The line-up for the coverage of the TAB.COM.AU Inter Dominion Grand Final on Channel 9’s Wide World of Sport has been finalised.
The panel will be spearheaded by popular sports journalist and presenter Yvonne Sampson who is a self confessed “horse lover”.
She will be joined by fellow station star Emma Freedman along with industry experts Adam Hamilton and Greg Radley.
Harness Racing NSW CEO Sam Nati said: “It’s exciting to have our greatest race showcased nationally on free-to-air television again in 2014. The broadcast of the Qualifying Heats as a dedicated package on Sky and the Grand Final on Channel 9 are very important to the objectives we set-out to achieve during our three-year tender”.
The one-hour programme commences at 3pm (AEDT) on Sunday 2 March and will include live coverage of the Chariots of Fire and Inter Dominion Grand Final in addition to a feature colour story.
“They are looking at doing the human interest piece on James Rattray and Beautide, but of course he still has to make it through to the Grand Final”, Nati said.
Beautide is currently the Championship favourite and will start long odds on in Saturday night’s second Inter Dominion Qualifying Heat at 8.30 (AEDT).
