TVG Has Busy Weekend Covered

TVG logo
Big racing weekends are commonplace for TVG, America’s horseracing network, and the one upcoming is no exception.

On Sunday, TVG will present live, on-site coverage from Toronto in the form of Woodbine’s three major Breeders’ Cup Challenge races – the
Pattison Canadian International, the E.P. Taylor Stakes and the Nearctic Stakes.

The Pattison Canadian International, in its 74th renewal, traditionally brings together some of the world’s premier turf runners, and this year the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in the Grade I $1.5 million, 1 ½-mile contest is an expense-paid berth in the Breeders’ Cup Turf at Churchill Downs on November 5. Post time for the Pattison Canadian International is scheduled for 5:42 p.m. ET.

For the winner of the Grade I, $1 million, 1 ¼-mile E.P. Taylor Stakes, the bonus is a spot in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf. In the Grade I, $500,000, six-furlong Nearctic Stakes, a trip to the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint is at stake.

Reporting live from Woodbine will be Simon Bray and Paul LoDuca. Action will also air live on FSN Prime Ticket and MSG+, and on tape delay on Sun Sports and MASN (check local listings).

“The Pattison Canadian International and E.P. Taylor are two important racing fixtures that annually attract some of the world’s leading turf horses,” said Tony Allevato, TVG’s executive vice president. “The 2011 renewals are shaping up as strong events and are primed to showcase a number of Breeders’ Cup contenders.”

On Saturday, the live action will come from historic
Ascot outside of London where Frankel, considered by many to be the world’s leading Thoroughbred, attempts to stretch his unbeaten record to 9-0 in the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, as her majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, looks on. Frankel, named for the Hall of Fame trainer Bobby Frankel, goes for his fourth consecutive Group I win.

TVG’s coverage begins at 9:00 a.m. ET, with post time for the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes scheduled for 10:35 a.m. ET. Providing commentary for the race, as well as the other major events on the British Champions Day card will be Bray, joined by network CEO, Stephen Burn.  

Also on Saturday the network will serve as title sponsor of the Grade III, $200,000 TVG Hawthorne Derby, a 1 1/8-mile test for three year-olds run outside Chicago. Mike Joyce will be on-site to host TVG’s coverage of the race.

TVG account holders can wager on all Woodbine, Ascot and Hawthorne races at www.TVG.com. Those wagering on the TVG Hawthorne Derby will receive 10x Wager Rewards points, while those wagering on the Ascot races receive 3x Wager Reward points.
