Live coverage of the March 8 Santa Anita Handicap (gr. I) has been added to "The Jockey Club Tour on FOX," officials said Feb. 24.
The $750,000 Big 'Cap is expected to feature 2014 Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) winner Mucho Macho Man, last year's champion 3-year-old male Will Take Charge, and Game On Dude. The race will be shown live from 7-7:30 p.m. EST on FOX Sports 1.
The next regularly scheduled telecast, which will show the Dubai World Cup (UAE-I), is set for March 29.
"This edition of the Big 'Cap promises to be one of the most exciting and most important races of the year, and we are elated that our television partner could find a spot for it in the programming schedule and that (Santa Anita Park owner) The Stronach Group was willing to shift the post time slightly to accommodate us," said Jason Wilson, vice president of business development for The Jockey Club.
