Sky Racing World announces merger of the US and Argentinian wagering pools

6 January 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Sky Racing World is excited to announce a substantial boost to its content portfolio of International Racing by facilitating the International commingling of wagering pools with host pools in Argentina on racing at Palermo Racetrack, Buenos Aires. On Monday, 3 January, the commingling of pools was made available for the first time ever on Argentinian horse racing from the Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo for the American, Canadian, Caribbean and other International markets. PGI (owned by Tabcorp) is the exclusive International Commingling hub for connecting into Palermo pools.

Simulcast is now available for all Palermo meetings on the SRW website, ADW websites, and the SRW App. The races will take place every Monday, including a mix of races on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday with first post at approximately 3 PM EST. The weekend dates change monthly and you can see the full calendar here.

This exciting news is all possible thanks to the work done by the Board and Management of Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo and their work with the government to pass legislation that allows international commingling. The Hipódromo Argentino de Palermo is home to some time-honored events, like the Estrellas Classic, Gran Premio Selección and the Gran Premio Nacional (The Argentine Derby) which started back in 1884.

American and Argentinian breeding have a rich connection that goes back many years. A great example of this is Pure Prize, a Grade 2 winner who sired Grade 1 performers in both countries. In total, Pure Prize has sired 13 crops of racing age and combined progeny earnings of nearly $75 million. He’s not alone, as other great stallions Blue Prize and Hi Happy were bred in Argentina before moving north to win major races there. More recently, we saw Gouverneur Morris move over to Argentina when sold, after being a hopeful for the 2020 Kentucky Derby.

All races are live-streamed on the new Sky Racing World App, skyracingworld.com and major ADW platforms. Fans can also get free access to past performances and picks at skyracingworld.com.

Sky Racing World is a subsidiary of Tabcorp, Australia’s biggest wagering and entertainment company. It retains the exclusive rights to distribute live racing from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, South Korea, Singapore, and Japan (NAR) to territories across the Americas and the Caribbean. It also remains the leading digital source for premium tipping content from the Southern Hemisphere’s leading race markets and live video broadcasts.
