Saturday’s International Festival of Racing at Arlington Park takes center stage on the Road to the Breeders’ Cup, with two Challenge Series “Win and You’re In” events – the Arlington Million and the Beverly D. Stakes. The winners of these two races receive berths to the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf and the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf, respectively.

The Arlington Million and Beverly D. will be featured in an hour-long broadcast by NBC Sports as part of the network’s “Win and You’re In” series of telecasts presented by Lane’s End and America’s Best Racing. The broadcast will air on NBCSN from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. ET.

A highlight of the week’s radio and online streaming coverage is the upcoming “The Winner’s Circle” podcast, presented by America’s Best Racing in conjunction with SB Nation Radio. Hosted by Bram Weinstein, the Aug. 12 podcast features scheduled guest Jeannine Edwards of ESPN.
