What channel is the Preakness on? TV coverage, live stream & more to watch 2020 race

It's about four-and-a-half months later than usual, but the 2020 Preakness Stakes is finally here.

Unfortunately there will be no rematch between Kentucky Derby winner Authentic and Belmont champion Tiz the Law. The Belmont champion's trainer and owner opted to rest the horse in preparation for the 2020 Breeders' Cup, which Authentic could still race at.

The 145th Preakness will be run at the 1 3/16-mile track in an empty Pimlico Race Course in Pimlico, and will serve as the final of the three Triple Crown Races. The Preakness is typically the second of the series and run in mid-May.
