Arkansas Residents Can Now Enjoy the Races “Anywhere”

HOT SPRINGS, AR (Monday, Dec. 30, 2013) – Oaklawn is now offering Arkansas residents an innovative way to watch and wager on the races through their smart phones, tablets and personal computers with the launch of OaklawnAnywhere.com. Race fans can set up an account to use while at the track or “Anywhere” they wish.

Oaklawn has partnered with TwinSpires.com, a subsidiary of Churchill Downs, to bring this convenient betting option that will allow fans to enjoy the thrills of live racing anywhere and anytime. It’s free to open an account and members will have access to all the Oaklawn races as well as races from the most popular U.S. and international tracks. Members of OaklawnAnywhere will enjoy special offers, promotions, handicapping tools and free past performances.

“Arkansas racing fans are among the most enthusiastic in the business and we know that many of them already have online wagering accounts with other companies,” said Director of Wagering and Gaming Bobby Geiger. “The benefit of opening an account with OaklawnAnywhere is that the money stays in Arkansas, it benefits Arkansans through taxes collected by the state and the horsemen will benefit from increased purses.”

Fans can sign up for an OaklawnAnywhere account by visiting OaklawnAnywhere.com or by visiting the OaklawnAnywhere help desk located on the first floor of the Oaklawn grandstand. Members must be 18-years-old and an Arkansas resident. For more information, visit www.OaklawnAnywhere.com.
