Activity on the Road to the 2021 Breeders’ Cup takes a pause this upcoming weekend before resuming with the TVG.com Haskell Stakes on July 17. The main event on the calendar is the closing weekend of Belmont Park's spring meet, which features two premier turf Grade 1 races for 3-year-olds, the Belmont Derby Invitational Stakes and the Belmont Oaks Invitational Stakes, on Saturday, July 10.

Both of those stakes as well as all of the other races during Big Sandy's final weekend will be showcased on the NYRA-produced “America’s Day at the Races” program presented by Claiborne Farm and America’s Best Racing. It airs on FS1 and FS2 from Friday to Sunday – check the below schedule for air times.

Daily broadcasts of racing from tracks around the country, including a big racecard at Delaware Park on July 10, will also be televised on TVG as part of their comprehensive coverage.

For live streaming coverage, ABR's “Always Be Racing” show returns this Friday, July 9. 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 “The Winner’s Circle” returns for its usual Monday timeslot of 11 a.m. ET with a show on July 12. Presented by NYRA and NYRA Bets and hosted by Bram Weinstein and Dan Tordjman, “The Winner’s Circle” will wrap up the Belmont meet and look ahead to the opening of Saratoga Race Course and Del Mar as well as the Haskell Stakes in the days to come. “The Winner’s Circle” can be viewed on ABR’s Twitter and Facebook channels and Bram Weinstein’s Twitter channel.
