TVG Launches Stakes Recap Show; The Works to Return

TVG will unveil a new Sportscenter-type stakes recap show Sunday, April 7 at 9 p.m. Eastern Time. The weekly program will feature replays of the weekend's stakes action, with analysis of the races. Included in the hour will be previews of the following week's stakes races, breeding reports, and previews of where prominent horses will run next. TVG plans to produce the show at least through October 27.

In addition, TVG programming head Tony Allevato said that The Works, TVG's popular coverage of Kentucky Derby workouts in the two weeks leading up to big race, will "definitely return" in late April "unless something changes dramatically." TVG had previously indicated that the show might not be back for this year's Derby.

TVG is also launching a couple of new shows based in Southern California. One, called The Quarter, will feature Quarter Horse racing from Los Alamitos. A new show is also being planned live from Hollywood Park when that track opens later this month.
