2022 Broadcast Beamed to Standardbred Viewers
11 February 2022
As anticipation builds for NZB Standardbred’s 2022 National Yearling Sale, viewers from around the globe can look forward to another high quality sale broadcast over the duration of the four day event.
Following last year’s format, enriched content will be provided for standardbred enthusiasts, with a number of key sponsors jumping on board to support the 2022 Auckland and Christchurch selling sessions.
Robert Dunn Harness Racing, Breckon Farms, Woodlands Stud and Harness Racing New Zealand will support the coverage of the NZB Standardbred yearling sale sessions, bringing in all the action from the sale rings at Karaka and Canterbury Agricultural Park.
With the addition of presenters Michael Guerin and Greg O’Connor bringing daily Preview and Review shows, as well as key sale highlights and interviews, viewers can be assured they will not miss any of the live sale action.
From Sunday 13 February through until the conclusion of selling on Wednesday 16 February, the sale will be broadcast live to viewers on Freeview Channel 200, streamed on nzbstandardbred.co.nz and on NZB Standardbred’s facebook page.
Due to New Zealand moving to the Red Alert Level of the COVID-19 Traffic Light System, NZB Standardbred made the decision to cancel this year’s Parade of Trotters and Pacers on Saturday 12 February, as well as the Parades of Trotters and Pacers held on each day of selling at the Christchurch session from Monday 14 to Wednesday 16 February.
