The Kentucky Derby is the main course, but there are plenty of appetizers on tap for Churchill Downs on Saturday.

Counting the 145th Run for the Roses, there are 14 races scheduled for Saturday, including several graded stakes. NBC Sports Network will have coverage of the undercard races from Noon to 2:30 p.m. ET, and then coverage will switch over to NBC for more undercard races and the Kentucky Derby (6:50 p.m. ET).

If you don’t cable, you can watch a live stream of the Derby and all the televised undercard races on your computer, phone or streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:

FuboTV

NBC (live in select markets) and NBC Sports Network are two of 85-plus live TV channels included in the main FuboTV bundle, which is largely tailored towards sports.

If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as a 72-hour look-back feature, which allows you to watch the race (and other programs) on-demand within three days of its conclusion, even if you don’t record it.

2019 Kentucky Derby Undercard Preview

The biggest of the undercard races–at least from a monetary perspective–is the $1 million Grade 1 Turf Classic, which immediately precedes the Kentucky Derby.

The favorite in that race is Bricks and Mortar. After a 15-month layoff following the conclusion of the 2017 season, the five-year-old horse has won both of his races this year, taking down the Grade-1 Pegasus World Cup Turf Invitational in January and the Grade-2 Muniz Handicap in March.

“He missed most of the year last year, and we got him back in the allowance race at the end of the year and he ran so well,” said trainer Chad Brown. “We always thought a lot of the horse—his race record speaks for itself. We were lucky enough to get him in the allowance race and get him into the Pegasus, and he ran super.”

Brown has three horses running the Turf Classic, and all three are considered strong contenders. In addition to Bricks and Mortar, he has Raging Bull, the winner of the Grade-1 Hollywood Derby in December, and Ticonderoga, who is coming off a couple wins in allowance races.

Markitoff and Synchrony, who finished second and third to Bricks and Mortar in the aforementioned Muniz Handicap, should also prove to be strong contenders, so it figures to be a potentially wide-open Turf Classic.

The oddsmakers’ favorites in the other big undercard races are as follows: Marley’s Freedom in the $500,000 Grade-1 Humana Distaff, Mitole in the $500,000 Grade-1 Churchill Downs Stakes, Instagrand in the $400,000 Grade-3 Pat Day Mile, A Thread of Blue in the $400,000 Grade-2 American Turf, and Precieuse in the $400,000 Grade-2 Distaff Turf Mile
