1/ST will expand its partnership with NBC Sports to broadcast the 1/ST Racing Tour on NBC, CNBC and Peacock, they said in a Thursday press release. A series of connected coast-to-coast races that kicked off with the 2023 Pegasus World Cup, the tour will take place on the first Saturday over the next three months, and will also include the GI Preakness Stakes in May.

“While these legendary races are familiar to many, the 1/ST Racing Tour format brings a fresh and innovative approach to bi-coastal racing,” said Gregg Colvin, Chief Executive Officer, 1/ST Content. “The volume of world-class racing content and the sheer number of televised races we are able to offer on premier race days coupled with big jackpots, new types of wagers and unique hospitality experiences is something that only 1/ST can deliver.”

This connected series provides over 11-hours of expanded racing content, including live coverage of six Triple Crown preps. 1/ST Racing Tour days feature full race day cards, 60 stakes races, coast-to-coast Pick 5 wagers and six 1/ST handicapping contests. Coverage of the 1/ST Racing Tour continues Saturday, Feb. 4, with two-hours of live broadcasts from Gulfstream Park and Santa Anita Park from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. EST. NBC Sports' programming will also include supporting coverage on FanDuelTV.
