Seven’s live coverage of Australia’s major horse races starts this Saturday from Caulfield Racecourse with Orr Stakes day on 7TWO from 12.30pm.
Hosted by Hamish McLachlan with expert commentary from former champion jockey and winner of 15 Group 1 races Simon Marshall, all eyes will be on Caulfield Guineas winner All Too Hard and the undefeated Callanish as they aim to take out the Group 1 weight-for-age C.F. Orr Stakes, which Black Caviar won last year.
“Saturday’s Orr Stakes kick starts a big year of live horse racing on Seven and we look forward to taking racing to a bigger and broader audience,” said Seven’s Head of Sport Saul Shtein.
Coverage of the Orr Stakes is the first under the new broadcast rights agreement announced in January in which Seven will telecast all major Australian horse racing live on Channel 7 or 7TWO.
Throughout the year Seven will broadcast the Melbourne Cup Carnival, BMW Sydney Racing Carnival including the Golden Slipper, and the Spring Racing Carnival including the Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate in Melbourne.
LIVE coverage of the Orr Stakes from Caulfield starts from 12.30pm Queensland time on 7TWO
