InCompass Financial Services (IFS) allows horsemen to access their Horsemen’s Bookkeeper accounts online. The service is free of charge, and offers owners and trainers the ability to view their account balances, statements and tax forms, and to request a check, from every participating racetrack, all in one place. Both Gulfstream Park and Tampa Bay Downs are participating racetracks.
To create an IFS account, you will first need to register for an EquineLine.com Universal ID.
Click “Sign Up Now” and fill in the Customer Information. Choose a user name and a password of between 5 and 30 characters (letters and numbers only, no special characters), verify that you are not a robot, and click “continue.” You will be given a chance to review the information you’ve entered and make any necessary corrections. If the information is correct, click “next.” The next page offers Service Options, but you do not need to select any products (be sure to unclick any boxes that are checked). Click “continue” and then click “finish” and your Universal ID will be activated.
Log into InCompass Financial Services and you can link your IFS account to your Horsemen’s Bookkeeper accounts at all participating racetracks.
BEFORE YOU CAN ADD AN ACCOUNT, YOU WILL NEED YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER, AND YOU WILL NEED TO CALL THE HORSEMEN’S BOOKKEEPER AT THAT RACETRACK TO REQUEST A PIN.
Gulfstream Park Horsemen’s Bookkeeper – (954) 457-6222
Tampa Bay Downs Horsemen’s Bookkeeper – (813) 298-1637
Once you have all account numbers and PINS handy:
Enter your Universal ID and password and click “Login.” Click “Add Account” and choose the racetrack you want from the dropdown menu. Enter the account number and PIN and click “Add Account” under the PIN. Repeat for each account you’d like to access.
You will now be able to access all information or request a check for any account, and you can create a consolidated statement from all of your accounts.
