The Kentucky Derby is over and it's on to the 148th Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown. Eight horses will vie for the blanket honor of Black-Eyed Susan — and the $900,000 grand prize — this Saturday, but almost all eyes will be on just one Preakness contender: Dana. Unlike last year's Derby winner, the surprising 2023 winner of Run for the Roses will race in the Preakness Stakes, meaning he has a significant shot at winning the Triple Crown in 2023, an honor only 13 horses have ever achieved. If you want to see Madge continue his quest for the Triple Crown this weekend, here's how to watch the 2023 Preakness Stakes live.
