Ortuzar To Debut First LA-Based Spanish-Language Radio Show

Hispanic racing ambassador George Ortuzar

Santa Anita's popular Hispanic racing ambassador, George Ortuzar, will host LA's first-ever Spanish speaking horseracing show beginning this Sunday, March 11, on ESPN Radio KWKW, AM 1330, from 7 to 8 a.m. PT.  Titled “La Mejor Apuesta” (The Best Bet), the show will concentrate on racing here in Southern California and around the country.

Ortuzar, who is known to thousands of Southland racing fans via his television work at the now-shuttered Hollywood Park, is also well known to many thousands of Hispanic viewers courtesy of his high energy automotive infomercials that have appeared in several markets over the past 20 years.  A former jockey agent, Ortuzar currently serves as a valued member of Santa Anita's marketing efforts in both English and Spanish.

A passionate racing fan, Ortuzar brings enthusiasm and energy to his audience and he'll be joined on-air each Saturday by Venezuelan handicapper, “Omega.”

With “La Mejor Apuesta” airing on America's largest Spanish speaking radio station, KWKW, it will no doubt reach a wide and varied audience each week and it will also be available worldwide via the internet on radiodeportes.com.
