is putting this additional content into the market at zero profit, as part of our commitment to support our bookmaker customers in these difficult times.”
