Brisnet.com to publish American Produce Records online


Bloodstock Research Information Services (Brisnet.com) announced on Wednesday that it has made its American Produce Records archive available online, and will offer free trial access to Brisnet.com members until January 31.

Brisnet began publishing American Produce Records in 1971 and was a leader in providing detailed pedigree data to breeders, handicappers, and other interested parties in subsequent decades. The new APR Online venture offers subscribers unlimited access to more than a century of data, including more than 3 million foals and nearly 1 million dams. Information is updated daily and is accessible on tablet, mobile, desktop, and laptop devices. Annual subscriptions are $275.

“We designed APR Online to give horse racing professionals and pedigree handicappers access to real-time information when and how they want it,” Brisnet.com director of marketing Ed DeRosa said. “Whether you’re planning a mating or playing the races, this will be an invaluable tool for all types of racing and breeding enthusiasts.”

The APR Online trial through January 31 requires a free Brisnet.com membership. Information provided includes: lifetime race records; public auction prices on all foals sold since 1986; lifetime best BRIS Speed Rating data; enhanced pedigree information on 2- and 3-year-olds; and European produce records.

“For more than 40 years, this product has been a valuable resource that has been the foundation for computerizing pedigree information in our industry,” Brisnet.com Vice President Happy Broadbent said. “Making this available online, and for tablet and mobile devices real-time and up-to-date, is an extension of that pioneering vision.”
