TVG Horse Racing Network Seizing the Moment Amidst Pandemic

A handful of U.S. tracks have soldiered on through the pandemic, closing their gates to fans and running strictly for a TV and simulcast audience. TVG is providing a bit of balm for two bereft populations — people who watch sports, and people who bet on them — by continuing to show races on its cable channel and offering wagering via its website. Fox’s FS1 and FS2 networks also are airing some live horse racing.

With so few tracks still operating, TVG’s 24-hour menu has grown a bit eclectic. Last Saturday, it followed the prestigious Florida Derby with a race for $7,000 claimers from Golden Gate Fields in California. Even paint horses, a breed usually seen in cowboy movies, got a turn on the stage from Oklahoma’s Remington Park.

On Saturday and Sunday, NBCSN will simulcast TVG’s “Trackside Live” program for the third week in a row, dropping three hours of racing in among the taped monster-truck rallies and old NFL games. That will give another 80 million households the chance to see a sports event unfold in real time, lending a little slice of normalcy to a homebound nation.

“I’ve done a lot of shows at TVG, but I’ve never done anything like what we’re doing now,” said Todd Schrupp, a Minnesota native who has spent 21 years at the network. “Social distancing is a physical directive. We can still bond as a community, and sports is a communal event, even if you’re not at the venue.
