Horse Racing Radio Network (HRRN), the Eclipse Award-winning broadcast organization based in Lexington, Kentucky, and official radio home of the 2016 Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup World Championships, begins more than 15 hours of live Breeders’ Cup programming on Tuesday morning from Santa Anita Park.

HRRN also plans two exciting additions to their broadcast platform in 2016. For the first time, racing fans around the world will have the opportunity to experience the Breeders’ Cup races in Spanish with live coverage provided on the network’s newest platform HRRN en Español at www.hrrnenespanol.com.

Fans in attendance at Santa Anita will be able to follow the action and hear coverage throughout both days with HRRN’s Live Sports Radio available free at HRRN kiosks while supplies last.

HRRN’s Breeders’ Cup week coverage begins Tuesday morning with the first of three Breeders’ Cup Countdown shows hosted live from Santa Anita’s Clockers’ Corner.
