“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 plenty of Maryland Million talk. Maryland Million executive director Cricket Goodall, who has been involved from the very beginning, will join us to share some memories and some insights. The 37th annual Maryland Million celebration takes place Saturday with first post at 11:30 a.m.

We’ll also talk harness racing at Shenandoah Downs. And of course, legendary horseplayer Derby Bill Watson will be on hand.

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