Kentucky Derby 2020 Live Streaming: The betting odds on Belmont Stakes winner Tiz the Law to win Saturday’s Kentucky Derby continue to show the colt as a prohibitive favorite.
The Kentucky Derby main race is on Saturday, 2nd May 2020 from Churchill Downs, Louisville, KY. It starts at 2:30 and ends at 7:30 p.m.
Churchill Downs track handicapper Mike Battaglia established Tiz the Law as a 3-5 favorite to win the 146th Run for the Roses, and the pari-mutuel odds show that bettors agree. In the live betting at 11 a.m. CDT, the odds on Tiz the Law winning Saturday’s Run for the Roses were 4-5.
The odds for the three colts behind Tiz the Law in the betting have held steady over the past hour, too, with Honor A.P. at 8-1, Authentic at 9-1 and Thousand Words at 10-1.
Winning Impression, the longest of the long shots with bettors, is not quite as long as he was an hour ago, moving from 52-1 to 51-1.
Other odds moving in the past hour have been Necker Island going from 50-1 to 49-1 and Sole Volante from 29-1 to 30-1.
Post time for the Kentucky Derby is scheduled for 6:01 p.m. CDT Saturday. NBC’s televised coverage from Louisville, Kentucky, will start at 1:30 p.m.
As with all horse races, the safety of the horses taking part is always a primary concern, and here at least as a flat race you might expect the Kentucky Derby to be less injurious to horses than more challenging jump based courses such as of the Grand National at Aintree in the United Kingson, and indeed there have been less equine fatalities here over the years (only 5 as compared to 70, nowhere near enough to be countered by the Grand National’s 40 year head start).
Now, the iconic Kentucky Derby, which was slated to be run as the first leg of the Triple Crown on May 2, will take place on Saturday and serve as the second leg of the Triple Crown.

In an already unconventional year for horse racing, one of the sport’s longest-running and well known events will take place four months later than originally planned.
The 2020 Kentucky Derby, which was moved from the first Saturday in May to the first Saturday in September (Sept. 5, 2:30 p.m. ET, NBC) will be the race’s 146th edition—and possibly its most unique, since Churchill Downs will be fanless and jockeys will follow strict COVID-19 precautions, among other things.
The 146th Kentucky Derby will air on Saturday, Sept. 5 starting at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC as well as NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app. Post time is set for approximately 7:01 p.m. ET. Click here to stream the 2020 Kentucky Derby live starting at 2:30p ET.
The Kentucky Derby is traditionally the first leg of the American Triple Crown of horse racing. It is historically run on the first Saturday in May, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Kentucky Derby was postponed from Saturday, May 2 to Saturday, Sept. 5.
First run in 1875, this 1 1/4 mile—or 10 furlongs—race runs on the dirt track at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, where it has been held since its inaugural running in 1875.
Only 3-year-old Thoroughbreds can qualify for the Kentucky Derby. Eligible horses compete in the Race to the Kentucky Derby, a series of 35 races around the world. Horses win points for finishing in the top four spots, and the 20 horses with the most points at the end of the series gain entry into the Derby.
