Preakness Stakes 2017: Start time, TV channel, post-position draw and live stream info
The second leg of the Triple Crown takes place this Saturday at the 2017 Preakness Stakes as Always Dreaming looks to build on his winning performance at the Kentucky Derby. The busy day at Pimlico Race Track in Baltimore will finish with the race everyone is looking forward to at approximately 6:45 p.m.
Always Dreaming, fresh off his win at the Kentucky Derby, is considered the overwhelming favorite, given 10-to-11 odds by Bovada before the full field is announced. Classic Empire, who was expected to contend with Always Dreaming at Churchill Downs, is considered the most likely horse to challenge Always Dreaming at Pimlico.
The Preakness will be televised on NBC, but you can also stream the race on NBC Sports Live and the NBC Sports app.
The draw for the 10-horse field at the Preakness will take place Wednesday at 5 p.m. After the draw, betting lines and odds should become more clear ahead of Saturday’s race.
