Betting group Paddy Power has announced that they've signed on to use the Bookmakers Afternoon Greyhound Service, which will allow the company's retail shops to broadcast and take bets on the dog races on the network.
BAGS will broadcast the races to more than 630 Paddy Power retail shops. The group's network includes 12 greyhound tracks in the UK and offers thousands of races yearly. The network is currently being integrated into the shop, and will be offered in short order.
Speaking about the deal Paddy Power Betfair Managing Director David Newton noted: "Paddy Power is delighted to have entered into this agreement to ensure that customers have access to a broader range of quality greyhound racing content."
The Racing Partnership Director Mark Kingston also commented by adding: "We are delighted that Paddy Power has joined other betting shop operators in being able to show BAGS greyhound fixtures on their channels. The BAGS schedule comprises over 1,600 fixtures per year from well-known tracks with a proven record of integrity and welfare."
"This is a further vindication of the value of the BAGS brand and all it stands for."
