The "NTRA Summer Racing Tour," presented by Long John Silver's, will air on CBS in June and July. Featuring races in four Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships divisions (Classic, Distaff, Turf and Mile), the three one-hour shows will air on June 15, June 29 and July 6 from 5-6:00 p.m. (ET).
The "NTRA Summer Racing Tour" will showcase important races as we transition to the second half of the racing season and multi-venue process that defines leading contenders for the 2002 Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships," said NTRA Commissioner Tim Smith. "We are delighted once again to be partnering with CBS and pleased that so many major international races will be included. Fans this year will be more familiar than ever with the stars likely to run in the Breeders' Cup at Arlington Park on Oct. 26."
Hosting the NTRA Summer Racing Tour will be Dave Johnson. He will be joined by analysts Randy Moss and Caton Bredar and commentators Lesley Visser and Gary Seibel.
