Coverage this upcoming weekend is highlighted by stakes action from Churchill Downs Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5 with several prep races for Churchill’s big Stephen Foster Stakes day on July 2. Racing from Churchill Downs and Belmont Park will be showcased on “America’s Day at the Races.” The NYRA-produced show airs this week from Thursday to Sunday on FS2 and FS1 – check the schedule below for air times..

TVG will show races daily from Santa Anita Park, Gulfstream Park, Woodbine, and a host of other tracks as part of its usual package.

For livestreming content, ABR kicks off a series of interviews this week previewing the prestigious Royal Ascot meet in England, which runs from June 14-18.
