TVG has reached an agreement with TrackNet Media Group that allows it to offer wagering on racing from Churchill Downs and Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots.

The deal was announced Nov. 1, opening day of the Churchill fall meet. Fair Grounds opens its Thoroughbred meet Nov. 6.

Both tracks are owned by Churchill Downs Inc., a principal in TrackNet Media.

It has been three years since TVG customers have been permitted to wager on the Churchill fall meet and Fair Grounds. Before it formed TrackNet Media and partnered with Magna Entertainment Corp. on HRTV, CDI tracks had exclusive contracts with TVG.

TVG is providing live video streaming from the two tracks. The live television broadcast is shown on HRTV.

TVG earlier this year reached agreement with TrackNet Media that allowed it to offer wagering on the Churchill spring meet.
