TVG, America’s Horseracing Network, will provide a weekend of live, on-site coverage of world class racing at New York’s Belmont Park, featuring Saturday’s $1 million Grade 1 Jockey Club Gold Cup.
The Jockey Club Gold Cup Invitational, a 1 ¼ mile challenge for 3-year-olds and up, is shaping up as a showdown between Kentucky Derby winner Orb and Belmont Stakes winner Palace Malice. They will face a very established lineup of older stars of racing including Whitney winner Cross Traffic, Woodward winner Alpha and two-time Jockey Club Gold Cup defending champion Flat Out.
In addition to bringing viewers track-side seats to this fantastic weekend of racing, TVG will also offer customers the chance to “Double Your Odds”, for win wagers on the Jockey Club Gold Cup made through TVG and 4 NJ Bets wagering platforms. Winnings will be doubled if the winner finishes at least two lengths ahead of his competitors*. For all the details visit TVG.com or 4NJBets.com.
