Programming note: Winning Post becomes a fixed new monthly horse racing show on CNN International.

Winning Post, the special programming horse racing show on CNN International (DStv 401) will now become a regular new monthly show on the global news channel with Francesca Cumani as the presenter.

Winning Post started on CNN International last year as a series of specials, but is now expanding to become a regular show.

"Winning Post presents an insiders' view of racing not seen before on an international scale; from the refined thoroughbreds to the logistics involved with training, feeding and transporting these magnificent athletes all over the world," says Jamie Donald, the director for CNN International Productions.

"We are delighted that a flat racing show now joins CNN's growing sports portfolio alongside Living Golf, MainSail, Open Court and The Circuit."

Francesca Cumani will be doing the first monthly Winning Post focusing on two of the most glamorous events in horse racing: the Prix de Diane and the Royal Ascot.
