NBC Sports Network to air Spring Horse Races

“While ESPN is the self-titled World Wide Leader, the congestion of programing on their family of network tends to relegate the niche sports to the proverbial back-of-the-line in terms of resources and promotion. The NHL moved to Versus from ESPN and found a good home. MLS will do the same this year after many years of appearing on ESPN.”
