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 Wednesday, August 23 program at Saratoga has 10 races on the agenda including the $100,000 John’s Call Stakes for three-year-olds and upward which have not won a graded stakes race on the turf in 2017 going a mile and five-eighths on the Mellon Turf Course.
