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 Thursday, August 31 program at Saratoga Race Course has 10 races on tap including the $100,000 P.G. Johnson Stakes for two-year-old fillies going a mile and a sixteenth on the inner turf course.
