TVG Network galloped into the fantasy-sports market.

The Gemstar-TV Guide International-owned interactive horse-racing channel launched a year-round fantasy-horse-racing game on its Web site and on FOXSports.com.

Racing fans can own and manage their own virtual stable consisting of horses, trainers and jockeys. Game play begins Dec. 26.

“Millions of sports fans participate in fantasy leagues, and we’re confident that a dynamic fantasy-horse-racing game accessed by leading sports portals such as FOXSports.com could ultimately bring more and younger fans to the sport of horse racing and to our other platforms, including the TVG Network and TVGFree.net,” TVG general manager David Nathanson said in a prepared statement.
