From a release

Saturday morning’s edition of Off to the Races on The Racing Biz Radio Network will feature talk about the big Monmouth Park card, featuring the Grade 1 United Nations. 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:

  • Bruce Quade. The former chairman of the Maryland Racing Commission will join us to take a look back at his tenure on the Commission, his take on today’s racing industry, and his thoughts on the future.
  • John Heims. The Monmouth Park racing secretary – who wears many other hats, as well – will discuss the Saturday card, which features three graded stakes, topped by the G1 United Nations.
  • 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.
