HDNet said Tuesday that it will air exclusive live HD coverage of "Big Cap Day" at California’s Santa Anita Park Saturday, March 6, beginning at 6 p.m. EST.
The $1 million Santa Anita Handicap, the $350,000 Frank E. Kilroe Mile and the $200,000 San Rafael Stakes will be among the featured races on one of horse racing’s most prestigious days.
"High-definition television and horse racing are a perfect fit," HDNet cofounder and president Mark Cuban said in a prepared statement. "HDNet’s coverage of these races will show viewers the beauty and excitement of horse racing in a way that only 1080i [interlaced] HDTV can achieve."
