Apple Blossom Showdown: TVG To Go Behind-The-Scenes With Champion Monomoy Girl

TVG, America’s horse racing network, will take fans behind the scenes for Saturday’s $1 million Apple Blossom Handicap (G1) from Oaklawn Park for the showdown between two-time Breeders’ Cup Distaff champion Monomoy Girl and 2020 Preakness Stakes heroine Swiss Skydiver as part of the weekend’s broadcast.

TVG will have a camera dedicated to Monomoy Girl for the entire day and fans can tune in to watch the live stream beginning 2:15pm PT / 5:15pm ET on the WatchTVG app. Caton Bredar will be with the two-time Eclipse Award winning mare throughout her pre-race preparations and will be reporting throughout the day. Trained by Brad Cox and owned in partnership by My Racehorse Stable, Spendthrift Farm and Madaket Stables, LLC, Monomoy Girl will have Florent Geroux in the irons as she faces a field of five rivals including Swiss Skydiver, winner of the Beholder Mile (G1) in her 4-year-old debut for trainer Ken McPeek.

TVG’s Joaquin Jaime will also be providing insight and analysis into Oaklawn’s twelve-race card which also includes the $1 million Oaklawn Handicap (G2) for older males which has drawn a contentious field of eight including Express Train, a California-invader for trainer John Shirreffs. The 4-year-old son of Union Rags was last seen finishing second in the Santa Anita Handicap (G1).

Todd Schrupp, Christina Blacker, Gabby Gaudet and Caleb Keller will be broadcasting live from Keeneland with exclusive interviews, expert analysis and insights throughout the weekend. Friday’s featured event is the $100,000 Doubledogdare Stakes (G3) for fillies and mares. The mile and a sixteenth contest has drawn a field of seven including graded stakes winner Royal Flag for trainer Chad Brown. The 5-year-old daughter of Candy Ride, a homebred for William S. Farish, has been freshened since winning the Turnback the Alarm Handicap (G3) in November and will have Joel Rosario in the irons.

The graded stakes action continues Saturday with the $200,000 Elkhorn Stakes (G2), a mile and a half turf event with a field of ten. Trainer Michael Maker has won the last two editions of this race and will saddle three contenders including graded stakes winner Cross Border, third in the Pegasus World Cup Turf (G1) in January.

TVG’s Mike Joyce, Simon Bray and Britney Eurton will be reporting live from Santa Anita with full coverage of the nine-race card. The featured race is the $200,000 Californian Stakes (G2) which has attracted a compact but competitive field of five. Trainer Bob Baffert will send out Magic on Tap for his stakes debut after an allowance victory in March as well as graded stakes winner Country Grammer who has been on the sidelines since the Runhappy Travers Stakes (G1) in August.

Fans of international racing can also tune in for the action from Royal Randwick for Championship Day 2 featuring the $4 million Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes (G1). Jason Witham will be anchoring the Australian coverage Friday night.

In addition to racing from Keeneland, Oaklawn and Santa Anita, TVG will feature racing from Gulfstream Park, Aqueduct and more.
