Fraser Downs is now bringing bettors and fans racing information from the backstretch each race card.
BC Standardbred's executive director, David Aldred is interviewing trainers and drivers each week with telephoto broadcasting the backstrectch interviews between races at Fraser Downs.
Last weekend the "Backstretch Minute" featured Bill Davis on Friday night speaking about his stable's chances including (Red Star Poppy, Golden Seven, Beggars Opera and Outlawsong N Dance who were all winners),on Saturday Aldred's guest was Carl Sibiga and on Sunday Serge Masse was featured.
The BCSA and Fraser Downs hope the Backstretch Minute initiative will allow fans to get to know the trainers and drivers on a personable level rather than just being a name in the race program.
The interviews were well received at the debut telecast last week.
The BSCA has also added race replays to their website. This week's feature is recent Ontario invader Golden Seven who won his BC debut for local owner Niele Jiwan Friday night. To watch, simply click below.
