RACING POST is delighted to announce the return of live greyhound racing into homes across the UK and Ireland from mid-December, with the launch of a new three-times-a-week programme, Racing Post Greyhound TV.

Hosted by Racing Post, in co-operation with bookmakers Ladbrokes, William Hill, Coral and bet365, plus leading betting exchange Betfair, the programme will be broadcast on Sky digital channel 231 and Freesat channel 402.
Live evening racing will be shown from Hove and Monmore on Thursdays, Romford and Sunderland on Fridays and Crayford and Newcastle every Saturday from 7.15pm to 10.45pm. The programme will be free to view and will also have a webcast presence on racingpost.com and on founders’ websites.
Kevan Moretti, Racing Post’s head of business-to-business services and executive producer for the new programme, commented:
“This is a terrific opportunity to help re-energise greyhoundracing, and help popularise greyhound ownership. We know that greyhound owners love watching their dogs run on Sky and we are very hopeful we can make this imaginative and exciting new initiative work for everyone involved with greyhound racing. The opportunity to promote greyhound racing on Sky Digital in the Racing Post and on the internet should bring some fantastic benefits.”

Bruce Millington, editor of the Racing Post added:
“Apart from Sky’s excellent coverage, armchair greyhound fans have not had a lot to feast on in recent times. I know there will be a healthy appetite for Racing Post Greyhound TV. Dog racing remains one of our core ingredients and we’re delighted to be involved in this exciting new project.”
The programme’s first transmission date will be announced in due course along with the line-up of presenters.
