The Jockey Club Tour on FOX will showcase its last races of the year—the Ricoh Woodbine Mile and the Northern Dancer Turf—on Sunday from Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto. The telecast will air from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time (3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Mountain Time) on FOX Sports 1, and FOX Sports Go. In Canada, TSN2 will carry the final full hour of the FOX feed.

The Ricoh Woodbine Mile (G1), a Breeders’ Cup Challenge Series “Win and You’re In” race, is run at 1 mile on the turf for 3-year-olds and older and carries a $1 million purse. The Northern Dancer Turf (G1), also for 3-year-olds and older, is run at 1½ miles on the turf and carries a $300,000 purse.

Once again, the on-air duties will be handled by Greg Wolf, Richard Migliore, Andy Serling, Simon Bray, and Alyssa Ali.

“The Woodbine Mile and Northern Dancer will feature some of the best older turf horses in North America,” said Jason Wilson, president, TJC Media Ventures. “These are the stars of our sport and several of them will be competing in the Breeders’ Cup.”

The telecast will include a feature on historic performances by Northern Dancer and Secretariat at Woodbine as well as a “Stars of Tomorrow” segment on Skye Chernetz, a 21-year-old female jockey who is competing at Woodbine.
