Champions Show Premieres On TVN
The world premiere of "Champions of Racing" will screen on TVN tonight. The new series, hosted by Peter Donegan, focuses on world racing's most famous names and events, taking "an inside look at the courage, skill and sheer brilliance of the sport's finest competitors, past and present." Episode 1 features globe-trotting superstar jockey Cristophe Soumillon, & profiles brilliant, but ultimately ill-fated, Godolphin performer Dubai Millennium. Also covered is the "Belmont" curse which examines how, since Affirmed won the US Triple Crown for 3YOs in 1978, 11 horses have won the 1st 2 legs only to fail in the Belmont Stakes in New York. The full schedule can be found on TVN's website.
