Stuck at work on Saturday evening? Can't get to a television, restaurant or bar to watch the 2012 Kentucky Derby? Have no fear: I'm here to help. The Kentucky Derby, like most major sporting events now, can be viewed online live at NBC Sports' official website. Coverage online won't go live until 4:00 p.m. ET, 3:00 p.m. CT, though.
As you may already know, festivities at Churchill Downs are a day-long event, with activities starting off early on Saturday morning. You can catch some of the earlier races and festivities at twinspires, one of Churchill Downs' companies.
Post time for the Kentucky Derby is scheduled for 5:24 p.m. CT, so be sure to head over to NBC's official website to watch the race live online. Of course, you can watch it on your television sets as well, as NBC will cover the event live, starting at 3:00 p.m. CT.
