Are you trying to plan your Saturday? Do you want to see the Preakness? I need help?

Here’s what you need to know. The official start time of the second leg of the triple crown has been a bit of a moving target. Four different times have been mentioned, but all within 15 minutes of each other. The reality is that NBC will ultimately decide when the race begins.

Doors will open at 4:01 pm if you are in Los Angeles.

It is 7:01 pm in Baltimore and throughout the Eastern Time Zone.

If you are in the Midwest and Central Time Zone, like Chicago, go back one hour and set it to 6:01 p.m.

And finally, if you’re in the Mountain time zone, like Denver, it’s 5:01 p.m.

But be careful: You might want to start watching your local NBC affiliate about 15 minutes before the race is scheduled to start, just to be safe. Rain is expected Saturday, so officials could make some adjustments on the fly and change the time again.

Now, if you’re really into racing, you can start your coverage with FanDuel TV at 7:30 a.m. in Los Angeles or 10:30 a.m. in Baltimore. Your coverage will air throughout the day, but may not always be live. Mini-NBC, known as CNBC, will begin coverage at 10:30 am in Los Angeles and at 1:30 pm in Baltimore. The big network takes over three hours later (1:30 p.m. PDT). All coverage can be streamed live on Peacock.

If you forgot which station NBC is, remember it’s Channel 4 in Los Angeles and New York, Channel 5 in Chicago, Channel 9 in Denver, and Channel 11 in Baltimore.

The day at Pimlico is full of racing on offer, and if you choose the right network, you’ll be able to watch them too. And to keep things simple, we’ll use Pacific times.

So that’s the lineup. A victory for Mystik Dan would set up a possible Triple Crown at the Belmont, which is actually in Saratoga this year, in three weeks.
