A Labor Day weekend of horse racing that few fans will forget is over, highlighted by one of the most awesome displays of talent in modern history provided by Flightline in the TVG Pacific Classic Stakes at Del Mar.

On the opposite coast, the elite Saratoga Race Course meet concluded with record handle, over 1 million in attendance, and a slew of memorable performances. Now, the NYRA production team behind “Saratoga Live” takes a week off before returning with “America’s Day at the Races” on Sept. 15 featuring action from Aqueduct (which hosts Belmont Park’s fall 2022 meet while that track undergoes construction) and Churchill Downs.

The focus this upcoming weekend is on three locales: picturesque Southern California, where Del Mar winds down its own successful summer meet; folksy Kentucky Downs, which will host two Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” races on Sept. 10; and Leopardstown Racecourse in Ireland, which will also host three Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series qualifiers on the same day.

At Kentucky Downs, the Calumet Turf Cup (a Challenge Series prep for the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf) and the FanDuel Turf Sprint (a qualifier for the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint) will be broadcast on NBCSN during a show from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET as part of NBC Sports’ Road to the Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series presented by America’s Best Racing.

All races from Del Mar’s closing weekend, which ends Sunday, Sept. 11, will be shown live on FanDuel TV along with races from Monmouth Park, Gulfstream Park, Woodbine, and many other venues.

Racing from Leopardstown on Sept. 10, including the Irish Champion Stakes (a “Win and You’re In” race for the Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf), the Coolmore America Justify Matron Stakes (Maker’s Mark Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf), and the KPMG Champion Juvenile Stakes (Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf) will air on FS2 during a broadcast from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET.

Horse racing from tracks around the world is available to subscribers on Racetrack Television Network (RTN), which can be livestreamed on all devices (computer, tablet and smartphone) and on TV via DISH Network, Amazon Fire and Roku.
