Major Weekend Stakes to Air on TVG

(Edited TVG release)


Over the Oct. 9-11 weekend, TVG will broadcast live from Belmont Park, Keeneland and Oak Tree at Santa Anita with coverage of major stakes serving as precursors to next month's Breeders' Cup World Championships.

Highlighting the TVG coverage will be the $300,000 Lady's Secret Stakes (gr. I) at Santa Anita, where Zenyatta will attempt to match Personal Ensign's female record by capturing her 13th straight victory to begin her career. TVG's Ken Rudulph, Matt Carothers and Greg Wolf will be reporting trackside on the Lady’s Secret, as well as three other Breeders' Cup prep races at Oak Tree – Oak Tree Mile, Goodwood Stakes and Yellow Ribbon Stakes.

TVG's live daily coverage of Keeneland's fall meet begins this weekend with Todd Schrupp, Simon Bray, Tom Amoss and Donna Barton Brothers broadcasting live from Lexington. The network will be on track offering coverage and analysis of each race during Keeneland's opening weekend, including the Shadwell Turf Mile, Dixiana Breeders' Futurity, First Lady Stakes and Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes. TVG's coverage of East Coast racing also takes the network to Belmont Park where Christina Olivares and Paul Lo Duca will host TVG's coverage of the Champagne Stakes, Frizette Stakes and Jamaica Handicap.


TVG also announced that beginning Oct. 9, the network will change the start time of its Wednesday-Friday live programming to 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT with the introduction of a new show "Morning Line: East Coast Edition."
