TVG to Cover All-American Futurity

TVG logo
With close to $5 million on the line, TVG, America’s Horseracing Network, will be on-site at Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico, to present exclusive, live coverage of the two richest events in quarter horse racing, Monday’s Grade I, $2.4 million All American Futurity, and Sunday’s Grade I, $2.3 million All American Derby.

 

Each contested at 440 yards, the Futurity and Derby showcase the sport’s fastest two and three-year-olds, respectively.

 

TVG will be on air Monday from Ruidoso beginning at 3:00 p.m. ET, with coverage of the Futurity kicking off at 6:00 p.m. ET. The race will also be seen on Prime Ticket, Fox Sports San Diego, Sun Sports, MSG+ and Altitude. Sunday’s coverage of the Derby is scheduled for 6:00-8:00 p.m. ET. Both telecasts air in partnership with the AQHA.

 

Hosting both programs will be Todd Schrupp, joined by analysts Mike Joyce, Dave Weaver and Ed Burgart, “the voice of quarter horse racing,” who will also call both events.

 

“Premier quarter horse racing is an important component of our broadcast schedule,” said Tony Allevato, TVG executive vice president, “and these two events rank among the sport’s most prestigious.”

 

Among the weekend’s key storylines will be the fortunes of trainer John Stinebaugh, who will saddle three horses in the All American Futurity, including the two fastest qualifiers, PJ Chick in Black and Krash Cartel, as well as Just Wanna Corona. In the All American Derby all eyes will be on Ochoa, winner of last year’s All American Futurity, who, with a win, will become the sport’s all-time leading money earner.

 

In addition to Stinebaugh’s threesome, the field for the All American Futurity will include Aha Moment, BP Cartels Alibi, Jess A Zoomin, Mr. Perry Cartel, Native Tea Rose, One Dashing Eagle and Sudden Thoughts.

 

Only the sixth fastest qualifier, Ochoa will have his work cut out in the All American Derby, where the fastest qualifier was one of two Eddie Willis’ trainees, BPs Jumpin Frisco. Willis also will also start A Toss Up in the race. Rounding out the field will be Bills Last, Eyein This Feature, Hez Our Secret, Jess Featureme Quick, Linda Tee Fire, Lotta Love For Robyn and Testing The Ice.

 

TVG account holders can wager on all Ruidoso Downs races.

This used to be a very big deal. Playboy did an atricle many years back and calcuated the thing ws wroth about 3,000 dollars a YARD. With the tremendously bad press in recent issues of the New York Times, this one will be a very hard sell nowadays
