The Victorian racing industry has signed a landmark agreement with online bookmaker Sportsbet to stream live Victorian thoroughbred racing through the Racing Live service, reports racing.com. Sportsbet customers will have access to live Victorian races as well as race replays up until midnight on the day of the race under the non-exclusive agreement. The service is available on Sportsbet's website and will be available on its app in the next month. Racing Victoria CEO Bernard Saundry said that RV had been working closely with Country Racing Victoria and the Metro Clubs – Victoria Racing Club, Melbourne Racing Club and Moonee Valley Racing Club – to secure rights agreements which provide enhanced experiences for Victorian racing fans. "We are pleased to partner with Sportsbet in an agreement which will support a broader distribution of Victorian thoroughbred racing," Saundry said. Saundry said discussions with other online wagering operators as well as with Tabcorp were continuing.
