The Kentucky Derby takes place Saturday, Sept. 5 and will be broadcast on NBC beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET.

This year’s Kentucky Derby marks the 146th anniversary of the annual event. Though this year it was moved from its usual slot on the calendar, the event will still take place at the notable Churchill Downs in Louisville as usual. Location isn’t the only aspect of the Derby that’s staying the same. While the Belmont Stakes were shortened from 1 1/2 miles (12 furlongs) to 1 1/8 miles (9 furlongs), the Kentucky Derby will retain its 1 1/4 miles (10 furlongs) around the track, CBS Sports reports.
With COVID-19 still at large, this year’s event is sure to be memorable. Last year alone, drama ensued when, “Maximum Security crossed the finish line, seeming to have won the race. However, for the first time in the Derby’s 145 year history, the winner was disqualified for impeding other horses and swerving out of his lane. Country House, the second horse to finish, then became the winner,” stated Town and Country Magazine. With so much angst precipitating this year’s event, it’s sure to be one to watch.
