Beginning June 18 at 8:30 a.m. ET, NBC Sports presents daily live coverage of the Royal Meeting at Ascot on NBCSN. Daily telecasts of the full five-day Royal Meeting will air on NBCSN through June 21, and the event culminates on NBC June 22, starting at 9 a.m. ET. In total, NBC Sports will present 22 hours of coverage over the five-day stretch.
Handicapper/analyst Eddie Olczyk and Britney Eurton will make their debuts with the first telecast, with Olczyk attending his first Royal Meeting and Eurton making her NBC debut during her fourth visit to Royal Ascot. They will provide American audiences a closer look at the lively world of betting the races in the United Kingdom and share insight for the American bettor, who will have the opportunity to bet all of the races from Ascot this year. Olczyk and Eurton will be joined by international horse racing analyst Nick Luck and NBC News' Dylan Dreyer, who will be part of the Friday and Saturday broadcasts. On Friday morning, June 21, Dreyer will report live from Ascot on TODAY. Dreyer's weekend coverage will include access to the Royal Enclosure, one of the most exclusive and prestigious areas of access for the event.
In addition, the event is highlighted by the attendance of Queen Elizabeth II, who arrives each day promptly at 9 a.m. ET in a Royal Procession of carriages. She has attended Royal Ascot every year since 1945.
