TVG Plans ‘Year In Review’ Feature For New Year’s Eve

Horse racing fans can tune into TVG on New Year’s Eve at 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. PT on Friday for a special “Year in Review” feature. The network will take a look back at memorable racing moments throughout 2021 including Triple Crown prep races, the Breeders’ Cup from Del Mar and international racing. On Saturday, newly-minted 3-year-olds will compete for Kentucky Derby (G1) points in the $250,000 Smarty Jones Stakes at Oaklawn Park, $100,000 Sham Stakes (G3) from Santa Anita and the $150,000 Jerome Stakes from Aqueduct.

TVG’s Caleb Keller will be reporting live from Oaklawn Park on Saturday. The Smarty Jones Stakes will offer 10-4-2-1 points towards a spot in the starting gate in the Kentucky Derby and the race has drawn a full field of fourteen. Home Brew, one of two contenders for trainer Brad Cox, has been installed as the 3-1 morning line favorite and will be ridden by Florent Geroux. A homebred son of Street Sense for Gary and Mary West, he has one two of his three starts and will be making his stakes debut.

Kentucky Derby points will be up for grabs at Santa Anita in the $100,000 Sham Stakes (G3), one of four graded stakes races on the card along with the $250,000 Joe Hernandez Stakes (G2), $200,000 La Canada Stakes (G3) and the $100,000 Robert J. Frankel Stakes (G3). Todd Schrupp, Britney Eurton, Christina Blacker, Scott Hazelton, Dave Weaver and Kurt Hoover will be reporting live from Santa Anita throughout the day with exclusive interviews, analysis and features.

Gulfstream Park has a loaded card featuring six black-type events on Saturday. Larry Collmus and Andie Biancone will be reporting live from the track with interviews and expert analysis. The featured event is the $150,000 Mucho Macho Man Stakes, a one mile contest for 3-year-olds. Strike Hard, fresh off of an allowance win at Gulfstream in December, is the 2-1 morning line favorite for trainer Matthew Williams and will have Junior Alvarado in the irons as he faces five rivals.

In addition to racing from Oaklawn Park and Santa Anita TVG will be featuring racing from Gulfstream Park, Tampa Bay Downs, Fair Grounds, Aqueduct 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.
