    Horse Racing

    Why does it take 4 hours of pre-Show for 1.5 minutes of racing

    Because there is nothing better on NBC. In all reality, i have no idea. I always wonder the same thing. They show something like six hours of pre-race events that are boring as no other. I just tune in about five minutes before so it doesn't bother me.

    ESPN/ESPN2 at least shows all of the races on the "undercard" to break up the monotony. NBC had an hour and 45 minutes of junk.

    Or maybe the Triple Crown is NBC's Super Bowl. (that's for all the darksiders)

    Belmont is June 7 on ABC, with the actual race probably around 5:30 pm CT.

    Actually the Preakness Stakes goes on from around 10am til 10pm at night the longest racing card of the year.......

    But only the "Big Race" is what the majority of fans care about....
