Sky Racing World, distributor of horse-racing content to the Americas and subsidiary of Australian wagering operator Tabcorp, recently announced the expansion of its partnership with TVG, the California-based racing-focused TV network and advance depositing wagering (ADW) site.
Sky Racing World currently provides Australian horse-racing content for simulcast wagering to the TVG.com ADW brand.
The expanded partnership will allow TVG networks to air full-card coverage of top-tier Australian races on the key regional race nights of Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9 March 2017. Available on TVG carriage platforms AT&T U-Verse 672, DIRECT TV and Dish Network 398, coverage will also be accessible to TVG account holders online via TVG.com/live.
TVG International Racing Coordinator Candice Hare will be the lead presenter of TVG’s Australian coverage. Three Australian race meetings will feature each night with an in-depth focus on the evening’s feature race, led by Hare and her co-presenters.
The G1 Australian Cup, G1 Lexus Newmarket Handicap and G1 Coolmore Classic will be the focus of the first weekend’s broadcast.
TVG’s expanded Australian coverage will be supported by Sky Racing World’s website, which features free form guides, past performances and latest Australian racing news.
David Haslett, President and CEO of Sky Racing World, comments: “As a major ADW partner, TVG has been key to growing our flagship Australian racing product in North America, so we’re excited to expand our partnership with their new Australian racing TV coverage.
“We look forward to the new broadcasts raising North American interest in Australian racing during the current Sydney Autumn Carnival, featuring The Championships, and beyond.”
Kip Levin, CEO of TVG, says: “We are always trying to bring the best, most competitive racing in the world to our viewers and ADW customers and as part of that, we are very pleased to expand our partnership with Sky Racing World and Australian racing.”
