Off to the Races Radio returns Saturday morning

Off to the Races Radio presented by The Racing Biz returns Saturday, October 29 as its 25th season rolls on.

The one-hour program will air each Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. on ESPN Richmond (106.1 FM) and via livestreaming. It will feature news and conversation about Thoroughbred racing and breeding in Virginia, around the Mid-Atlantic, and across the nation.

Nick Hahn will host with support from Frank Vespe. Derby Bill Watson will join each week to provide his handicapping insights and special brand of humor.

“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 Chip Reed and Debbie Easter. Reed is the owner-breeder of Johnyz From Albany, winner of last week’s Maryland Million Nursery and one of the best stories on a day filled with good stories. Easter helms the Virginia Thoroughbred Association.

We’ll also talk harness racing at Shenandoah Downs with owner-trainer-driver Betsy Brown. 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.

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