The 146th Run for The Roses is today. Here’s how to watch, enter a free contest for $146,000 in prizes, and more!

UPDATE: Authentic pulled off the stunning upset, beating out Tiz The Law, who finished second.

The 146th Kentucky Derby is scheduled for Saturday, September 5, and will have a post time of 7:01 p.m. live from Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. It will be broadcast live on NBC stations across America beginning at 2:30 p.m., with all the preliminary races also being shown as well. You can also live stream the race from here.

Tiz The Law won the Belmont Stakes, and has looked unstoppable as of late in the lead-up to today’s contest. He’s 4-0 this season, cruising to victory by 3.75 lengths at the Belmont, and then at the Travers Stakes at Saratoga by 5.5. With over $2 million in earnings just this season, he’s the favorite for a reason.

But with co-favorites Honor A.P. and Authentic also breaking from as far as the rail as possible, watch the horses on the far outside as they leave the starting gate. How the three on the outside make it down the front stretch could be crucial in determining who goes home with the second leg of the Triple Crown in 2020.

And if you’re not a big horse bettor, that can’t stop you from winning at DraftKings Sportsbook, whose free pool has $146,000 on offer for those that can answer eight questions about the race correctly.
