TVG’s ‘Chasing The Derby’ Series Continues From Fair Grounds; ‘Jockey Diaries’ Debuts

TVG will continue its “Chasing the Derby” series on Saturday with on-site coverage of the $1 million Louisiana Derby (G2).

TVG’s Caton Bredar will be on site at Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans with coverage, exclusive interviews and analysis of the key race for the 3-year-old division as well as the full card from Fair Grounds. There are seven additional stakes races including the $400,000 New Orleans Classic (G2) for older horses and the $400,000 Fair Grounds Oaks (G2) for 3-year-old fillies.

The races will be broadcast on TVG and NBCSN. It was announced on Wednesday that NBCSN will air TVG’s “Trackside Live” this Saturday and Sunday from 4:00-8:00 p.m. ET as well as the following Friday-Sunday (March 27-29) featuring racing from coast to coast.

In addition to in-depth coverage of all the weekend’s major races, on Sunday TVG will premier the first episode of “Jockey Diaries” which will take viewers on a year-in-the-life journey with jockey Joe Talamo as he made the decision to move from his long-time home base in California to ride at Oaklawn Park in Arkansas. It will air Sunday, March 22 at 11:00 a.m. ET.

Also on Sunday, fans can participate in TVG’s Super 8 Challenge contest that runs every Sunday and includes eight pre-selected races from across the country with consolation pools available for any player with more than five winners correct from the eight races.
