Watch Kentucky Derby 2016 live online with NBC streaming

Derby Day is here, and this is how you can watch it live online.

The 142nd running of the Kentucky Derby is set to get underway on Saturday evening, with a post time of 6:34 p.m. ET. The big race will come after an entire day's worth of undercard races, and all eyes will be on Nyquist, the current betting favorite. Sired by Uncle Mo, Nyquist has yet to lose and has three Grade 1 stakes race wins to his name, including the Breeders' Cup Juvenile in October.

In 2016, Nyquist has raced just twice, earning a narrow victory over Exaggerator in the Grade 2 San Vicente Stakes in February and a near-start-to-finish victory at the Florida Derby in  April. Mohaymen, then undefeated and expected to give Nyquist his biggest challenge yet, had nothing to offer Nyquist and finished fourth. Fellow Kentucky Derby entrant, Majesto, finished second in that race. Exaggerator is also a fellow Kentucky Derby entrant on Sunday.

Race coverage on the day got underway at noon, and it was all available via NBC Sports Live Extra online. NBCSN carried the television coverage up until 4 p.m., at which point it shifted to NBC. The second-biggest race of the day, the Grade 1 Woodford Reserve Turf Stakes, is scheduled for 5:25 p.m.
