With the 147th Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve in the books, the horse racing world looks ahead to the Preakness Stakes on May 15 at Pimlico to see if Derby winner Medina Spirit can capture the second leg of the Triple Crown against what is shaping up to be a formidable field. In the meantime, the action at Belmont Park and Churchill Downs kicks into high gear this weekend while tracks such as Santa Anita Park and Gulfstream Park also continue on with their spring/summer meets.

Racing at Belmont Park and Churchill Downs will be featured on “America’s Day at the Races” for a four-day span starting Thursday. The NYRA-produced show presented by Claiborne Farm and America’s Best Racing will air on FS1 and FS2 – check the below schedule for air times.
