The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) and America’s Best Racing today announced an extension of their partnership through 2023. Accordingly, America’s Best Racing will continue as a presenting sponsor of both America’s Day at the Races and Saratoga Live.

America’s Best Racing, created in 2012 as The Jockey Club’s multimedia fan-development and awareness-building platform, began its partnership with NYRA and FOX Sports in 2019.

“America’s Best Racing is excited to extend its sponsorship partnership through 2023 with NYRA as a co-presenting title sponsor of America’s Day at the Races and Saratoga Live,” said Stephen B. Panus, President TJC Media Ventures/America’s Best Racing. “The opportunity to spotlight the best of Thoroughbred racing across high-quality linear telecasts and non-linear streaming channels aligns perfectly with the mission of America’s Best Racing.”

Broadcast to a national audience on the networks of FOX Sports, America’s Day at the Races is the exclusive home of elite thoroughbred racing from Belmont Park and Churchill Downs. In addition, America’s Day at the Races provides in-depth live coverage and analysis of thoroughbred racing from a variety of the sport’s most prominent venues.

Saratoga Live, the critically acclaimed and award-winning television program produced by NYRA in conjunction with FOX Sports, is in the midst of its sixth season broadcasting the summer meet at historic Saratoga Race Course to a national audience on the networks of FOX Sports with weekend regional coverage on newly named broadcast partner SNY.

NYRA produced nearly 800 hours of national television coverage in 2020, more than doubling its output from 2019, and continues to enhance its programing this year under Tony Allevato, NYRA's chief revenue officer and president of NYRA Bets.

“The continued support of America’s Best Racing allows NYRA and FOX Sports to provide new and existing fans with high quality television coverage that allows us to tell the stories that make our sport so special," said Allevato. “Innovative live television is critical in our efforts to grow the sport, and we thank America’s Best Racing for this important partnership.”
