“We want to thank The Jockey Club and specifically Chase Webb, manager of software development; Millisa Eubanks, primary developer; and Ian Kaster, designer and technical director, for all the work they have put toward this project,” said Cate Masterson, the Museum director. “We are thrilled with the new look and features on the Hall of Fame inductee pages and believe visitors will have a truly enjoyable experience learning about the amazing racehorses and humans who have earned Hall of Fame induction. The Jockey Club has been a wonderful partner of the Museum in so many ways and we can’t thank them enough for all of the enhancements they have helped us with from a technology standpoint.” The new Hall of Fame inductee biography pages include more than 2,000 images and 165 Daily Racing Form past performances for racehorses.
