December 9, 2014 (Washington, PA) – Leading online wagering provider, Xpressbet, is excited to once again partner with HRTV to bring live on-site coverage from Gulfstream Park’s current Championship Meet. Xpressbet Gulfstream Park Xtra, hosted by Caton Bredar, provides horseplayers with exclusive information daily coverage from the track, including interviews with the industry’s top trainers, jockeys and owners. Additionally, it features race insights from top local and industry handicappers, as well as on-site commentary as the horses parade and warm up on the racetrack. This is the second consecutive year in which HRTV will be live at Gulfstream Park.
