I read an article earlier in the week that mentioned NBC Sports has been showing horse racing coverage every weekend basically since this pandemic killed all sports in North America. The coverage is from TVG, the main national racing broadcaster in the States.

It made me wonder why TSN didn't think to do a similar deal with HPI here in Canada. Would've been win-win — TSN has some live sports coverage to broadcast and HPI can get more exposure on their TV network and gambling site.

Perhaps because HPI doesn't have the right to sell those broadcast rights for distribution in Canada on a national network.

The golf match:Champions for Charity, featuring Tiger Woods and former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson and current NFL quarterback Tom Brady, will be seen on Sunday, May 24th at 3pm Eastern on HLN in Canada.The event will benefit Covod-19 efforts. It comes from Medalist Golf Club, Hobe Sound, Florida.

So far, I only see it on HLN, which many of us receive. No Canadian channel has it listed, yet.
