The Breeders' Cup, with the help of iPhone app developer Rock Software, has announced the official Breeder's Cup iPhone app. The Breeders' Cup world championships will occur on November 5 and 6 at Churchill Downs. The iPhone app will allow users to watch all 14 championship races live and free directly from their Apple iPhone. The app was rated 4.5 stars out of 5 on Apple's iTunes app store out of 48 ratings; sounds like the real deal. Android users, sorry, no app for you, however, they do plan to release an iPad app in advance of the races.
According to Breeders' Cup, additional features on the Official Breeders’ Cup app include:
- Get the top stories and all the latest news leading up to and during The Breeders’ Cup World Championships;
- Access important information, powered by Equibase, about each of the 14 Championship races, including biographical information and current race records for all the possible contenders in each division;
