The second leg of the Triple Crown in horse racing takes place on Saturday with Always Dreaming looking to make it two-straight. After winning the Kentucky Derby several weekends ago, Always Dreaming now has a chance to move closer to making history with a Preakness Stakes 2017 victory. The race emanates from Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland with thousands expected to attend, and thousands more watching the race live on television or online. Here's a look at the latest details for the race, including what time and TV channel to watch Preakness Stakes 2017 on, as well as the live streaming option and contender odds.

Latest contender odds

A total of 10 horses will make up the field for today's Preakness Stakes race. Always Dreaming will be one that most spectators are watching as they hope the horse owned by Brooklyn Boyz Stables takes the win. With Todd Pletcher as its trainer and John Velazquez the jockey, it seems this horse could be a repeat winner today. If it does so, that puts the thoroughbred in line for a Triple Crown win. If that happens, the horse would join 2015's American Pharoah -- who accomplished the feat after a 37-year drought.
