Under two new partnership agreements, Sky Sports Racing has acquired exclusive UK and Ireland broadcast rights for all races from Woodbine, Saratoga, Aqueduct and Belmont Park Racecourses. Belmont Stakes Day races are already contracted to Sky Sports Racing for exclusive broadcast in the UK by rights holder NBC Universal.
Sky Sports Racing will bring high-quality HD signals from each track into its nightly, studio-hosted US racing broadcasts while a close collaboration between attheraces.com and the racecourses will drive comprehensive digital and social media coverage for race fans.
Matthew Imi, Chief Executive, At The Races said: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with two racing organisations as forward thinking and respected as NYRA and Woodbine. Their venues host high quality racing and their East coast locations are increasingly attracting British and Irish trained horses. This complements our offering of the world’s best international racing, and we’re excited about promoting and showcasing NYRA and Woodbine racing in the UK and Ireland.”
