The second-biggest race of the Spring Churchill Downs meet is on Friday. The $1.5 million Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks takes the best three-year-old fillies in the world on the day before the Kentucky Derby.

All Oaks Day races will be televised on the USA Network, with coverage beginning at 1 p.m. ET thru the running until the Kentucky Oaks, which is the 11th race of the day. The Kentucky Oaks has a scheduled post time of 5:51 p.m. ET, but expect the horses to not get into the chutes until a few minutes later to account for any last minute wagering.

You can also livestream the event on NBC Sports’s website if you have a cable or streaming service login. If you don’t have a cable login to access NBC Sports Network, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream it.

You can also download the Twin Spires app for any Roku-enabled device, and you’ll be able to watch the Kentucky Oaks live.
