Sky Racing to provide South Korean horse-racing to NA

Sky Racing World, the Kentucky-based distributor of international horse-racing content and subsidiary of Australian wagering operator Tabcorp, has entered into a partnership with the Korea Racing Authority (KRA).

The agreement will allow Sky Racing to distribute horse-racing content from the KRA-operated LetsRun Park Seoul and Busan-Gyeongnam tracks to advance depositing wagering (ADW) sites throughout the Americas and Europe, from August 3, 2017.

Distributed via the Roberts Communications with a race call in English, Sky Racing World’s Korean racing content will be simulcast 50 weeks a year.

On Thursday and Saturday nights, races will be simulcast from the KRA’s LetsRun Park Busan-Gyeongnam in the country’s second largest city, and from the capital’s LetsRun Park Seoul track on Friday and Saturday nights.

The South Korean racing schedule will continue weekly through August before reaching its summer climax on Saturday, September 9, 2017, with the second annual G1 Keeneland Korea Cup.

David Haslett, president and CEO of Sky Racing World, said: “South Koreans wager over $7 billion annually on horse-racing and the quality of the country’s racing is comparable to our core Australian product. It therefore serves as an important addition to the international horse-racing content we provide to ADWs.”

Seong Won Jeon, marketing director at the Korea Racing Authority, said: “The KRA has been operating thoroughbred horse-racing in Korea for nearly 100 years. With its rich field size and easy-to-learn form, more than 1,000 races are simulcast annually in countries like Australia, Singapore and Malaysia. With this partnership with Sky Racing World, we hope race fans in the Americas will see and feel the excitement and the thrill that Korean racing has to offer.”
