Travers Stakes No Longer To Air On NBC
According to the New York Post this year's Travers Stakes will have a new television home. Andrew Marchand below is reporting this change.
NBC remains big players in the horse racing game with its extended coverage of the Triple Crown and the Breeders’ Cup. It had to relinquish the Travers because of the changes to the PGA Tour schedule. The Tour Championship, which Tiger Woods won last year, is scheduled for its third round on the day of the Travers. This opened the door for Fox
Marchand is also reporting that legendary jockey Gary Stevens will likely be a part of the Fox broadcast. The 151st running of the Travers Stakes will take place at Saratoga Race Course on Saturday August 24th. .What does it mean for you that NBC will no longer be carrying the Travers Stakes?
