HRTV OFFERS EXTENSIVE ON-SITE COVERAGE FROM COAST-TO-COAST THIS SATURDAY
Arcadia, CA, Sept. 26 -- HRTV (R), The Network for Horse Sports, will provide racing fans with comprehensive on-track coverage of a tremendous day of racing from two sites -- Santa Anita and Belmont Park -- this Saturday, September 29.
The Fall racing season's biggest weekend to date offers a host of important stakes races on both coasts, with 11 graded stakes races on the combined cards from Santa Anita and Belmont classified as "Win & You're In" Breeders' Cup events. The 29th renewal of the prestigious two-day Breeders' Cup is slated for Santa Anita on Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3.
HRTV will provide daily on-site coverage from Santa Anita throughout the important 24-day Autumn Meet, and it will utilize a knowledgeable group of hosts/analysts to provide blanket coverage of the stakes bonanza during the "Great Race Place's" first Saturday of the Meet. (HRTV is headquartered in Santa Anita's Grandstand.)
At Belmont, HRTV's Richard Migliore and Carolyn Conley will be stationed at the historic facility throughout the day, reporting on a spectacular card that features four Grade 1 events.
Santa Anita's card sports five Grade 1, $250,000 events -- the Zenyatta, Chandelier, FrontRunner, Awesome Again, and Rodeo Drive -- with each winner punching their ticket to the Breeders' Cup.
Known as "Super Saturday" in New York, the robust card is topped by the $1 million Jockey Club Gold Cup. Other Grade 1 fixtures include: the $600,000 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic, the $400,000 Beldame, and the $400,000 Vosburgh. Rounding out the stakes slate are a pair of the Grade 2 races, the $600,000 Flower Bowl and the $400,000 Kelso.
