New Zealand’s only television show dedicated to news and reviews of the thoroughbred industry returns on Monday.
Weigh In will screen live at 8pm on Monday nights after a new 30-programme series was commissioned by some of the biggest names in New Zealand racing.
TAB NZ no longer makes racing magazine shows as their mandate has changed to primarily driving turnover to maximise profits to return to the industry.
But the thoroughbred racing industry will now have weekly review shows through the support of those involved in the industry, a family of sponsors put together through the work of David Ellis.
Weigh In will be hosted by Emily Bosson along with regular panellist Michael Guerin but will also see the return to NZ television screens of respected presenter Luke Radich as well as expert panellists and guests.
The show will not only review the week’s best races in New Zealand and Australia but discuss industry news and feature regular segments on developments inside the industry, personality profiles, including club news, major race days and the sales and breeding industries.
Weigh In will also showcase the New Zealand thoroughbred racing industry to Australian viewers through Sky Racing and numerous overseas and domestic platforms.
Weigh In has moved from its previous Sunday morning slot to 8pm every Monday night and the first show of the new season will analyse the Gr.1 Livamol Classic (2040m), Great Northern Day at Ellerslie, A$15 million The Everest (1200m) and the Gr.1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) as well as a detailed look at Breeze Ups day for the upcoming Ready To Run sales at Karaka.
