Tabcorp unit to bring more Australian racing to U.S.

Tabcorp unit, Sky Racing World, the exclusive distributor of Southern Hemisphere horse-racing content to the Americas has expanded its partnership with TVG, a California-headquartered racing-focused TV network and advance depositing wagering (ADW) site.

The companies’ new media partnership will see increased TV coverage of Australian racing on TVG and TVG2 from Thursday March 9th, 2017.

Sky Racing World provides Australian horseracing content for simulcast wagering to theTVG.Com ADW brand. Under the expanded partnership, the TVG networks will air full-card coverage of top-tier Australian races on the key regional race nights of Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Three Australian race meetings will feature each night, with an in-depth focus on the evening’s feature race.
