TVG Rides Across Arabian Peninsula


Dubai Sports Channel will carry TVG’s horse-racing programming in approximately 1.5 million homes in the United Arab Emirates and 7 million throughout other markets in the region, including Saudi Arabia, under terms of an agreement announced Wednesday.

The pact covers simulcast racing coverage and select programming.

“Our relationship with Dubai Sports Channel will greatly benefit U.S. breeders and horsemen by providing widespread exposure for them in the Middle East,” TVG general manager David Nathanson said in a prepared statement. “Dubai in particular is widely recognized as home to some of thoroughbred racing's most prominent owners and breeders who greatly impact horse racing around the world.”
