Sal Sinatra To Serve As HISA Adviser

Sal Sinatra | MJC

Former president and CEO of Equibase, Sal Sinatra, will advise the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority (HISA) for the next six months on the integration of the InCompass interface at racetracks with the HISA portal, they said in a statement Thursday.

Sinatra designed, programmed and installed racing office software for more than 30 racetracks when he was a principal with TSNS in the late 1980s, before it was acquired by a subsidiary of The Jockey Club. The TSNS assets were then merged into what is now known as InCompass, the industry standard for racing offices.

HISA's portal utilizes InCompass' data stream to synchronize all horse-related information. Sinatra will assist HISA's technology team, led by Chief Technology Officer Steve Keech, to streamline workflow and provide a more seamless experience for users.

“Sal's subject matter expertise and relationships with racing offices across the country will be a major value-add to HISA and to the entire industry as we enter this new chapter in Thoroughbred racing,” said Keech.

“This is a crucial moment for Thoroughbred racing's future, and I am grateful to join the team working to make compliance with HISA's rules simple and straightforward for all involved,” said Sinatra. “I look forward to serving as a resource to the HISA team and to horsemen around the country as they continue to get acquainted with HISA's rules and requirements.”
