ESPN'S KENNY MAYNE, HANK GOLDBERG JOIN CITGO RACING TO THE KENTUCKY DERBY

Nine-Program Series Features 17 Major Derby Preps and Triple Crown Special on ESPN and ESPN2 Beginning February 15

This year's Citgo Racing to the Kentucky Derby program on ESPN and ESPN2, a nine-show series providing comprehensive coverage of key VISA Triple Crown prep races, will feature ESPN's Kenny Mayne as host and Hank Goldberg as a reporter. Mayne and Goldberg will be teamed with analyst Randy Moss and reporter Kenny Rice. Mayne serves as a horseracing columnist for ESPN.com and is the emcee of the sport's Eclipse Awards, which he will be hosting for the fourth straight year next Monday at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. In addition, Mayne has co-anchored SportsCenter and most recently completed his first year on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown with his weekly segment, “The Mayne Event.”

Goldberg, who covers the NFL as well as horseracing for ESPN, hosts a popular sports talk radio show on WQAM in Miami, and can often be found at South Florida racing venues Gulfstream Park and Calder Race Course.

Citgo Racing to the Kentucky Derby begins with live coverage of the Grade I Fountain of Youth Stakes and the Grade II Hutcheson Stakes from Florida’s Gulfstream Park on February 15. In all, it will present 17 races, including 13 that will air live. In 2002, the series featured 14 races, six of which were live. Among the 2003 highlights will be live telecasts of four Grade I races: the Fountain of Youth Stakes, the Florida Derby, the Santa Anita Derby and the Wood Memorial.

The series also features seven Grade II events and four Grade III stakes. Races will be shown from 11 different venues in seven different states. The series culminates with a Triple Crown special, airing on April 27, just six days prior to the 129th "Run for the Roses" at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.

"Kenny is passionate about horseracing, and he appeals to a broad range of sports fans," said Chip Campbell, NTRA senior vice president -- television and sponsorship. "Hank is a real pro who knows the ins-and-outs of the game like few others."

The 2003 schedule for Citgo Racing to the Kentucky Derby appears below.
