ESPN 104.5 The Team, the Capital Region's radio home for New York sports, will feature live, full card coverage of all the action from Saratoga Race Course each weekend during the 2021 season.
Live coverage of Thoroughbred racing from Saratoga will begin each Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. and include every race through final post broadcast on 104.5 FM, as well as streamed worldwide at 1045theteam.com or available by downloading the free 104.5 The Team App.
Presented by NYRA Bets, NYSCOPBA, Tech East Fire and Water Restoration and Michelob Ultra, the weekend broadcasts will simulcast a portion of Saratoga Live, the nationally acclaimed horse racing telecast produced by NYRA in partnership with FOX Sports.
On Fridays, the station will also air the live race calls by NYRA track announcer John Imbriale during “The Drive with Charlie and Dan” which will originate from Saratoga beginning at 3 p.m.
“We received great feedback about this partnership last season and are excited to continue to offer Capital Region horse racing fans the opportunity to enjoy the audio simulcast of Saratoga Live through the local ESPN Radio affiliate,” said Tony Allevato, NYRA Chief Revenue Officer. “This is yet another convenient way for our fans to access the thrill and excitement of Saratoga.”
