HRTV Offers Live Coverage of “Delta Jackpot Night” This Friday


Vinton, LA, Dec. 2 -- HRTV (R) will once again provide complete live coverage of "Delta Jackpot Night" from Delta Downs on Friday, Dec. 4.

Annually one of the biggest racing days in Louisiana, "Delta Jackpot Night" features six stakes races with a combined purse of $1.6 million. The outstanding night of racing is topped by a pair of 2-year-old races -- the Grade 3, $750,000 Delta Jackpot (at 1 1/16 miles), and the Gr. 3, $500,000 Delta Princess (one mile), powered by Youbet.com.


Post time for the stakes-filled card is 5:40 p.m. CT.

HRTV's in-studio hosts and analysts -- Laffit Pincay, III, Jeff Siegel, Peter Lurie and Zoe Cadman -- will provide in-depth analysis and commentary throughout the Delta Downs card. The network's coverage will be supplemented by the onsite presence of Caton Bredar, who will supply interviews and late-breaking news, from trackside.

In addition, HRTV's new weekly handicapping show, "The Edge," which normally airs on Friday evenings, will be moved to Thursday this week (7:30 p.m. CT) and devote its 30-minute format to an informative, detailed analysis of "Delta Jackpot Night's" Pick 4, which carries a $100,000 guaranteed payout. (The Pick 4, which starts with race six, commences at 8:04 p.m. CT.)

The show will be co-hosted by Aaron Vercruysse and Joanne Jones. Racing fans may also view "The Edge" online, via http://www.hrtv.com, beginning at 7 a.m. ET on Friday.
