Saratoga Live extended through 2020


The New York Racing Association has reached a three-year extension on a deal to broadcast a two-hour live racing program from Saratoga Race Course on FOX Sports 2 each racing day, the partners announced on Thursday.

The deal extends the partnership on the program, called Saratoga Live, through 2020. Saratoga Live first began broadcasting on Fox Sports 2 in 2016, with a two-hour program typically featuring the last four or five races on the card each day.

The program is now available in 75 million homes, according to the partners, with regional coverage on a number of Fox Sports affiliates in selected markets.

On Saturday, the day of the Grade 1 Travers Stakes, Saratoga Live will run from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Eastern, with live coverage of the Grade 1 Personal Ensign, featuring Songbird. The Travers itself will be broadcast live on NBC during a 90-minute broadcast running from 4:30 to 6.
