After joining the TVG broadcast team for select days this summer, Larry Collmus will move into an expanded role at America’s horse racing network. Best known as the voice of the Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup on NBC, Collmus will be covering the races from Gulfstream Park this winter as well as joining in on additional broadcasts.
“I have really enjoyed working with the great folks at TVG and doing something new besides race calling has been a fun experience,” said Collmus. “I’m looking forward to expanding this relationship and also returning to Gulfstream where I called races for ten years. It’ll be a fun – and warm – winter!”
In addition to his time at Gulfstream Park from 2006 through 2017, Collmus has been the track announcer at major tracks across the country including the NYRA circuit, Monmouth Park and Del Mar, and has worked as the race caller for NBC Sports’ coverage of the Triple Crown since 2011 and the Breeders’ Cup since 2012. He will be reprising his role as the announcer for the Breeders’ Cup which will be held at Del Mar November 5-6.
International expert Adam McGrath, formerly a host at Racing.com with years of experience in Australia, has also joined the TVG talent roster and will be adding his expert insights into coverage of international racing. McGrath currently resides in Ohio but will be relocating to Los Angeles in the new year.
“We are thrilled to continue to bring world class talent to expand our roster,” said Kevin Grigsby, TVG Executive Producer. “Larry brought so much to our coverage this summer at Monmouth Park and I am looking forward to watching his insights from Gulfstream Park and Andrew’s global expertise in our coverage of international racing.”
