United Kingdom: Greyhounds coverage gets daytime boost with RPGTV Ted Menmuir, SBC News · January 26, 2021 at 8:45 pm Greyhound racing will significantly increase its UK coverage, as the Racing Post’s dedicated ‘RPGTV’ channel will make its first daytime broadcast on Saturday 6 February. RPGTV will broadcast a full day of greyhound races, starting with coverage of the Ladbrokes ‘Golden Jacket’ at Crayford Park, followed by the full evening schedule of racing of the Shelbourne Gold Cup. Ladbrokes Golden Jacket has been a Saturday morning staple at Crayford Park (Dartford), for over 30 years having first been staged at Harringay during the 1970s when it sporadically featured as a horse-racing substitute on ITV. Following a four-year flirtation with an evening schedule which ended in 2019, Ladbrokes Golden Jacket returns as a morning event recognised as ‘the most valuable off-course betting competition’ for UK greyhounds. RPGTV coverage has been restricted to the first round only in previous years but the whole competition will now be covered in its entirety on three consecutive Saturday mornings, February 6, 13 and 20.
