In addition to a multi-year stint as a host and racing analyst on TVG, Lyons saddled 1995 Breeder’s Cup Sprint (G1) winner Desert Stormer. He also bought and campaigned Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner Castledale. He’s currently a bloodstock agent and the host of a weekly radio show in Lexington, Kentucky.

The Friday, August 11 program at Saratoga has 10 races on the card including the $100,000 Tale of the Cat Stakes for three-year-olds and up that have not won a graded stakes race in 2017 to be contested at a six-furlong trip on the main track.

Frank will be giving out his picks FREE of charge for the duration of Saratoga’s 2017 summer meet. Click HERE to see who he likes on Friday!
