NBC, Breeders' Cup Officials Keen On Santa Anita As Future Host Site
Published November 1, 2013
HERE TO STAY: SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL's Liz Mullen reports NBC "has encouraged Breeders' Cup officials to find a permanent site for the annual event, preferably in Southern California." Miller has stated that NBC "would like the event to remain in Southern California so that the network can take advantage of the daylight and weather on the West Coast and continue to broadcast the final race, the Breeders' Cup Classic, live at 8 p.m. ET." NBC has a contract to televise the event through '15. Fravel said of having a permanent host, "That is one of the things we have kicked around, but I am not going to predict what we are going to do on that" (SPORTSBUSINESS JOURNAL, 10/28 issue).
