Kentucky Derby Prep races on NBC in 2016

The 2016 NBC horse racing schedule has been announced including The Road to the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Derby Champion Series. In 2016 NBC Sports showcased six races on four consecutive weekends of LIVE racing. The Live racing broadcast runs March 30th through April 13th on the NBC family of networks as part of an agreement between NBC, racetracks and the Jockey Club.

Jockey Club to co-fund broadcasts

The Jockey Club has taken on an initiative to co-fund the Road to Kentucky Derby broadcasts as part of a five year plan to broaden the public profile of thoroughbred horse racing . This is recommendation comes from a report prepared for the Jockey Club by McKinsey and Company back in 2011.

Kentucky Derby Championship Series

With the new Kentucky Derby Points System, it's hard to say how many races NBC Sports will televise for 2016 Kentucky Derby Betting. The Road to the Kentucky Derby schedule gets underway with the Norfolk at Santa Anita starting before the 2014 Breeders' Cup World Championships and concludes with the Southwest at Oaklawn Park.

The Derby Championship Series will start with the Risen Star stakes at Fair Grounds in Louisiana for the first leg of the prep race series, finishing with the Sunland Derby at Sunland Park in New Mexico. The second leg of the Kentucky Derby Championship Series opens with the Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park in Florida and finishes with the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland in Kentucky.

Jockey Club spokesperson Bob Curran said that the deal with NBC is for one year with NBC having the ability to pick up the option for a second year. Of course picking up a second year will depend on ratings and the public showing enough interest in live Kentucky Derby Prep racing on the road to the roses.

"We hope it is the beginning of a longer-term relationship," Curran said.
