Racing Channels Return to NYC

NYRA teams with Time Warner and Cablevision to provide racing content.

The New York Racing Association has reached an agreement with New York City to provide content for Channels 71 and 73 on Time Warner and Cablevision basic cable systems, channels that had previously carried the NYCOTB Racing Network.

“We would like to thank the City of New York for working with us to return racing content to Time Warner and Cablevision,” said NYRA president and CEO Charles Hayward. “The restoration of these channels is a positive step for the New York racing industry and we are pleased to be able to provide customers in the city with television racing coverage.”
The channels will show racing content from approximately 11 a.m. – 8 p.m., with coverage usually extending to the end of the card at Santa Anita.
Featured coverage will include the live NYRA racing card (at Aqueduct, Belmont, or Saratoga) with handicapping insights from NYRA TV analysts Jason Blewitt, Eric Donovan, Andy Serling, and Maggie Wolfendale.
After the conclusion of NYRA’s live races, the channel will highlight select simulcast signals from tracks around the country.
On NYRA dark days, usually Mondays and Tuesdays, the channel will exclusively show simulcast signals from around the country.
