Las Vegas, NV (PressExposure) June 09, 2011 -- Horse Racing Simulation LLC, the world's largest developer and operator of online horse racing games and other virtual horse racing software programs, announced today that it will be providing its 3D simulation technology to NBC Sports, which will be utilized during its national broadcast of the 2011 Belmont Stakes to be run at Belmont Park on Saturday, June 11, 5-7 p.m. ET.
Horse Racing Simulation provided this same 3D racing simulation technology for NBC for this year's Preakness Stakes, which was featured during their broadcast coverage of the second leg of horse racing's Triple Crown.
Horse Racing Simulation has been building virtual horse racing games and 3D simulation race programs for over ten years, working with such media companies as Disney, Discovery Network, ESPN, as well as horse racing specific media organizations such as the NTRA (National Thoroughbred Racing Association). These 3D virtual horse race simulations are not just for entertainment, but can also be utilized as an educational tool to inform viewers on all aspects of horse racing, specifically how certain factors during a race affect the outcome.
"Our goal at HRS is to create as much awareness for the sport of horse racing as possible, whether it's through our horse racing games or other software products such as our 3D simulation program," said Michael Calderone, CEO of Horse Racing Simulation. "Creating, educating and engaging new racing fans is our number one objective. Working with NBC in their national coverage of the Belmont Stakes helps us reach that goal."
"Their horse racing simulation was a valuable production tool on our Preakness broadcast. It enabled us to show the viewer how our experts thought the race would be run and won," stated Fred Gaudelli, NBC Sports' Triple Crown Producer. "The graphics and animation are incredibly life-like and really provide a realistic and entertaining look at the sport. We are looking forward to working with them on the Belmont Stakes."
