NBC Sports To Present Daily Live Coverage Of Royal Ascot Meeting

NBC Sports presents daily live coverage of the Royal Meeting in Ascot, England, beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, June 15, at 8:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN. Daily telecasts of the full five-day Royal Meeting will air on NBCSN through Friday, June 18, and conclude this Saturday, June 19 on NBC (9 a.m. ET) and CNBC (11 a.m. ET).

In total, NBC Sports will present nearly 25 hours of coverage over the five days.

Royal Ascot is Britain’s most valuable race meeting and features more than 30 races, including eight at the world championship “Group One” level. Highlighting this year’s American contingent are Extravagant Kid and Maven, a son of Triple Crown-winner American Pharoah, who are both expected to run in tomorrow’s G1 King’s Stand Stakes.

Throughout the week, coverage of The Royal Meeting features four live “Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series – Win and You’re In” races: The Queen Anne Stakes (Tues., June 15), Prince of Wales’s Stakes (Wed., June 16), The Norfolk Stakes (Thurs., June 17), and The Diamond Jubilee Stakes (Sat., Jun 19).

The Royal Meeting is the center of the British social season and a pivotal week in the calendar of the Royal Family. Queen Elizabeth II has attended Royal Ascot every year since 1945, except for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

NBC Sports’ Nick Luck will host Saturday’s coverage.
