“We’re thrilled to have Off to the Races back on the air,” said Frank Vespe, owner and publisher of The Racing Biz, which presents the program. “We’re looking forward to another season filled with great guests, good banter, and plenty of laughs.”

Saturday’s show features a visit with Grade 1-winning jockey Chantal Sutherland. Sutherland earned her first graded win in eight years when she piloted Lightening Larry to a win in the G3 Chick Lang Stakes on the Preakness undercard at Pimlico. Sutherland is best known for her riding partnership with multiple Grade 1 winner Game On Dude.

Also on the agenda is a conversation with analyst Ted Black to provide an update on the 2022 season at Charles Town Races. Also scheduled to be on the show Saturday are visits from Darrell Wood and Derby Bill Watson.

Sponsors include the Virginia Thoroughbred Association, Virginia Equine Alliance, Maryland Jockey Club, Charles Town Races, and others.

“We appreciate our sponsors who support Off to the Races,” Vespe said. “And we especially appreciate all of our listeners.”
