TV Quenches Sports Fans’ Thirst for Live Content With Horse Racing From Around the Globe

“We are used to following the sun across the globe, and we hunt for live racing,” says Kevin Grigsby, executive producer/SVP, television, FanDuel  “We’re already an entity that is up and running four days a week, 24 hours a day. We air 60,000 races a year, and we are on live 10,000 hours a year. The reality is, if there is some type of horse racing taking place somewhere in the world, we will be broadcasting it. And, while we broadcast all of these races, we will also offer betting on them as we always have.”

TVG programming will be reaching an even broader audience beginning this weekend, thanks to a new partnership with NBC Sports in which NBCSN will simulcast TVG’s Trackside Live. NBCSN will carry TVG’s live racing coverage this Saturday and Sunday at 4-8 p.m. ET, as well as the following weekend (if horse races continue to be held). Although TVG is available in 45 million homes, NBCSN is in more than 80 million homes, which will bring live horse racing to a horde of potential viewers.
