Payment Processing Success! A Follow up From the 2015 Breeders' Cup World Championships

November 4 2015 | By Louis Georgakakis

The results are in: Pivotal Payments' sponsorship of the 2015 edition of the Breeders' Cup was a payment processing success! As a Corporate Partner of Thoroughbred racing's premier international event and the Official Credit Card Processor, Pivotal handles all electronic payments for physical locations such as the Breeders' Cup headquarters in Lexington, Ky., and the event's online purchases and ticketing. The Breeders' Cup selected Pivotal Payments because of our strong history of growth and commitment to excellence and innovation in the merchant services industry.

In actual racing news, The Breeders' Cup World Championships was held at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky on October 30 to 31 with the expected champion, American Pharoah, routing seven rivals to jaunt to a 6 ½-length victory in the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic. American Pharoah becomes the first horse to achieve a historic "Grand Slam" of wins in all three spring classics and took centerpiece stakes at the world championships.

Pivotal kicked off the event's festivities with a reception cocktail at the VIP & Horsemen Hospitality Lounge, where attendees got to speak with our Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Frank LoSchiavo. We appreciated networking with everyone who attended and look forward to continuing to inform you of payment trends, industry news and upcoming financial technology that is driving innovation in the payments industry.

In related news, Pivotal Payments is now the exclusive payment processor for the Breeders' Cup official milliner, Christine A. Moore Millinery, one of the world's leading headwear designers.
