Racecourse Data Company (RDC) is a joint venture with 57 British racecourses involving the licensing and control of Pre-Raceday Data (PRD).
The new company has been formed by Racecourse Media Group (RMG) and Arena Racing Company (ARC), plus nine independent racecourses as shareholders.
RDC has been assigned the PRD (Pre-Race Data) licence from Racing Enterprises Limited (REL). PRD is information that you would find on a racecard, such as final fields, owners, trainers, jockeys, weight, colours, draw and ratings.
This enables RDC the right to license PRD to all third parties via a simple and coherent licensing regime. This enhances control of PRD and engenders a consistent approach to licensing via a transparent rate-card utilised across all customers. Weatherbys will continue its role in providing PRD services.
