TV Games Network released its spring-summer schedule of exclusive racing coverage from the nation's leading racetracks Wednesday, and it begins with opening day of Keeneland's spring meet on Friday. It will feature on-location coverage of Saturday's Ashland Stakes (gr. I), Keeneland's 3-year-old filly prep for the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I).
Correspondent Jeff Lifson and analyst Caton Bredar will anchor TVG's coverage of the Ashland from Keeneland. The Ashland field is expected to include top 3-year-old fillies including Golden Ballet from California, winner of the Santa Anita Oaks (gr. I); Latour, recent of the Davona Dale Stakes at Gulfstream Park; She's a Devil, the winner of Keeneland's Walmac International Alcibiades Stakes (gr. II) last fall; and Gold Mover, a multiple graded stakes winner. Daylong coverage will include interviews with the connections of the Ashland contenders, features, and race analysis. With a purse of $500,000, the Ashland is part of a record $3.7 million stakes schedule comprised of 19 stakes races during Keeneland's 15-day spring meeting, which ends April 27.
