Towcester greyhound racing to be broadcasted worldwide

Towcester track to further boost the sport

Towcester’s new greyhound track is expected to open in May 2013, and will be the first to open in Britain since Sittingbourne in 1995. Satellite Information Services (SIS) and Towcester Racecourse today announced a five-year deal which will see greyhound racing from the track broadcast around the globe to a huge audience of punters and race fans.

The course will stage a minimum of three meetings every week, greatly adding to the amount of choice on offer for those who like a flutter on the dogs. The chief executive of Towcester Racecourse, Kevin Ackerman, said: “We are delighted to further enhance our close relationship with SIS, and we look forward to working with them to provide a greyhound product that will be a beacon of quality and excellence, encompassing the very latest in technological advancements".

Faith in the future of dog racing

Mr Ackerman went on to say he strongly believed in the future of greyhound racing, and was looking to establish Towcester Racecourse as the "Premier Greyhound venue in the UK". A new track opening is excellent news for greyhound fans, showing the sport continues to be strong despite the large competition from other forms of gambling available online.
