Sky Racing Wold, a subsidiary of Australian online betting operator Tarbcorp, is set to offer the opportunity to wager on Australian Harness Racing to North American gamblers. The wagering operator’s advanced deposit wagering partners will be simultaneously broadcasting Australian harness racing every Sunday and Monday night. From the 7th of October, North American bettors will be able to wager on Australian Harness Racing.
How Australian Harness Racing Became Popular in America
Lazarus, the Australian Harness Racing champion horse, won in his American Debut at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino in August this year. The horse known as the Wonder from Down Under, enthralled US audiences and increased the demand for Australian harness racing. Since then North American gamblers are scrambling to get in the horse racing betting action from down under.
Australian Harness Racing Simulcasting
Sky Racing World will partner with its North American advanced deposit wagering (ADW) partners to simulcast Australia’s biggest horse races. Races will include those run in South Australia, Victoria and NSW. There are over 70 ADW partners that will be simulcasting the races including Xpressbet, Bet America, WatchandWager and TwinSpires just to mention a few.
This is an exciting progression for the Australian gambling industry, more so for Sky Racing World itself. The company’s President and CEO, David Haslett, confirmed this when he said: “US harness racing has been available in Australia for several years, so we’re excited to extend the two markets’ relationship by bringing the best Australian harness racing to North America, where interest is just as strong. Harness racing complements our core Australian thoroughbred racing product, which continues to hold the international spotlight following the history-making performances of horses like Winx.”
Skyworld also simulcasts, through its various partners, Australian Harness Racing to over 425 different horse wagering operators not only in USA but in Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean as well.
