RSN announces new programs as it gears up for Spring Racing Carnival
With Spring just over a week away, RSN Racing & Sport is launching a range of new programs.
As the station transitions out of the AFL season, Andrew Bensley will host Spring Breakfast between 6-8.30am from Monday October 9.
Contributors will include the TAB’s Jaimee Rogers – who’ll have daily updates across all the Victorian Spring Carnival racing – as well as Maree McEwan, Jemma Cutting from Inglis, Jayne Ivil and Ben Asgari from Racing.com plus plenty of Spring newsmakers.
The TAB will be an integral part of RSN’s Spring coverage, with the latest markets plus exclusive reports on wagering activity, right across the carnival.
Damien Oliver – arguably the greatest Australian jockey of all-time – will have a weekly slot on RSN’s flagship program Racing Pulse, providing unrivalled analysis and insights.
Also joining host Michael Felgate is multiple Group 1-winning former jockey Steven Arnold, as well as mounting yard expert Lizzie Jelfs.
Commencing Memsie Stakes Day (Saturday September 2) at Caulfield, RSN will ramp up its raceday coverage.
A new addition to the Spring the team, James Winks – a retired five-time Group 1-winning jockey – will be positioned at the barriers ahead of each race to provide important last-minute information.
Starting Sunday October 8, Sunday Brunch hits the airwaves between 9am and 12pm with Matt Stewart and speaking to the newsmakers. From 9 to 10am there’ll be analysis with Warren Huntly and Steven Arnold along with feature interviews.
From 10am, Matt will look to the feature races ahead, including the all-important Country Cups where Kate Watts from Racing.com will feature.
RSN says “Thanks to McDonald’s and the TAB, we hope the loyal audience to RSN Racing and Sport enjoys the wide array of programs to be unleashed.”
