All three Triple Crown races will be televised by NBC

NBC will broadcast all three jewels of horse racing's prestigious Triple Crown, renewing the rights to the Preakness and reacquiring rights to the Belmont Stakes. As previously announced, NBC and Churchill Downs Inc. renewed rights to the Kentucky Derby. This marks the first time that all three races will be on one network since NBC aired them in 2005. Like NBC's agreement with Churchill Downs, the deals announced Tuesday give NBC exclusive rights to the Preakness and Belmont through 2015. The agreements include coverage of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes and other Preakness Day and Belmont Day programming on Versus.
