Saratoga Races To Be Televised On NBC And Verses This Summer
For the first time ever, horseracing fans across the country will get to see all of the major stakes races at Saratoga Race Course this summer.
NYRA and the NBC Sports Group announced a partnership to broadcast “Summer at Saratoga,” live racing over seven weekends this summer beginning on July 23rd and including the $1 million Travers Stakes on August 27th.
This agreement marks the most extensive live national television coverage of racing from Saratoga Race Course.
In the past, the races at Saratoga that have been televised were on regional cable networks – usually those serving the northeast.
