New America’s Best Racing and Breeders’ Cup Live-Streaming Show Debuts Saturday for HaskellPop Culture
America’s Best Racing (ABR), a multimedia fan development and awareness-building platform designed to increase the profile and visibility of North America’s best Thoroughbred racing events, and the Breeders’ Cup, one of Thoroughbred horse racing’s most prestigious international events, announced a new live-show series titled #BCLive: Breeders’ Cup Live! The series, which will feature six individual 90-minute live raceday shows on Breeders’ Cup Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube channels and cross-posted on ABR’s social media channels, will provide fans and bettors with an immersive second-screen experience that complements NBC Sports’ national coverage of the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series with a focus on the road to the Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic.
“We’re excited to enhance our ABR partnership with the Breeders’ Cup by offering fans and sports bettors an immersive second-screen experience that will highlight select Challenge Series races and profile an array of gambling opportunities,” said Stephen B. Panus, president of TJC Media Ventures Inc. “As we strive to attract and immerse the younger generation into our sport, the second-screen Breeders’ Cup Live! show will seek to personalize and optimize the television experience, while also allowing for social media integration across both the Breeders’ Cup’s and America’s Best Racing’s social channels.”
Longtime ABR correspondent and handicapper Dan Tordjman will host Breeders’ Cup Live! alongside ESPN Radio’s Bram Weinstein, who’s the voice of ABR’s national radio show and podcast “The Winner’s Circle” on SB Nation Radio and of InstaBram. Joining the host lineup for the kickoff TVG.com Haskell Stakes edition this Saturday, July 18, at 4:30 p.m. E.T., will be “Future Stars Forecast” analyst and personality Ren Carothers. She will also join Tordjman as the co-host for the second Breeders’ Cup Live! show scheduled for Aug. 1, Whitney Stakes day, at Saratoga Race Course.
During all of the Breeders’ Cup Live! shows scheduled for 2020, viewers will see and hear from other leading handicappers and racing personalities. Fans and bettors are encouraged to engage with the show on social media by using the hashtag #BCLive. Show hosts and guests will respond to fan questions, offering insights into betting the races from home.
