Where abouts are you? Plenty of Irish pubs will have it on. Watched Royal Ascot in Boston this year. Racing from about 10 in the morning was great

Will be near New Orleans so good to hear that there is a chance of me finding it.

Not sure New Orleans will have a massive selection, check out a few bars in the days before there's bound to be one

I have a friend living in NYC who goes to a bar in Queens that opens early to show it.
I realise that is not all that helpful to you vis but my point is that there is coverage available in the USA.
6 hr time difference tho so an early start

I'm not too bothered about the early start if I know somewhere will be showing it.  Getting a bet on could be an issue though Grin

I know it's not the same, but if you can't find a pub, you can watch the replays about 40 mins after each race on the sporting life or racinguk website at no cost.  I was in NYC in August and it worked.  Be careful with bets though as I placed some online with PP and they suspended my account as illegal to use them in the US.  They accepted the bet though in the first place.  Not sure about other bookies or bet over the phone.

Was in NYC two years ago.....couldn't find anywhere.

Places that previously used to show it now don't :(

I am in Bermuda and watch Racing UK online which will show all the Cheltenham races. As for betting log-on through Express VPN.
