Keeneland and TVG officials have introduced several new initiatives on the racing and sales fronts that further enhance the long partnership enjoyed by the race track and racing network.
Beginning with the Thursday, April 4, opening day of the Spring Meet, TVG racing analysts Gabby Gaudet and Scott Hazelton will host “Today at Keeneland,” the track’s live, on-site preview show, and provide expert commentary in the Paddock between races. Additionally, Hazelton and TVG host Christina Blacker will assist the Keeneland sales team with recruitment and relationship management services for buyers and sellers at Keeneland’s four annual auctions.
Gaudet, Hazelton and Blacker each come from longstanding racing families.
TVG will provide daily live, on-site coverage of Keeneland’s Spring Meet, to be held April 4-26. On opening day, Thursday, April 4, TVG coverage begins at 2 p.m. ET; the first post is 3 p.m. TVG coverage begins at noon for the remainder of the meet, when the first post is 1:05 p.m.
“Today at Keeneland,” a 30-minute live program beginning at 11:30 a.m. on race days, previews the day’s card for on-track and simulcast patrons and includes handicapping picks and discussion of horses of interest. The program will air nationally on TVG2, locally on The CW Lexington and WKYT.com and stream live on Keeneland.com, Keeneland Select and Facebook Live. “Today at Keeneland” is based at Wagering Central on the first floor Grandstand, where fans are welcome to watch the live program.
