Tabcorp’s racing broadcasting subsidiary Sky Racing World has extended its partnership with US-facing broadcaster and betting operator TVG.
Sky Racing World already provides Australian horse racing content for simulcast wagering to the Paddy Power Betfair-owned TVG.com advance deposit wagering brand, with the extended partnership set to include full-card coverage of top-tier Australian races on the key regional race nights of Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
TVG’s Australian coverage, which will be complemented by betting promotions on TVG.com, will be presented by Candice Hare, with three Australian race meetings featuring each night, including an in-depth focus on the evening’s feature race.
“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,” said David Haslett, president and CEO of Sky Racing World. “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.”
Upcoming broadcasts include the G1 George Ryder Stakes and the Golden Slipper at Rosehill Gardens on March 17th, and The Championships at Royal Randwick Racecourse on March 31st and April 7th, culminating in the G1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
“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,” said Kip Levin, CEO of California-headquartered TVG.
