Well, maybe 'amazing' is too strong a word. They just showed a TVG statement that explained that this coverage goes through the end of Churchill's September meet. Today's the 20th, so we're getting a whole (if I've counted correctly :P) eight days.
woo hoo.

Churchill Downs will be on @TVG again for their fall meet!

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Does that mean that the Breeders' Cup races will be shown on TVG next weekend, at least up until NBC's coverage starts? That would be great, since even NBCSN's coverage tends to miss the early races on the card.

Simon and Todd just said some goodbyes to Tom Cassidy, who is apparently no longer going to be on-air as a full-time host. He's going to working within the 'organization' (Betfair, I presume?) on 'industry relations.'
He'll be back on-air for next spring's Monmouth meeting.
Couldn't we swap Schtupp for Cassidy? :roll:

Due to dropping cable tv earlier this year and going with a cheap streaming package, I wondered how I was going to watch the Breeders' Cup races not shown on NBC (which I get OTA) on my tv. Turns out the Breeders' Cup website streams all of the races using a "player's feed (Churchill's?)", so I watched that. I could mirror it to my tv. The Samsung browser on my tv didn't support the video. I use Twinspires, so I could watch the races there, too. I had RTN for a bit, but they don't carry Churchill (surprise, surprise) and don't have an app for the Apple TV yet. Mostly I watch NYRA and they have a great free app.

RTN did carry the Breeders Cup days from Churchill, so there's that.

Oh, that's good to know that RTN did carry the Breeders' Cup. If they come out with an Apple TV app, I will subscribe to them again.
