Sky Racing World Begins Italian Racing Simulcasts – Horse Racing News


Racing at Ippodromo Snai San Siro in Milan, Italy

Sky Racing World on Friday, March 24, begins simulcast distribution of Italian racing across North America with live harness racing action from Milan. This historic moment also benefits from the commingling of pari-mutuel wagering B-pools, facilitated by Sky Racing World, via Premier Gateway International (PGI).

As previously announced, Sky Racing World and Epiqa (part of the Snaitech Group) have entered into a multi-faceted agreement to distribute Italian racing around the world. The offering includes Thoroughbred and Harness racing from 11 racetracks around Italy, including the world renowned, and Snaitech Group owned, Ippodromo Snai San Siro in Milan. The prestigious spring Thoroughbred season in Milan runs April-July with two cards per week typical.

The racetracks for simulcast are: Florence (harness and Thoroughbreds), Follonica (harness and Thoroughbreds), Livorno (Thoroughbreds), Milan (harness and Thoroughbreds), Montecatini (harness), Sassari (Thoroughbreds), Albenga (harness), Chilivani (Thoroughbreds), Padova (harness), Taranto (harness) and Foggia (harness).

The Italian Thoroughbred racing industry has a storied history with legendary horses like Falbrav winning the Gran Premio di Milano in Italy as well as Group 1 races in Japan, France, the United Kingdom and Hong Kong. The most famous Italian racing export of modern times is undoubtedly the Milan-born jockey Frankie Dettori who has thrilled racing fans all over the globe.

In North America, all races will be live-streamed each morning on the new Sky Racing World App, and major ADW platforms. Sky Racing World has partnered with Racing and Sports to develop and deliver customized past performances, race data, tipping guides and runner comments. Fans can also get free access to past performances at U.S. players will be able to access the pari-mutuel wagering pools via Sky Racing World’s Advance-Deposit Wagering (ADW) partners.
