Daily Racing Form Introduces DRF Breeding Today, the Daily Newsletter Featuring DRF’s Exclusive Beyer Speed Figures

New York, NY (August 22, 2013) This Monday, Daily Racing Form will debut DRF Breeding Today, a free digital newsletter that delivers in-depth breeding coverage and DRF’s exclusive Beyer Speed Figure reports.

DRF Breeding Today will provide readers with an advance look at DRF’s top breeding stories five days a week (Monday thru Friday) and, for the first time, include DRF Beyer Speed Figures for recent winners of all ages, all classes and all surfaces.  DRF Breeding Today will arrive in readers’ in-boxes early each afternoon, in an easy-to-read and print-friendly PDF format, providing busy owners, breeders and trainers with new insights, tools and late-breaking daily news.

”We introduced DRF Breeding in late 2012 with a commitment to build out the highest quality coverage, tools and new products to better serve the industry and attract new owners,” said John Hartig, CEO, Daily Racing Form. “DRF Breeding Today is the latest result of a collaboration from leading Breeding professionals to ensure it fills an important business need.”

From the outset, the goal of DRF Breeding has been to bridge the worlds of racing and breeding, and DRF Breeding Today daily newsletter effectively delivers on that promise through its inclusion of DRF Beyer Speed Figures tied to every sire.   Long held as the industry standard, Beyer Speed Figures are essential to both horseplayers and the breeding industry, and have never before been made available in a free product.  The Beyer Speed Figures will give owners and breeders a quick and important reference point to evaluate runners of all ages and on all surfaces and all classes of racing.

”The industry challenged us to develop specialized reports and utilizing Beyer Speed Figures instantly provides breeders, sales agents and every person with a vested interest in Thoroughbred racing with an exclusive tool to assist their breeding and auction decisions,” said editor Mark Simon. “Tying these rankings together with breaking news at the farms and on the track is a very exciting venture for DRF Breeding. We welcome any comments about DRF Breeding Today. Please send them to my attention at msimon@drf.com.”
