Horse racing: Saratoga race course

Saratoga Race Course will be prominently featured on television in 2014, with NBC, the NBC Sports Network, Fox Sports 1, and MSG+ all signed on to present live coverage of many of the historic track’s most prestigious races.

For the fourth straight year, the NBC Sports Group will be at the Spa on several Saturdays and will present national broadcasts of the track’s two most lucrative races: the Grade 1, $1.5 million Whitney on August 2 and the Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers on August 23. Both the Whitney and the Travers will be shown live on NBC. In addition, NBC will show the Grade 1, $500,000 Test on August 2 and the Grade 1, $500,000 Ballerina on August 23.

The NBC Sports Group’s coverage will conclude on August 30 when the NBC Sports Network broadcasts the Grade 1, $600,000 Woodward and the Grade 1, $500,000 Forego.

The Whitney, Travers, and Woodward broadcasts are all part of the NBC Sports Group’s “Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series: Win and You’re In” series.
