The HBPA of Ontario is thrilled that CTV and CTV2 will be the home of our ten week pilot project “Talkin’ Horses” beginning this Saturday, September 6 at 11:30 am. Co-Hosts Joe Tilley and Jason Portuondo will give viewers a behind the scene look at Ontario’s thoroughbred racing industry, promote upcoming events and feature interviews with some of the sport’s most interesting, influential and respected personalities.

The two networks, CTV and CTV2, have announced some schedules changes to their upcoming broadcast schedule. Talkin’ Horses on CTV and CTV2 COMPLETE SCHEDULE

Tilley, Portuondo and the show’s producer, Alex Narvaez, will base the action out of Toronto’s Woodbine Racetrack with frequent side trips to Ontario’s other thoroughbred venue, the picturesque oval at Fort Erie.  They will be supported on-air by long time thoroughbred writer and handicapper, Jennifer Morrison, well known Fort Erie commentator, Elissa Blowe and Maddie-Jo Tilley, a Humber College honours journalism graduate.

Tune in weekly as Joe and Jason demonstrate what a terrific pastime thoroughbred racing can be from a fan’s perspective and why owning your own racehorse can be such an unparalleled thrill.
