Del Mar Commissions Sona Mobile to Develop Wireless Wagering Platform

Del Mar commissioned Sona Mobile Holdings Corporation to make a wireless betting and racing information platform to be used for the on-track wagering for this year's meeting, which will start on July 18th, 2007.

The wireless betting application will allow for secure and safe bets by customers using their PDAs, like Windows Mobile Smartphones and RIM Blackberry Devices.

Craig Farel, executive vice president of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, said that they are very happy that Sona Mobile has chosen to debut their wireless betting application at the Del Mar for this racing season.

They are hoping with this brand new technology, combined with other new features at the track will ensure that the 2007 racing season will be one of the most successful racing seasons.

Users of the betting platform will have the opportunity to see real time Del Mar racing results, scratches, basic account information, race results and even a live video feed. Past Del Mar horse races can also be seen together with handicapping information.

Shawn Kreloff, the chief executive officer of Sona Mobile Holdings said that Sona Mobile's partnership with the DMTC extends with their platform to one of the premiere horse racing destinations in the country.

They are hoping that this new development will give them the chance to offer their customers a variety of mobile betting offerings.
