NEW HORSE RACING TV NETWORK INKS NINE U.S. RACETRACKS
Published September 22, 1997
Nine racetracks "have signed contracts or letters of intent" with ODS Entertainment to become part of the proposed TV Games Network (TVG), a "national entertainment and wagering network featuring horse racing," according to an AP report in the Baltimore SUN. Churchill Downs, Hollywood Park and Pimlico are among those that committed the "bulk of their races exclusively" to ODS over the next five years. TVG, which "is expected" to begin broadcasting by late '98, will been seen on subscriber's TV through cable carriage, and will provide odds, weather conditions, scratches, equipment and jockey changes, handicapping data and results. Wagering "will be possible" in states that have legislation already in place (Baltimore SUN/AP, 9/21).
