I'm in total agreement with dublino's post (and others who chimed in) - Thanks TJ for dependably 'feeding the fire' of all the racing fans/Derby Addicts who are active and/or lurking on this board.

On a far different note - indulge me in a bit of a rant here:
Would that the so-called "leaders" of this sport were ever as keenly aware/sportsmanlike as TJ/my fellow Pedigree Query posters in their efforts to make the thrill/fun of horseracing more readily accessible/enjoyable. These sport/horse racing industry leaders of today seem inclined to find every manner in which to separate the lifelong fan from participating in this grand day of racing in US, raising barriers to observing and enjoying the day of Derby racing. This latest tiff between the TVG/HRTV camps making it impossible for me (and over a Million+ other Houstonians who are U-verse clients) to watch the card at Churchill at home while having to listen to the HRTV commentators talk about the race(s) and then show it as late video feed is torture for this 'fan'.

Hi Jellac

I agree. However, I could be wrong but I thought the problem was with TVG and the group that owns Churchill Downs. I believe the contract was between the Churchill Downs entity and HRTV and TVG (which now owns HRTV) wasn't able to come to an agreement to show Churchill Downs, Arlington, Fair Grounds etc.

My own pet peeve is the DRF restricting so much news content that it's not worth visiting their website.

Hi jellac and thanks. I agree with you, they don't do much to promote the sport or to make it easy for us. In order to get good coverage of the sport they want you to pay for it. No one covers horse racing in depth, without having you pay for it....DRF is the biggest offender.
Concerning watching the races, all the races are being telecast currently on NBC Sports channel. I think it is a basic cable channel. At 4PM eastern, they will be telecast over the standart NBC channel. TJ
