Riders Up: The World's First Sports Bubble
1/ST FILMS ‘Riders Up’ premiers on NBC Sports this weekend!
Riders Up will air on NBCSN on Friday, October 2 at 3:00pm PT. A second airing of the documentary will take place on NBCSN on Saturday, October 3 at 9:30am PT, preceding the live broadcast of the 145th Preakness Stakes on NBC at 1:30pm PT.
“Riders Up” highlights how the horseracing community at Santa Anita Park came together within days of the original coronavirus pandemic lockdown to form a self-contained ecosystem that allowed hundreds of backstretch workers, jockeys and essential racing personnel to keep the horses safe and active while protecting themselves, their livelihoods and the community.
