|The Jockey Club Publishes Inaugural Fact Book Racing Chronicle|
The Jockey Club announced today that it will now offer The Jockey Club Fact Book Chronicle as part of the free online Fact Book on its website.
In 2021, The Jockey Club offered a free PDF of The American Racing Manual. The Fact Book Racing Chronicle will contain much of the information that was found in The American Racing Manual. However, the source and format of some of the data will differ from last year’s manual. For example, past performances will now come directly from Equibase, and charts from graded stakes races will be provided through links to equibase.com.
“The information in The Jockey Club Fact Book Chronicle is valuable for everyone from researchers and reporters to handicappers and casual racing fans, and we are pleased to be able to provide this resource as part of our Fact Book,” said James L. Gagliano, president and chief operating officer of The Jockey Club. “In the coming years, we plan to add additional content and make the information more dynamic, and we welcome feedback on potential additions to the Chronicle.”
Feedback on the Fact Book Chronicle can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
