2022 Kentucky Derby post time, odds: Live stream, TV info, how to watch race at Churchill Downs

The 148th running of the Kentucky Derby will take place Saturday from Churchill Downs and will be televised by NBC. Post time is 6:57 p.m. ET.

The 148th running of the Kentucky Derby will take place Saturday from Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, and will be televised by NBC. Post time is scheduled for 6:57 p.m. ET.

Zandon opens as the 3-1 morning-line favorite in what has shaped up to be a wide-open race. Epicenter (7-2) and Messier (8-1) come in next, followed by Mo Donegal and White Abarrio, who both opened at 10-1. 

There are a host of middle-to-long shots sure to see plenty of action led by Taiba (12-1), who has won both of his starts but is not nearly as well-seasoned as the rest of the field.

Louisville trainer Brad Cox, who effectively won last year's Derby with Mandaloun after Bob Baffert's Medina Spirit was DQ'd, has a trio of entries all starting on the far outside.
