Steve Byk is widely known as the radio voice of Thoroughbred racing.

His show, At the Races, airs on Sirius 220 and XM 206 satellite radio.  Steve’s show airs for three hours per day, five days a week, 50 weeks a year, covering racing from around the country, with plenty of handicapping, features, and hard news, too.

“Whether it’s Hall of Fame trainers like Bob Baffert & Shug McGaughey, Award-winning Turf Writers like Steve Haskin & Jay Privman or game-changing handicappers Steve Crist and Andy Beyer, At the Races with Steve Byk is the sport’s one-stop listening experience,” according to his website.

He began hosting At the Races with Steve Byk in 2007.

In today’s Preakness Moments podcast, Steve discusses a favorite Preakness memory: when another native New Yorker, Funny Cide, earned the blanket of black-eyed-susans, and Steve used a little detective work to scope out the longshot runner-up.
