Saratoga | Coglianese

FOX SARATOGA SATURDAY, a new national television show covering the summer meet at Saratoga Race Course, presented by FOX Sports and the New York Racing Association, will debut this coming Saturday beginning at 3 p.m. ET. The show will air on FOX for six consecutive weeks and deliver in-depth broadcasts of the historic track's biggest races.

“The greatest meet in horse racing is moving to FOX Sports' biggest stage,” said Michael Mulvihill, President, Insights and Analytics, FOX Sports, FOX Entertainment and Tubi. “The launch of FOX SARATOGA SATURDAY demonstrates FOX Sports' commitment to showcasing this timeless sport and brings both new players and longtime handicappers as close to the action as possible.”

FOX SARATOGA SATURDAY airs through Aug. 26, culminating with an expanded show for the GI Travers S. FOX SARATOGA SATURDAY will offer fans in-depth coverage and analysis of:

The GI Coaching Club American Oaks on July 22; the GII Jim Dandy Presented by DK Horse July 29; the GI Whitney on Aug. 5; the GI Fourstardave H. Aug. 12; the GI Alabama Presented by Keeneland Sales Aug. 19; and the GI Travers Aug. 26.

“There is nothing in sports quite like the energy and excitement of a Saturday at Saratoga,  said Tony Allevato, NYRA Chief Revenue Officer and President of NYRA Bets. “Thanks to FOX Sports, this new show means the most national broadcast hours of Saratoga in history.”

NYRA and FOX Sports first established a partnership in 2016 with the launch of Saratoga Live, the critically acclaimed and award-winning television show providing daily coverage of the 40-day summer meet at historic Saratoga Race Course. FOX Sports has continually expanded its coverage of racing's most important events each year since 2016 resulting in more than 1000 hours of live horse racing coverage in 2023.

Reflecting their long-term commitment to the sport of Thoroughbred horse racing, FOX Sports is also now the exclusive home of the GI Belmont S. presented by NYRA Bets, which aired on FOX for the first time in 2023.
