PROGRAM ALERT: How to watch the races on WAVE 3 News & NBC
Kentucky Derby 144

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - WAVE 3 News and the NBC family of networks are once again your exclusive providers of live race coverage of the Oaks and Derby day cards at Churchill Downs.

On Friday, we'll be with you from the track all day, starting with "Sunrise at the Downs" from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. We'll be back just before 9 a.m. with a full day of racing, plus all the sights, sounds and stories from Kentucky Oaks Day.

We want to remind you that we can't carry a few of the races live, including the Oaks race itself. Don't worry, though; we will bring you the entire Oaks race, along with the track announcer's call, and the presentation of the garland of lilies in the winner's circle -- just about 20 minutes after it actually happens.
