Cancel the Tivo: ESPN Dumps Horse Racing for Home Run Hero

Yesterday I blogged about the dilemma of watching two racing telecasts on Saturday afternoon on different networks. ESPN announced today that it would show the races from Saratoga and Mountaineer Park on their digital network so they could show Barry Bond’s attempt to break the home run record.

So, unless you have premium cable, let’s all watch the Hambletonian, the world’s greatest trotting race, from The Meadowlands on NBC at 3:30 p.m. And cheer for the filly, Pampered Princess!
