After an eventful weekend featuring the TVG.com Haskell Stakes and opening weekends at Saratoga Race Course and Del Mar, the upcoming schedule slides into a mid-summer groove with a brief break from “Win and You’re In” qualifying races for the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.

There are no domestic Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series races on tap this upcoming weekend, but there is no shortage of action coast to coast. The main event will be the Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks at Saratoga on Saturday, July 21, which is expected to draw Longines Kentucky Oaks winner Malathaat.

Racing from Saratoga is featured on the NYRA-produced Saratoga Live.” The show runs from Wednesday to Sunday on either FS1 or FS2 – check the below schedule for air times.

Racing from Del Mar and many other tracks around the country will be broadcast on TVG as part of their comprehensive daily coverage.

Live streaming coverage kicks off Thursday, July 22 with a new edition of the popular “La Trifecta” show airs at 8 p.m. ET. Presented en Espanol, the show is hosted by Darwin Vizcaya, Claudia Spadaro, and Annise Montplaisir. It airs on ABR’s Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channels.

On Friday, July 23, “Always Be Racing” returns for a new show. Hosted by BlackJack Fletcher and Danielle Moinet, the show begins at 3 p.m. ET. “Always Be Racing” can be viewed on ABR's Facebook and Twitter channels as well as BlackJack's Twitter account and Danielle's Twitter account.

ABR's new “Saratoga Saturdays” live streaming show, which premiered last weekend, continues this Saturday, July 24, at 8 a.m. ET. The morning show, hosted by Jonathon Kinchen and Anita Marks, will delve deeply into all things Spa-specific and preview the major Saturday races. “Saratoga Saturdays” can be viewed on ABR’s Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channels as well as Jonathon’s Twitter account and Anita’s Twitter account, and it will air every Saturday through Sept. 4.

ABR's “The Winner’s Circle” returns for its usual Monday timeslot of 11 a.m. ET with a show on July 26. Presented by NYRA and NYRA Bets and hosted by Bram Weinstein and Dan Tordjman, “The Winner’s Circle” will wrap up the weekend and look ahead to important upcoming races in August. “The Winner’s Circle” can be viewed on ABR’s Facebook and Twitter channels and Bram Weinstein’s Twitter channel.
