The global horseracing spotlight will be firmly on the Bahrain International Trophy tomorrow (Friday, November 19), with the Kingdom’s showpiece race attracting unprecedented television interest.

The £500,000 contest has attracted 14 runners from six countries including four-time Group 1 winner, Barney Roy, trained by arguably the world’s best trainer right now, Charlie Appleby. The race, which also sees a strong local contingent, is due off at 4pm local time (1pm GMT).

Racecourse Media Group (RMG) and HBA Media, two of the leading horse racing media rights companies, working with the Rashid Equestrian and Horseracing Club (REHC) in Bahrain, have secured widespread global coverage of the event which will be available to view in 130 countries.

Broadcasters taking live coverage include Fox Sports in the US, ESPN in Latin America and Caribbean, and SuperSport in Africa.

In addition to ESPN, the Caribbean will be served by SportsMax and 17 countries in the Middle East and North Africa will have access to the race through the Dubai Racing Channel, Yas TV and Bahrain TV, while Saudi TV will show a recording, as will the Green Channel and Tellytrack to its Japanese and South African audiences.

Live coverage will be taken by RMG’s TV channel, Racing TV, plus Sky Sports Racing, in the UK and Ireland, while ITV, the UK’s biggest commercial broadcaster, will feature the race in its Saturday programming.

Other broadcasters taking live coverage in Europe include NENT (the Nordics), Match (Russia), SilkNet (Georgia) and Equidia (France). 

RMG is also delighted to be working with Timeline TV in co-producing the live one-hour world feed programme.

Executive Director at the Rashid Equestrian & Horseracing Club, Sheikh Salman bin Rashid Al Khalifa, said: “For some of the world’s leading broadcasters, such as Fox Sports, ESPN and SuperSport, to devote valuable airtime to the Bahrain International Trophy, in only its third year, is testament to the rapid and unrelenting growth of Bahrain racing on the international sporting calendar. We are delighted with the interest.”

Seb Vance, Director of Communications and International TV Distribution at RMG, said: “It is a great honour to be working with the Rashid Equestrian and Horseracing Club again. Both RMG and HBA couldn’t be happier with the take-up from international broadcasters. The race is bursting with quality, and we look forward to conveying all the colour and excitement from Sakhir Racecourse, in a special one-hour world feed programme, which RMG is co-producing with Timeline TV.”

Malta Week, the largest iGaming event in the world in 2022, was hosted by SiGMA Group last week. The event was a great success. More than 25,000 attendees, 1000 sponsors and exhibitors, 400 speakers, 300 affiliates, 400 companies and 100 influencers were there for the event.

These three days have been jam-packed with informative panels and keynotes, networking activities and an ever-expanding industry-setting show floor.

The Conference

SiGMA Conference has brought together policymakers, thought leaders, influencers and C-Suite executives from the global gaming and affiliation space with audience.

In his keynote speech, Finance Minister Javier Fransisco Antonio Silvania stated that his presence at the conference demonstrates Curaçao’s determination to become a “major player in the online gambling business.” Silvania is in charge of modernising the Dutch-Caribbean island’s gambling industry to ensure effective regulation and monitoring. The new restrictions are set to go into action in 2Q23.

The Expo

The expo floor included a carefully chosen showcase of market-leading products and services. This high-energy exposition gave delegates the opportunity to target the industry on a worldwide scale and target the particular niche. It also provided a direct path to some of the top brands in the industry, making it a great venue for networking and brand promotion.

Ministers and government entities

During the week, government entities, ministers, and even the Prime Minister of Malta came to SiGMA Europe. When he spoke to the delegates, Prime Minister Hon. Robert Abela said: “Events such as SiGMA celebrate the spirit of Malta’s economic vision and Malta’s entrepreneurial drive. Eman and his team are proof of this, and I commend their can-do attitude. By working together, we will be able to ensure more successful years of this already thriving gaming industry.”

He also added that this is the government’s top priority. “This is an industry which we are very, very proud of. Malta is the home of choice for over 300 gaming firms providing over 10,000 gaming-related job opportunities. In addition, many of the companies are listed on the major stock exchanges boasting a superior level of governance”.

Carl Brincat, CEO of the MGA, stated on a panel on the first day of SiGMA Europe that the regulator has learned that it must lay the framework before implementing innovative measures.
