Prepare to Watch!
By Dana Byerly, Hello Race Fans Co-founder
As the the racing year heats up youâ€™ll have plenty of opportunities to watch racing on television!
On Sunday the Jockey Club will kick off its new “Jockey Club Tour on Fox” with the Donn Handicap at Gulfstream Park. The Donn drew 11 horses and is headlined by 2013 Travers and Clark winner Will Take Charge (who also happens to be the 2013 Eclipse 3-year-old champ!). Other champions, such as Invasor, have won the Donnâ€¦ find out more its history with our Ten Things!
The full schedule for The Jockey Club Tour on Fox:
This new series is in addition to NBC’s horse racing coverage, which includes the Triple Crown, Summer at Saratoga and the Breeders’ Cup. And, you’ll notice that all but two of the telecasts are on a Sunday, which means we could have several weekends with Saturday and Sunday viewing opportunities!
The series skews towards turf and synthetics so now is a great time to brush up on your Turf Pedigree handicapping. And, it youâ€™re relatively new to racing, be sure to check out our posts on How to Watch a Race and Understanding Race Calls to make the most of this upcoming opportunity!
