Belmont Park: TVG back on board later today


TVG officials hope to be able to show the last three races from Belmont Park today either live or on tape delay.

Tony Allevato, the executive producer of TVG, said that due to a contractual agreement to show today's 13-race card from Delaware Park  --- as well as exclusive agreements with Woodbine and Turfway Park and Monmouth Park -- it made it virtually impossible to show today's early races from Belmont. TVG does not have an exclusive agreement with the New York Racing Association. Belmont's races are also available on HRTV.

 Allevato said that he hopes that by the time Belmont's eighth race comes around, TVG will be able to show that as well as the featured Bowling Green, and the nightcap.

Allevato said that life should ``be back to normal'' on Sunday and for the remainder of the Belmont fall meet.
