LOUISVILLE, KY., (June 09, 2020) – United Tote, a leading supplier of pari-mutuel accounting services, totalisator systems, equipment and technology worldwide, announced today a multi-year extension for United Tote’s pari-mutuel wagering technology services and equipment with Keeneland Association, the historic Kentucky Thoroughbred racetrack and sales agency located in Lexington, Kentucky. The extension builds upon a longstanding relationship between United Tote and Keeneland Association spanning three decades.
“We have enjoyed a great relationship with United Tote over many years,” said Robert Elliston, Keeneland’s Vice President of Racing & Sales, “and they continue to be a great partner in advancing our combined goal of unparalleled service to our customers while deploying best in class wagering technology in the most secure environment.”
“Keeneland continues to serve as a gold standard of excellence in Thoroughbred racing,” said Nate Simon, President of United Tote. “We’re very pleased to have the opportunity to extend our partnership for many years to come. We remain committed to providing Keeneland with exemplary service and the industry’s most state-of-the-art equipment. We look forward to the future as we strive to build opportunities for innovation and continued prosperity.”
In the coming year, United Tote will upgrade more than half of all terminals at Keeneland with UT’s flagship G-Terminal.
As in 2015, United Tote will once again serve as host tote for the 36th Breeders’ Cup World Thoroughbred Championships to run at Keeneland on November 6 and 7, 2020. Keeneland will also host a special abbreviated Summer Meet July 8 – 12 to replace the previously cancelled 2020 Spring Meet due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
