US dispute over export of racing product

The US race track operator Churchill Downs is at odds with one of its business partners, TVG of California over the export of its racing product to the UK.

While Churchills Downs teamed up with fellow track operator Maga and Racing UK, the pay TV channel to broadcast its product to the UK, the TV and account wagering operator TVG, which also distributes Churchill Downs' images in the US, has teamed up with British rival TV At The Races.

Churchill Downs started a legal action, claiming that TVG violates sub-licensing rights.
