The horse racing world turns its attention to Baltimore's Pimlico Race Course for the 138th Preakness Stakes. The second leg of the Triple Crown is scheduled for Saturday afternoon, with a post time at 6:20 p.m. ET. Kentucky Derby winner Orb is the even money favorite in the nine-horse field. A win Saturday would give Orb a chance to win the first Triple Crown since 1978 three weeks later at the Belmont Stakes.
NBC Sports is once again providing television coverage of the Preakness Stakes. Network coverage begins at 4:30 p.m. Saturday live from Pimlico. Unlike the Kentucky Derby, there is no pre-race show on the NBC Sports Network.
The Horse Racing Radio Network will provide online radio coverage of the event, beginning with undercard races at 2 p.m. and shifting into full-on Preakness mode at 5 p.m.
A mobile app with odds, race information, and an event schedule is available at Preakness.com.
