ROYAL ASCOT MEET ON TV

Edited Press Release — FanDuel TV will bring the pinnacle of international racing into the homes of fans across the country from Tuesday, June 18 through Saturday, June 22 with live, on-site coverage of the entire meet from Royal Ascot.

FanDuel TV’s international expert Scott Hazelton will be joined by the UK-based broadcasters Nick Luck and Jess Stafford to provide exclusive interviews alongside analysis and insights throughout the star-studded week of horse racing. The coverage will begin at 9:00 a.m. ET and first post is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. ET daily.

Luck is a nine-time horse racing broadcaster of the year in the UK who has covered every major racing event in his native England. Stafford received the Emerging Talent Award in 2021 from Horserace Writers and Photographers Association in the UK and has become a staple on FanDuel TV for coverage of international events throughout the year.

“Once again, we are looking forward to providing full coverage of one of the premier international race meets of the year,” said Kevin Grigsby, FanDuel TV executive producer. “Royal Ascot is always special on its own, and with increasing participation from US-based connections and key qualifying races for the Breeders’ Cup, this is a must-watch event for racing fans.”

The highlights of the prestigious meet include four Breeders’ Cup Challenge Races – the Queen Anne Stakes, the Prince of Wales’s Stakes, the Norfolk Stakes and the King Charles III Stakes. The winners of these races will earn automatic berths into the FanDuel Mile, the Turf, the Juvenile Turf Sprint and the Turf Sprint, respectively.

The races at Royal Ascot will feature international stars from across the globe as well as some familiar names and faces to American audiences including 2023 Breeders’ Cup champions Auguste Rodin (Turf), Inspiral (Filly and Mare Turf), Big Evs (Turf Sprint) and Unquestionable (Juvenile Turf) as well as contenders from US-based connections including Wesley Ward, John Sadler and Jose D’Angelo.
