You can read the TVG press release, but not much is elaborated upon. Fortunately I have the inside scoop from Cub Reporter regarding what's in store with everyone's new favorite racing channel - TVG2.
Look, no one reads this blog so disclaimers are not needed, but if one of you is reading this and would like to share it, please do it on the dark web or something. Both Cub Reporter and the big wigs at TVG2 don't want anyone to know these details.
Here's what I got.
The new tagline for the network was hashed out. "We felt it was appropriate to call the new network "the second TVG, that was once HRTV", said an unnamed executive. "We don't want to confuse fans, and ever since Philadelphia Park changed its name to Parx their handle has been getting killed. We ain't going catchy with deuce or deux or dos." she added.
TimeformUS ® figures will be highlighted in each show. "We need to pump the TimeformUS brand" said a source."Hunter jumpers, animal husbandry shows, features on beach racing will all have speed figures," she noted.

New tracks will be featured on the
Fans can expect to see more racing, and less chatter. "This is wholly dependent on how many tracks want to give us all the takeout and TV fees. If there's enough of them it'll be wall to wall racing. If not, well, we have animal husbandry shows with the new TimeformUS ® figures."
It appears, in terms of racing commentary, the second TVG that was once HRTV will be going big tent with new guests. "We want to be interesting and informative. One show we have planned - sponsored by the Thoroughbred Owners of California - will be a set of seminars about how much it costs rich people to buy yearlings and why horseplayers need to pay more for purses through higher takeouts.", said my source.
Other than the above, we hear the programming and excellence we expect from TVG1 to be ported over to TVG2. "We might be a bit edgier, like a show we have planned where TimeformUS ® Chief Figure Maker ® Craig Milkowski makes fun of Brisnet figures, but really we'll be the TVG you know and love," said our source.
That's the scoop folks. I, like you, am really looking forward to it.
