TVG Broadcasting Six ‘Win And You’re In’ Races Live From Santa Anita This Weekend

The road to the Breeders’ Cup will run through Santa Anita on Friday and Saturday as the track begins its Autumn Meet with six Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge Series races over the course of two days. TVG, America’s horse racing network, will be broadcasting live from Arcadia, Calif. with full coverage of opening weekend.

TVG’s Todd Schrupp, Christina Blacker, Britney Eurton, Mike Joyce, Scott Hazelton and Joaquin Jaime will be trackside with exclusive interviews, analysis and handicapping selections throughout the weekend. There will also be a drone utilized throughout the races. The popular drone technology was introduced during Del Mar’s record breaking meet and will be continued to be used throughout the Santa Anita season.

Friday’s Opening Day card puts juveniles in the spotlight with the $100,000 Speakeasy Stakes (Juvenile Turf), $200,000 Chandelier Stakes (Juvenile Fillies) and the $300,000 American Pharoah Stakes (TVG Juvenile).

The winner of the $300,000 American Pharoah Stakes (G1) will earn an automatic spot in the starting gate in the $2 million TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) and has attracted a field of seven colts. Trainer Bob Baffert has won this race nine times and will saddle three contenders including 6-5 morning line favorite Corniche. Purchased for $1.5 million in April, the bay son of Quality Road was an impressive maiden winner at Del Mar and will have Mike Smith in the irons.

On Saturday, the major stakes racing will continue with three more Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge races – the $200,000 Santa Anita Sprint (Sprint), $300,000 Rodeo Drive Stakes (Filly and Mare Turf) and the $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes (Classic).

The $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes (G1) has drawn a contentious field of eight including TVG Pacific Classic (G1) winner Tripoli. Trained by John Sadler and owned by Hronis Racing, LLC, the chestnut son of Kitten’s Joy will square off against Medina Spirit, recent winner of the Shared Belief Stakes for Bob Baffert.

The Breeders’ Cup World Championships will be held Nov. 5-6 at Del Mar.

TVG will also be covering the full card from Longchamp on Sunday morning featuring five Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” Challenge Series races – Prix de L’Abbaye de Longchamp Longines (Turf Sprint), Qatar Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe (Turf), Qatar Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere (Juvenile Turf), Qatar Prix Marcel Boussac (Juvenile Fillies Turf) and Prix de L’Opera Longines (Juvenile Fillies Turf). The broadcast will feature insights from international experts Scott Hazelton and Jess Stafford as well as a Money Back Special on the Arc.

In addition to racing from the Santa Anita, will also be featuring Gulfstream Park, Laurel Park and more. Fans can tune in on TVG, TVG2 and the Watch TVG app which is available on Amazon Fire, Roku and connected Apple TV devices.
