Sky Racing World, a US-based subsidiary of Australian gaming and racing giant Tabcorp, is set to launch a new simulcasting product that will make Japan National Association of Racing (NAR) horse racing available to North American audiences. The service will officially launch on Sunday 5 April with races from Tokyo City Keiba, Oi Racecourse.
The Japan National Association of Racing is Sky Racing World’s exclusive partner in distributing the weekly simulcasts every Sunday through Thursday night.
At commencement, racing will be offered from three tracks: Tokyo City Keiba, Funabashi and Kawasaki.
Sky Racing World’s simulcasting catalogue already includes racing from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Korea and Singapore.
“We have been working together with Japan NAR to launch the simulcast of their Japanese racing product into North America for some time,” said David Haslett, President and CEO at Sky Racing World.
“It is pleasing to be able to introduce this quality entertainment offering, especially in these times when audiences have seen their usual sports entertainment offerings reduced. We have recently experienced the temporary cancellations of our racing simulcasts from New Zealand, South Africa and Korea due to coronavirus.”
