Matt Carothers will conduct a handicapping seminar and offer betting tips.

 Tampa Bay Downs and TVG  will recognize TVG Tampa Bay area account holders by staging the inaugural “TVG Fan Appreciation Day at Tampa Bay Downs” April 9 at the Florida race track. April 9 is Florida Cup Day at Tampa Bay Downs, featuring six stakes for Florida-breds.

As part of the event, all TVG account holders living within 90 miles of Tampa Bay Downs will be invited to attend a free day of racing at the track, including a complimentary lunch and program, a special gift and a $10 wagering voucher. In addition, those attending will meet TVG analyst and on-air personality Matt Carothers, who will conduct a handicapping seminar and offer tips on that day’s racing program.

“We have a strong and loyal following in the Tampa Bay area and we wanted to show our appreciation to them,” said Don Scott, TVG vice president of marketing. “We are excited to be partnering with Tampa Bay Downs on this program, which also recognizes the importance we place on our track partners.”
