TVG is expanding its agreement with Sky Racing World to offer increased television coverage of Australian horse racing and launch additional wagering promotions for TVG account holders on Australian racing.

“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, TVG’s CEO.

TVG networks will air full-card coverage of top-tier Australian tracks Thursdays through Saturdays with enhanced coverage of group races from venues such as Randwick, Rosehill and Flemington. TVG will also follow the campaign of superstar Winx (Street Cry {Ire}), who is scheduled to make her next start in the G1 George Ryder S. Mar. 18.

Coverage will be available on all TVG carriage platforms including AT&T U-Verse 672, DIRECT TV and Dish Network 398. TVG account holders can also watch TVG2’s coverage of Australian racing on TVG.com/live.

TVG International Racing Coordinator Candice Hare will provide nightly analysis, handicapping and tips alongside Sky Racing announcers in Australia. The network’s Mike Joyce will be at Sydney broadcasting live from The Championships.

“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.”
