Statement from Breeders' Cup on Distribution Channels for the 2016 World Championships:
“The 2016 Breeders' Cup World Championships, November 4-5, will be televised live on NBC, NBCSN and streamed live on Breederscup.com and on various ADW websites.”
“In addition, TVG will televise the six undercard races on Friday and the three undercard races on Saturday at Santa Anita Park.”
A Paulick Report article on Tuesday indicated a marketing agreement between Breeders' Cup and TwinSpires – making the advance deposit wagering company the official wagering partner of the Breeders' Cup – effectively blocked TVG from televising the undercard races from Santa Anita. Officials worked out a deal over the last 24 hours allowing TVG to cover the undercard races. However, TVG personnel will not be on-site at Santa Anita as they are throughout the year.
TVG made an on-air announcement regarding the situation earlier today.
