Launceston gallop meeting heads to Singapore

27 / 08 / 2010 Article by: Editor

SUNDAY’S thoroughbred meeting at The TOTE Racing Centre in Launceston will be broadcast direct to Singapore.

Singapore will wager on the last six races from the Launceston meeting (3-8) and Tasracing’s Peter Staples will deliver runner-by-runner mounting yard reports, late mail and on-course betting shorteners for the Singapore market.

The coverage is for export to Singapore only and not for the domestic market.

This is the first time a Tasmanian Sunday meeting has been exported overseas but if Sunday’s meeting is successful it could lead to Tasmania being included in export packages on a more regular basis.
