BC Announces Broadcast Partnership in U.K. and Ireland



Breeders' Cup has entered into multi-year agreements with ITV, Sky Sports Racing and Racing TV to continue their live broadcast coverage of the Breeders' Cup World Championships in the U.K. and Ireland.

“The Breeders' Cup World Championships is a premier international event and we're delighted that fans in the U.K. and Ireland will once again be able to watch the most talented horses, jockeys and trainers in the world compete during our two days of championship racing,” said Breeders' Cup President and CEO Drew Fleming. “ITV, Sky Sports Racing and Racing TV have been terrific partners and we are pleased to extend our agreements to provide world-class coverage of the Breeders' Cup to fans in the U.K. and Ireland.”

As part of the multi-year agreement, ITV will provide coverage of the two-day World Championships on ITV channels, including ITV, ITV3 and ITV4. Broadcast coverage times will be announced at a later date.

ITV will also work alongside Breeders' Cup to offer a consumer competition in which winners will receive a trip for two to the World Championships, including premium tickets and access to the Breeders' Cup, airfare, hotel accommodations and transportation.
