1/ST Content expands Canadian offering with Assiniboia Downs

It will provide betting content across the tracks 50-fixture schedule

1/ST CONTENT has expanded its Canadian horse racing offering through a long-term international distribution deal with Assiniboia Downs (ASD).

The company will provide betting content across a 50-fixture schedule which starts today, May 20. Highlights of ASD’s schedule include the Manitoba Derby, the Gold Cup, and the Winnipeg Futurity.

“The sheer distributional scope of 1/ST CONTENT’s international operator network is second to none. Therefore, it was a logical step for ASD to partner with them to distribute our upcoming calendar to a new legion of bettors outside Canada, thereby increasing returns to the core stakeholders of our domestic scene here in Winnipeg,” said ASD CEO Darren Dunn.

1/ST CONTENT has similar deals with other racetracks in Canada, including Woodbine, Fort Erie, and Hastings. It currently partners with a range of fixed-odds, spread-betting, and commingled wagering companies such as Flutter Entertainment, bet365 and Entain.

“1/ST CONTENT is delighted to have added Assiniboia Downs to our all-encompassing North American roster, optimizing our wider Canadian content and introducing a fresh cohort of global racing fans to one of the true hidden gems in North America,” added Senior Vice President at 1/ST CONTENT Simon Fraser. “We look forward to delivering more coverage of high-class Canadian racing than ever before to fans and bettors around the world.”

According to 1/ST CONTENT, this latest deal is emblematic of its commitment to ensuring North American racing’s stakeholders become the primary beneficiaries of revenues generated through international wagering.
