GOOD-OLD-DAYS ARE GONE
There are many racing people who insist we go back a few decades to save the sport, but that is like opening a neighborhood book store. Amazon would put it out of business in a heartbeat. For the racing industry to survive, we must take the tracks worldwide via the new invention called the Internet. Rather than having a few old timers who live near the track hanging out at the fence, we must create millions of fans who live miles from the track. The “good-old-days, are the good old days.” They came and went.
Today, people place a lot of value on their time. Unlike the good-old-days, many horse fans do not want to spend the time and money to endure multiple miles of road rage to see a horse race. Nor do they want to spend time finding a parking place and clean seat. No more $4.00 hot dogs on stale buns, and $5.00 beers in a wax cup. Standing in line to place a wager is historic. Unlike horsemen, many fans might not like the smell of DMSO and manure. We MUST cater to the folks who will keep harness racing going – not the fifty who like to gather at the fence and wait 20 minutes to see 2 minutes of action.
Watching races worldwide (ask Cammie Haughton) from the comfort of one’s home is the future of harness racing. Many fractional ownership people are partners in multiple horses that race in both the US and Canada – sometimes at the same time. Thanks to the Internet, owners can now watch their horses at the Meadowlands, and then flip to see another at Yonkers. Of course, let us not forget the horse at Woodbine – all in the same night. That, my friend would necessitate a lot of driving to see three races. Are you beginning to get the picture?
The Czar wants desperately for horse owners to enjoy their experiences and not be frustrated by details (the Devil is in the details), so he has gone to great lengths reviewing websites that objectively review the hundreds of gambling sites to make sure you enjoy your online gambling experience. It is similar to what someone does who reviews restaurants for the consumer.
The Czar assumes your primary interest is wagering on Standardbred races, but he also realistically knows some folks enjoy other types of wagering. Therefore, he has included a few websites that provide you with detailed information to assist you in choosing the site right for you. They are, as follows:

“Finding the Right Online Racebook for You. The purpose of the online racebook reviews located here are to help you study the different racebooks available and determine the best places to bet on horses. Our main objective is using our vast experience in the online racebook industry and knowledge of the various operators to help make your decision easier, and give you the most accurate information available. While some racebooks offer terrific bonuses, others have great rebates and cash back on your wagers. The best online racebooks will provide even more customer service perks and other horse racing benefits as additional considerations. Your top priority may be making sure the racebook pays winners quickly or provides stats, articles and tutorials for beginner players to help you learn more about the sport and beat the horses. Whatever the case might be, our reviews dig into the history and evolution of the various racebooks and give our recommendations on which ones are reputable and trustworthy.
With the horse racing industry so disjointed, it’s important to have at least one or two outlets for your horse betting, so that you can bet on any track at any time. Whatever you are looking for in an online racebook, do not settle for anything less than one that caters exactly to your needs and provides you with all the features you require as a horse bettor. Also, do not rush to make what could be a costly decision you may later regret. Instead, take your time and make sure all of your questions are answered by the racebook’s customer service department if needed. It definitely pays to shop around in order to make the right decision, so read online racebook reviews, talk with other horse bettors and visit the sites themselves before deciding for yourself which is the best online racebook for you.”

tvg.com – TVG Network (“TVG” is an initialism for its official name Television Games Network) is an online horse and greyhound racing betting business and American sports-oriented digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by FanDuel Group, the U.S. division of Paddy Power Betfair.
The channel was launched on July 14, 1999, and was founded by the United Video Satellite Group, the then-owners of the TV Guide Network (now Pop) and TV Guide magazine (from which the “TVG” initials were partially taken). On October 5, 1999, Gemstar International Group Ltd. purchased United Video Satellite Group.
In late February 2007, TVG ended its longtime affiliation with Churchill Downs Incorporated. On May 2, 2008, Gemstar-TV Guide was acquired by Macrovision (now Rovi Corporation) for $2.8 billion. Macrovision, which purchased Gemstar-TV Guide mostly to boost the value of its lucrative VCR Plus+ and electronic program guide patents, later stated that it was considering a sale of TVG, TV Guide Network and the TV Guide print edition’s namesake to other parties. In late 2008, Macrovision sold TVG to Betfair for $50 million in cash consideration. The deal was consummated on January 27, 2009, separating the channel from the company which acquired its founding owner in 2007.
In February 2015, Betfair acquired TVG’s sole competitor, HRTV, and began to consolidate it into TVG’s facilities. The network was re-branded as a sister network, TVG2, in October 2015.
Dedicated to horse racing and greyhound racing, in New Jersey it operates the 4NJBets platform on behalf of the state of New Jersey and its racing industry.

The network also broadcasts races from various tracks in Australia, United Kingdom, Ireland, and Japan.
