Fantastic!! A big thanks for passing this along.

Glad to see that Simon will be part of the broadcast crew. Corey Nakatani will have some insight although he's no Jerry Bailey in the broadcast studio ;>

Also noted that ESPN360.com will carry it on-line live too, although there is a catch. Your ISP has to be affiliated with ESPN.

Comcast in Chicago, for example, isn't so no dice here but I have TVG so I'm happy.

According to one article I read TVG thanked the Dubai Racing Club for their efforts.

I have a feeling TVG may have some high contactts and used them...

So much for the supposed fall of TVG...it would seem to me if HRTV and TrackNet want to fight, TVG seems up to the task.

Blah -- I have both channels and will watch it on HRTV if it means I get international coverage and don't have to deal with Schrupp.

If can get any more complex, per the DRF the race will be aired on ABC Sports.

DRF 3/27/08

quote: "Post time for the first Thoroughbred race is 9:40 a.m. Eastern in the U.S. The World Cup is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Eastern and will be broadcast on tape delay at 2:30 on ABC. The races can be seen live on HorseRacing TV and TVG."
