The service will officially launch on Sunday 5 April and will allow US sports fans and bettors to access broadcasts of horse racing from Japan.
Japan.- Sky Racing World will launch a new simulcasting product that will allow American audiences to watch horse racing from the National Association of Racing (NAR).
According to Inside Asian Gaming, the service will officially launch on Sunday 5 April and racing will be offered from three tracks: Tokyo City Keiba, Funabashi and Kawasaki.
“We have been working together with Japan NAR to launch the simulcast of their Japanese racing product into North America for some time,” David Haslett, President and CEO at Sky Racing World, said.
“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,” he added.
Sky Racing World’s simulcasting catalogue already includes racing from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Korea and Singapore.
