Sky Sports is to launch a dedicated horse racing channel. Last year, the broadcaster launched channels dedicated to Premiership football, football, cricket, Formula One and golf.

Sky Sports Racing will replace At The Races and will be available to every Sky TV customer in the UK and Ireland at no extra cost.

The high definition channel will offer live racing from over 650 UK fixtures, plus exclusive international race meetings.

It will launch next year.

Chester Race Company has signed a deal to show live racing from Chester and Bangor-On-Dee on Sky Sports Racing from March 2019. These races will include the prestigious Boodles May Festival.

\"We\'ve seen a great reaction from our customers to launching dedicated sports channels and this takes us to another level,\" said Barney Francis, Sky Sports managing director. \"Horse racing is a massive sport that Sky has been involved in for two decades, now we will have a channel to give our customers more of what they love every day. Adding Chester and Bangor-on-Dee is fantastic news and we look forward to making Sky Sports Racing a new home for racing fans.\"
