From the National Thoroughbred Racing Association

Due to late programming changes resulting from Barry Bonds’ pursuit of the all-time home run record, ESPN will not televise the Aug. 4 “NTRA Summer Racing - Powered by Dodge” program featuring the Darley Test Stakes (gr. I) from Saratoga and the West Virginia Derby (gr. III) from Mountaineer Race Track & Gaming Resort.

Instead, the telecast will air live from 5-6 p.m. EDT on ESPN Classic. Both races will also be shown live via cut-ins on ESPNEWS. The full 60-minute program will also be re-aired Aug. 5 on ESPN2 from 5-6 a.m. and again from 10-11 p.m. EDT.
