If you couldn’t cop tickets to Thursday night’s Central Park Grand Prix (at a cost of $275 per ticket) not to worry. NBC Sports Network will broadcast the event live, most likely giving you an even better view than the pricey seats would afford.
This broadcast will mark the first time an equestrian sport has been shown live in a primetime slot on a major sports network, and by watching you can help show the television industry how much we all want to see horses on TV.
Riders in the $210,000 Central Park Grand Prix include some of the U.S.’s best, including Kent Farrington, McLain Ward, Laura Kraut, Jessica Springsteen, Georgina Bloomberg, Charlie Jayne and others.
Count me in! I’ll be cheering from my armchair for sure.
