TVG to handle Woodbine races in U.S.


Woodbine Entertainment Group has reached an agreement with TVG, the horse racing network and wagering site, to broadcast both its Thoroughbred and Standardbred racing from Woodbine and Mohawk throughout the United States.

TVG will also offer online wagering on all Woodbine races through its TVG.com website.

Coverage and wagering will begin Sunday, and TVG customers will be able to play Woodbine s new weekly pick six, which will have $150,000 added to any non-carryover pool.
