Long time, no blog. But I have some exciting news.
We’ve just soft launched our new horse racing portal at HorseRacing.com.au. Our business acquired the domain name late 2010 and we started plans for the site immediately. There’s only a few pages live at the moment covering some of the biggest group races in Australia and also some of the major Australian racecourses. But, this site is going to be massive so keep an eye on it. In the near future we will have full horse, jockey and trainer profiles, odds comparison, tips and much, much more all on one giant horse racing industry portal.
The site itself is a reasonably simple design, we want to keep it quite light so that come Melbourne Cup time we can handle the enormous amount of traffic we will handle (my best guess at this point will be close to, if not more than 1 million unique visitors across our network this year on Melbourne Cup 2011 day alone). Anyway, if you have any questions about the new site, let me know. Don’t forget to leave some feedback in the comments.
