It’s May which means that the race for the Triple Crown has officially begun. This Saturday, May 4th is the 145th running of The Kentucky Derby from Churchill Downs, which will be airing on NBC. The good news for cord-cutters is that you can watch every race, even if you don’t have cable or satellite.

After the surprising scratch of favorite Omaha Beach, Trainer Bob Baffert’s Game Winner is the new favorite, followed by Improbable and Roadster — also trained by Baffert. He has trained both American Pharoah and Justify who won the Triple Crown in 2015 and 2018 respectively, after no horse claimed the feat since 1978.

The coverage starts at 12pm ET, with eight live races on NBCSN, followed by NBC Derby Day coverage starting at 2:30pm ET. The 145th running of the Kentucky Derby will begin at 6:45pm ET, following five undercard races as part of NBC coverage.
