In what is being called one of the biggest blunders in recent horse racing television coverage by many insiders, Jason Blewitt was let go by NYRA.
No official reason was given, and the parting of ways appeared both sudden and unexpected.
Jason has done a fine job for NYRA for several years, and was a centerpiece and anchor of their extended television coverage launched during the 2016 Saratoga meet. Jason was a large part of the success of that extended coverage. TVG, XBTV, NBC Sports, and ESPN, if you are not reading this, and you certainly should be,
Jason Blewitt is knowledgeable, engaging, professional, and a gentleman. He would be an asset to any team. I’m confidant Jason will land on his feet and he surely deserves too. Go get em Jason!
