Horse racing enthusiasts are connecting online to enjoy the 2010 World Championships in the unlikeliest of places. Not at the track, but online!
It may seem out of character but the conservative world of horse racing is embracing the modern evils of online technology to bring the sport of kings to the masses rather than the masses to the tracks, but we’re living in a modern world where unless news-makers deliver the news themselves then they’re not in the news.

Broadcasting horse racing championship through progressive media channels like ESPN, Youtube, iPhone and Digiturf.com can only be good news for the sport.

Even though ‘baby boomers’ might prefer to view it from the stands there is generations X, Y & Z that expect to see their horses running to them online through the internet.
