From a release

Saturday morning’s edition of Off to the Races on The Racing Biz Radio Network will feature Belmont Stakes day chatter. The program airs at 10:00 a.m. over terrestrial radio on ESPN Richmond (VA) — 950 AM, 99.5 FM, and 102.7 FM — and via internet streaming.

The show will air every Saturday morning from February 10 through July 21.

“Each week, we hope to bring our listeners some of the most interesting guests in racing,” said Frank Vespe, publisher of The Racing Biz and host of the show. “We’re looking to keep our listeners abreast of the latest and best stories in the region.”

On Saturday’s show, the guests include:

  • Steve Byk. The popular host of At the Races, which airs daily on satellite radio, will join us from New York, where he’s been all week covering Belmont Stakes preparations.
  • Lauren Woolcott who, with her husband Rene, bred and own Sadler’s Joy, the multiple graded stakes-winning millionaire who is entered in the Grade 1 Manhattan Stakes on the Belmont undercard.
  • Nick Hahn and Derby Bill Watson. As always, racing analyst Nick Hahn and former Colonial Downs on-air handicapper Derby Bill Watson will join us to share their handicapping wit and wisdom.

The weekly, one-hour show will focus on Thoroughbred racing and breeding around the mid-Atlantic region and across the country.
