Business News

Sky Racing World, the Louisville, Kentucky-based distributor of international horse-racing content and subsidiary of Australian wagering operator Tabcorp, has launched harness racing from multiple Australian states in North America. 

Following harness runner Lazarus’ winning American debut on Aug. 10th at Hoosier Park, Indiana, US racing fans’ appetite for Southern Hemisphere harness racing has never been stronger.

Sky Racing World will serve increased North American demand by providing simulcast wagering from major trot races run in New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia, to its more than 70 US ADW partners,  including TVG, TwinSpires, Xpressbet, NYRABets, WatchandWager, HPIbet, AmWager, and BetAmerica

David Haslett, President and CEO, at Sky Racing World, said: “US harness racing has been available in Australia for several years, so we’re excited to extend the two markets’ relationship by bringing the best Australian harness racing to North America, where interest is just as strong. Harness racing complements our core Australian thoroughbred racing product, which continues to hold the international spotlight following the history-making performances of horses like Winx.”
