Mike Tirico, who was a jack-of-all-trades at ESPN, has drawn his first horse racing assignment with his new employer, NBC.

Tirico has been named host of NBC’s prime-time coverage of the 2016 Breeders’ Cup World Championships on Saturday, Nov. 5, from Santa Anita.
“What a great event and venue for my maiden voyage with our incredibly talented horse racing team,” Tirico said in a statement. “I look forward to working with them at one of the premier events on the thoroughbred calendar. I’ve always enjoyed watching the Breeders’ Cup cap the year and set the storylines for the following spring. Now I can’t wait to experience that in person for the first time.”
California Chrome, the 2014 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, leads the field in the 33rd Breeders’ Cup Classic, which airs at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 5.
