Free To Air Boost For Brisbane Winter Carnival
The Brisbane Racing Club has secured a deal with Channel 7 to air the four key race days of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, reports AAP. Club chairman Alan Bell advised it’s the first time that the BRC will have all four meetings broadcast. They are: Doomben 10,000 Day (11 May), Kirin Stakes Day (25 May) Queensland Oaks Day (1 June) and Stradbroke Handicap Day (8 June), which will be screened for a minimum two and a half hours on each of the days. Racing Queensland was pivotal to the agreement due to its telecast arrangement with the broadcaster, and Tabcorp will have “exclusive wagering rights with the Seven Network for the coverage”.
