Emerald enters TVG deal


Emerald Downs has signed a multiyear agreement with Television Games Network for the exclusive television and account wagering rights to the track's races. The agreement also provides for source-market fees to be paid to Emerald Downs when Washington residents wager through TVG.

TVG, a subsidiary of Gemstar-TV Guide International Inc. and a marketing partner of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, received a license to conduct advance deposit wagering in Washington on Thursday from the Washington Horse Racing Commission.
