Larry Collmus, TVG, HRRN To Anchor On-Site Coverage Of Friday’s Charles Town Classic

With new food, beverage and entertainment options available to those making it to Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races on Friday, Aug. 27, those unable to make it out to the track’s largest racing event will still be able to enjoy the action whether at home, in the car or watching through one of Charles Town’s many simulcast partners.

For those at home, the Charles Town Classic card will once again be broadcast live on the TVG Network, with the added bonus of TVG providing feet on the ground coverage with analyst Caton Bredar reporting from West Virginia. Bredar, who has worked behind the scenes and in front of the camera for ABC, ESPN, CBS and FOX amongst others marks the first on-site appearance by TVG since the 2012 edition of the Charles Town Classic.

The Horse Racing Radio Network, a winner of multiple Eclipse Awards and a Sovereign Award for its multimedia coverage of racing events will be broadcasting the Charles Town Classic for the tenth consecutive year. HRRN’s on-site coverage will be anchored by Mike Penna and announcer Bobby Neuman with the show available to listeners on Sirius channel 216 and XM 201 as well as streaming through the Horse Racing Radio Network website.

Additionally, a familiar face – and voice – to racing fans will be seen on the track’s simulcast feed with NBC’s voice of the Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup, Larry Collmus handing paddock host duties for stakes races on the latter portion of the card. Collmus, who famously called American Pharoah’s 2015 Triple Crown triumph and Justify’s sweep of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes just three years later, served as the track’s guest announcer for the Charles Town Classic from 2012 through 2014.

The first race on Charles Town Classic day is slated for 5:00 P.M EST, with the $800,000 Charles Town Classic carrying a tentative post time of 10:18 P.M.
