    Both are unnatural.

    "What day is it" and "what day is it today" are very natural.

    The unnumbered sentence is unnatural. Perhaps something like: "During the match he observed his opponent's horse throw its rider."

    Re: which day a week

    What day of the week is it today?

    You will hear "what" in this question, rather than "which", far more frequently in BrE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
