Larry Collmus, known as the "Voice of the Triple Crown" for NBC Sports, will call the 11th race Friday Night at the Meadowlands. Collmus has been a fixture, narrating the thoroughbred racing landscape for over 25 years and will tackle the Standardbreds Friday night.
"I'm looking forward to seeing the New Meadowlands for the first time after calling many thoroughbred races in the original facility. This will be my first harness call in about 20 years and it should be a lot of fun, so long as I don't screw it up!" said Collumus.
Prior to landing the announcers role in describing the greatest two minutes in sports, Collmus was a staple in the Garden State, calling the races at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, NJ, since 1994. It was there that he called his first Haskell Invitational, won by the immortal Holy Bull. Collmus' fans will be able to hear him call the Haskell again in 2014, this time for the national broadcast of the event on NBC.
In additional to calling the 11th race Friday night, Collmus will join Ken Warkentin as his In The Sulky Guest on The Meadowlands television show. (Meadowlands)
