A bit of a rarity in that outside of just HRTV and TVG covering Saturday July 30th's racing at Saratoga with the Jim Dandy and Diana - Versus will have an hour-long coverage too.

Sunday in addition to TVG with Monmouth coverage so too will ABC Sports be broadcasting this year's Grade 1 $1M Haskell Invitational.

Official site: 44th Edition of the Haskell Invitational (http://www.monmouthpark.com/haskell/)

Fields picked for the Diana and Jim Dandy at Saratoga. The Diana looks like a solid field with plenty of turf-loving foreign breds. Last year Mike Smith was in to ride the winner as was "10" CHRB-member Bo Derek.
