TVG and Lone Star Park have announced an agreement under which the racing television network will air the Dallas, Texas-area track’s 2011 spring Thoroughbred meet that begins April 14 and runs through July 10.

“We’re excited to have signed an agreement with TVG on a non-exclusive basis,“ said Lone Star Park president and general manager Drew Shubeck. “Our relationship with TVG will help us broaden our signal distribution and drive handle.”

Lone Star Park’s 52-day meet will run four days a week every Thursday and Friday at 6:35 p.m. (except Thursday, June 2 and Thursday, July 7 when there will be no live racing), and Saturday and Sunday at 1:35 p.m. starting on April 14.  The Lone Star Million Day program on Memorial Day will start at 1:35 p.m. and special twilight programs with post-race holiday fireworks on Sunday, July 3 and Monday, July 4 (Lone Stars & Stripes Fireworks Celebration) will commence at 5 p.m.
