Harness: USTA launches new mobile site


The U.S. Trotting Association announced the relaunch of a new and improved mobile site at m.ustrotting.com on Tuesday (April 25).

Originally launched in April 2015 with basic links to news, entries & results and top performers on the homepage, the new site has a new look, more features and additional information.

A new menu bar has added links for My Account, Online Foal Registration, Contacts and Fan Zone. A Racing link contains both Entries & Results, with additional information, and Top Performers. 

Entries & Results has added the ability to search by horse as well as by date and track directly from the homepage. All entries now include post times, trainers and the morning line odds for each race.

Also, the homepage now highlights the top news stories with a photo and a link to video when available for the lead news item and has added a summary of each story to the list of top News Headlines. A more extensive archive of news stories is available through the News Headlines link in the menu.

In the Racing link, the Results tab now contains unofficial results that can be checked during the race card instead of having to wait until the end of the day’s races plus the names of the breeders and owners of the top three finishers of each race. 

The Contacts link includes all new information with website links to major harness racing organizations and publications in the Industry Links tab while the Track Contacts tab provides contact information and website links to all harness tracks in the U.S. 

Members now have direct access to their online services through the My Account link, including online entry and the owner dashboard, as well as in the new Online Foal Registration link.

The Fan Zone option links to the USTA’s social media website, www.HarnessRacingFanZone.com.

Finally, social media icon links to the USTA platforms on Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo and YouTube as well as to the Harness Racing FanZone’s Instagram page have also been added to the bottom of the homepage.
