All wagers were processed using NYX's Openbet platform. This also saw a staggering rate of 68,000 each minute during peak times. That number included over 75% being placed via a mobile device with the balance being placed via desktop and various other platforms. This event is the U.K oldest horse races having been first held in 1839. The race covers over 4 miles and offers a £1,000,000 purse for the winner.

Matt Davey, the CEO for NYX mentioned that this event is a major race for horse racing fans in the UK and abroad and consumes months of preparation. It adds a large amount of demand on operators such as NYX, who focus on ensuring their clients are given a high level of quality and service.
