The article reports on the partnership between HorseRacing TV and Churchill Downs Inc. (CDI) involving the Kentucky Derby, the thoroughbred racing's biggest event in the U.S. The deal gains HRTV exclusive rights to deliver the track's television when the new Churchill season opens in April 2007 as well as to three CDI-owned tracks in 2008. According to Christiansen Capital Advisors' chair Eugene Christiansen, CDI's shift is disadvantageous for TVG and favorable for HRTV.
