From a release
Off to the Races on The Racing Biz Radio Network returns to talk horse racing Saturday, February 18 for its second show of the 2017 season.
The one-hour program will air at 10:00 a.m. each Saturday on Richmond’s ESPN 950 AM. Additional stations will be announced as they come online.
The show will focus on Thoroughbred racing and breeding around the mid-Atlantic region and across the country.
Saturday’s lineup will include a special focus on the big Saturday of racing at Maryland’s Laurel Park. The card includes the Grade 2 Barbara Fritchie Stakes, the Grade 3 General George, and four additional stakes races. On to discuss it will be Maryland Jockey Club president Sal Sinatra, and we’ll do a deep dive on handicapping the day’s races with Nick Hahn and Derby Bill Watson.
The show’s first guest will be Pajeen Delp, daughter of Hall of Fame trainer Bud Delp, to discuss her recent decision to leave the sport she loves.
“It’s really the first big day of racing of 2017 in the Mid-Atlantic, and we’re excited to talk about it on Off to the Races on The Racing Biz Radio Network,” said Frank Vespe, owner-publisher of The Racing Biz. “And maybe, as he did last week, Derby Bill can give us some winners!”
