Buckle Up Wes carries Tassie hopes

RACING fans will be able to watch an uninterrupted coverage of the $250,000 Golden Easter Egg in Sydney tonight when star Tasmanian greyhound Buckle Up Wes will start a short-priced favourite.

Sky Racing has devoted its Sky2 channel to coverage of the group 1 event at Wentworth Park, with David Carlson, Simone Fisher, Tim Newbold and Mark Duclos presenting detailed race analysis and trainer interviews.

Sky Racing's chief operating officer Brendan Parnell said he was pleased that Sky2 could provide increased exposure to the Golden Easter Egg meeting, as it was celebrating its 25th anniversary.

The live broadcast starts at 6.30pm with the big race scheduled for 9.45pm.

Buckle Up Wes, trained by Ted Medhurst for Devonport owners Robyn Johnson and Sharon Sutton, has drawn the coveted inside box and remains a $1.90 favourite with Tattsbet fixed-odds.
