The 2012 Kentucky Derby is set to start at approximately 6:24 p.m. ET, with live television coverage presented by NBC. NBC will have plenty of pre-race coverage, as they hit the airwaves from Churchill Downs at 4:00 p.m. ET on both TV and via live stream.

Bodemeister is still the odds-on favorite to win, but according to CBS.com's panel of experts, Union Rags is the favorite to win the 138th annual run for the roses. Maryland's Done Talking and Went The Day Well are still longshots to win.
