Sky Racing World To Launch Japan NAR Simulcasting On April 5

Sky Racing World, the Louisville, Ky.-based distributor of international horse racing content and subsidiary of Australian wagering operator Tabcorp, has announced the launch of a new simulcasting product that will make Japan National Association of Racing (NAR) horse racing available to North American audiences. The service will officially launch on Sunday night, April 5th, with races from Tokyo City Keiba, Oi Racecourse.

The Japan National Association of Racing is Sky Racing World’s exclusive partner in distributing the weekly simulcasts every Sunday through Thursday night. At commencement, racing will be offered from three tracks: Tokyo City Keiba, Funabashi and Kawasaki, with Sunday night’s first post at 1:30 am ET (i.e. early Monday morning). All tracks and races will be conducted on a dirt surface.

Audiences will now be afforded access to an additional range of quality Japanese racing events, including the Tokyo Sprint (Listed) on opening night and the G1 Japan Dirt Derby from Tokyo City Keiba on July 7th. A familiar range of betting types will be available, including: Win, Place, Exacta, Trifecta, Superfecta, Pick 3, and Pick 4.

The Japanese offering is the latest addition to Sky Racing World’s extensive catalog of thoroughbred simulcasting, which includes racing from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Korea and Singapore. By expanding their product and further complementing US-based offerings, the distributor continues to cement its status as a leading provider of world-class horse racing.

David Haslett, President and CEO at Sky Racing World, said: “We have been working together with Japan NAR to launch the simulcast of their Japanese racing product into North America for some time. It is pleasing to be able to introduce this quality entertainment offering, especially in these times when audiences have seen their usual sports entertainment offerings reduced. We have recently experienced the temporary cancellations of our racing simulcasts from New Zealand, South Africa and Korea due to coronavirus.”

Haslett added: “The launch of Japanese simulcasting is another important step in our growth as a leading provider of international horse-racing competition and we’re very proud to distribute this high-quality product on their behalf.”

Races are available to live-stream and wager at all ADW platforms and skyracingworld.com. Fans can also get free access to past performances at skyracingworld.com.
