1/ST CONTENT expands its reach to add elite Moroccan racing to burgeoning international portfolio

Published

on

 

1/ST CONTENT, the leading provider of premium content for North American horse racing, has broadened its dominant global footprint outside of the Americas with the announcement of a new venture into Moroccan racing.

Having won the international distribution rights, courtesy of Société Royale d’Encouragement du Cheval (SOREC), for this Saturday 18th November’s prestigious Morocco International Meeting (MIM) at the famous Hippodrome de Casablanca, 1/ST CONTENT will continue to widen its influence across a raft of global racing content in 2024 with a burgeoning international portfolio of racetracks and marquee meetings.

The Morocco International Meeting is now in its ninth year, and this breakout deal begins as as a one-year agreement relating to tote betting into local pools across 8 elite international races this weekend (featuring prominent horses, jockeys and owners from the UK, France and Spain) with scope and an option to renew and evolve the partnership across other pools and fixed-odds formats in the years ahead.

Aside from 1/ST CONTENT’s unrivalled network of North American racetracks, which provide over 3,300 race-days each year, the company also manages the international distribution rights for many of the top tracks in LatAm amongst an ever-growing portfolio. Accordingly, Morocco’s Hippodrome de Casablanca now joins other world-renowned venues, such as Hipódromo de San Isidro in Buenos Aires and Hipódromo da Gávea in Rio de Janeiro. It’s the latest move in 1/ST CONTENT’s unfolding strategy of locking up more and more cornerstone tracks and big-race meetings across emerging markets as it widens its international footprint.

A spokesperson for Société Royale d’Encouragement du Cheval (SOREC), said: “We are glad to announce our partnership with 1/ST CONTENT, a collaboration that underscores our commitment to elevating Moroccan horse races on the global stage, which will enhance our ability to attract international participants for our prestigious races.

“The data and wagering technology from 1/ST CONTENT, along with broadcast and video streaming rights, make them the most suited provider for betting formats via their EasyGate integration, thus contributing to growth in the international racing sector.”

Simon Fraser, Senior Vice President International at 1/ST CONTENT, added: “We’re delighted to announce to our growing group of worldwide partners that we’ve secured the distribution rights for this jewel in the emerging Moroccan horse racing scene. The opening day of the festival features 8 elite international races, comprised of many intercontinental challengers for a more familiar feel, as raiders from Europe, backed by a truly global ownership group, all converge on Casablanca.

“Our friends at SOREC have pulled together the best resources to organize this event in accordance with the highest equine-welfare standards, as MIM continues its mission to bolster awareness of Moroccan horse racing on the world stage. The racing data and broadcast media are all set from the usual sources, with a simple integration available via our market-leading EasyGate API.”

Rush Street Gaming announced that international gaming executive Susan Foster has been appointed general manager of Rivers Casino Philadelphia.

“Having worked in various gaming jurisdictions in America and several other countries, I’m both an advocate for and an example of the tremendous opportunities casino gaming provides. I’m very excited to be back in Pennsylvania at such a dynamic property,” Foster said.

Foster began her casino career as a table games dealer in the UK, Nigeria, and the Bahamas. She later spent 14 years in Mississippi at Grand Casino & Resort and Bally’s Entertainment, where she led table games and poker operations. She then served as director of table games for Odawa Casino in Michigan, before accepting her first Pennsylvania job with Harrah’s Philadelphia.

While at Harrah’s, Foster received Caesars Entertainment’s highest award for excellence in leadership. Thereafter, Foster transitioned from the gaming floor to casino operations in 2015 with Hollywood Casino, where she served as vice president of operations at multiple Penn Entertainment properties for nearly a decade.

National Council on Problem Gambling Launches Tribal Advisory Council

Published

on

The National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG), the only national nonprofit organization that seeks to reduce the economic and social costs associated with gambling addiction, has launched the Tribal Advisory Council. While NCPG has worked with Tribal gaming entities for many years, the formation of the Tribal Advisory Council represents a deeper level of collaboration to address matters of responsible gambling and problem gambling that are of importance to Native American communities.

The Tribal Advisory Council seeks to increase awareness and respect for Native cultures as they relate to all facets of gambling so that these cultural practices can help other Native and non-Native communities. The Advisory Council will provide expertise and momentum for NCPG’s culturally specific work while recognizing the importance of Native American history and sovereignty in consultation with Native American leaders and experts.

“Our work with tribes is based on a deep respect for Tribal sovereignty and our core values of neutrality, collaboration, respect and credibility. We have a responsibility to listen and learn, as well as the opportunity to share our knowledge as we seek to reduce the social costs of gambling addiction and improve health and wellness in all communities. The relationships and partnerships we have forged over the years are the strong foundation for this exciting new project,” said Keith Whyte, NCPG Executive Director.

To help facilitate the work of the Tribal Advisory Council, NCPG has partnered with Valerie Spicer and Sheila Morago of the Trilogy Group. The Trilogy Group is a Native American-owned and operated organization with over 50 years of combined experience in governmental affairs, business, economic development, and Tribal gaming.

“We applaud the formation of the NCPG’s Tribal Advisory Council and look forward to supporting stronger connection with the Tribes. This work acknowledges the significance of Tribal Gaming in the gambling sector, the impacts of Tribal gaming on communities, and ways we can support finding balance in helping people heal from gambling-related harm respectfully amid the complexity,” said Valerie Spicer, Trilogy Group Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer.
