The New York Racing Association (NYRA) announced that America’s Day at the Races returns this week on FOX Sports and MSG Networks to provide coverage and analysis of thoroughbred racing from Belmont Park, Churchill Downs and Delaware Park.
After a nine day hiatus, the show resumes on Thursday (tomorrow) with live racing from Churchill Downs and Delaware Park.
The show then transitions on Friday (Opening Day of the 27-day Belmont Park fall meet) to complete coverage of this weekend’s live racing from Belmont Park and Churchill Downs.
Produced by NYRA in partnership with FOX Sports, the widely praised national telecast airs Thursday through Sunday on FOX Sports (FS1/FS2) and MSG+, beginning each day at 12:30 p.m., Eastern.
With the addition of a show on Wednesday, September 23rd, America’s Day at the Races will air live coverage of every race day this fall at both Belmont Park and Churchill Downs.
The 2020 Belmont Park fall meet which begins on Friday, September 18th will run through Sunday, November 1st.
Following the opening weekend at Belmont, live racing will be conducted Thursday through Sunday with the exception of Columbus Day weekend, when live racing will be offered on Monday, October 12th and will resume on Friday, October 16th.
Churchill Downs will have live racing from Wednesday through Sunday, with their last card being Sunday, September 27th.
America’s Day at the Races is bringing back the highly acclaimed broadcast team that we got to know and appreciate during the Saratoga Live broadcasts.
That broadcast team includes; Greg Wolf, Andy Serling, Maggie Wolfendale, Richard Migliore, Acacia Courtney and Jonathon Kinchen.
Each of those voices brings something unique to the telecast. They all have an easy way about them, and are knowledgeable about the sport they love.
Time between races allows for prerecorded stories, profiles and interviews.
When the gate opens there is no need to pipe in fake crowd noise or get shots of cardboard cut-outs in the grandstand.
Track announcer John Imbriale gives the race call from start to finish with professionalism and excitement (when warranted), as you watch it all unfold.
Just pure, unadulterated, horse racing. Which is all you really want/need from any sport you turn to these days- to be able to watch what you tuned in to see.
