Sky Racing World, the Kentucky-based distributor of international horse-racing content and subsidiary of Australian wagering operator Tabcorp, has re-launched its New Zealand racing product.
Sky Racing World began distributing horse-racing content from New Zealand Racing Board-operated tracks to North American advance depositing wagering (ADW) sites on 25 January, ahead of the G1 Karaka Million.
After a six-month hiatus, Sky Racing World will again distribute New Zealand horse-racing content to US and Canadian ADWs – including TVG, TwinSpires, Xpressbet, NYRA Bets, WatchandWager, AmWager, and BetAmerica.. Nine races will feature in this inaugural race-day run at Pukekohe Park Raceway, near Auckland.
Longines’ 2017 best-ranked world jockey Hugh Bowman will be riding Al Hasa in the G1 Karaka Million and Five to Midnight in the G3 Windsor Park Stud.
Following the Karaka Million, Sky Racing World will provide North American ADWs with New Zealand racing content from five to six days a week, depending on the racing schedule.
David Haslett, President and CEO of Sky Racing World, said: “Following the launch of our South Korean racing product last July, we’re excited to continue to diversify the international racing content available to our North American ADW partners and, by extension, their customers through our relaunched New Zealand racing product.
“Not only complementary to our core Australian racing product as well as the North American racing schedule, New Zealand offers world-class races – from the upcoming Karaka Million, to Auckland Cup week in March, to this autumn’s Spring Classic and New Zealand 2000 Guineas.”
