The flat race meetings from Italy include Group and Listed racing, with action taking place three times per week. SIS noted that the 1,435 races available annually will be a key addition to its output, further serving to increase betting opportunities for operators.
“The addition of high-class Italian content further emphasises our focus to bring operators and their customers the widest range of betting opportunities from around the world 24/7, 365 days a year,” said SIS Head of International Horseracing Conall McSorley.
“Italian racing is on an upward trajectory, and with quality racing on the track, we are sure that both operators and bettors will respond positively to this addition to our content offering.”
