TVG will broadcast live from Turfway Park on Saturday, March 26, covering the Northern Kentucky track’s 12-race card that includes the $500,000 Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes (gr. III).

The network’s coverage also will be carried by FSN Prime Ticket, Sun Sports, the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, SportSouth, and MSG Plus. TVG’s coverage is from 5 to 6 p.m. EDT. Post time for the Spiral Stakes is 5:31 p.m.

"TVG is excited to be the exclusive broadcaster of this year's Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes,” said Tony Allevato Sr., vice president and executive producer of TVG. “Year in and year out the Spiral represents one of the most wide open Derby prep races and this year looks to be no exception."

Hosting the day’s live coverage from Turfway will be TVG commentators Greg Wolf, Donna Barton Brothers, and Michelle Yu.

The Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes is supported by four undercard stakes: the Bourbonette Oaks (gr. III), for 3-year-old fillies; the Rushaway and Hansel stakes, both for 3-year-olds; and the Queen Stakes, for older fillies and mares.
