The featured events to be broadcast on 10 Bold and streamed on 10 play on Saturday nights are:
- Coral Eclipse Meeting, Sandown Park, UK

- Glorious Goodwood, Goodwood, UK
- Ebor Festival, York, UK

10’s head of Sport Matt White said: “This is great news for fans of international racing to have live free-to-air coverage, and an exciting time at 10 Sport as we expand our horse racing portfolio.
“International horses that are aiming for a start in the Lexus Melbourne Cup will be on the world stage, so our viewers can follow the complete story as we build to ‘the race that stops a nation’™.”
