Ride TV brings nationwide audience to Ruidoso Downs Triple Crown races
Fans of the triple crown races at Ruidoso Downs Race Track that live throughout the nation will have the opportunity to watch the Ruidoso, Rainbow, and All American Futurity and Derby trials and finals this summer on RIDE TV, channel 248 on Dish Network, Armstrong, and Windstream cable subscribers throughout the United States. RIDE TV is a 24-hour, high-definition television network that showcases the horse culture and lifestyle. The network’s programming features shows all about horses. While rodeos and other sporting programs have been featured, this is the first effort to display quarter horse racing to their viewers.
“Our job will be to introduce the quarter horse triple crown to our viewers,” Anthony Lucia said. He along with longtime racing color commentator Tom Dawson will be the hosts of the daylong broadcasts that begin with opening day, May 27 at Ruidoso Downs.
“While Tom has the insight of years of experience watching the trials, I will come at it a little differently,” Anthony said. “We are introducing thousands of our regular viewers to the futurity and derby trials and so I’ll be asking questions of those involved in the stakes races and hopefully getting answers that someone at home watching might want to know.”...more
