The historic partnership between Churchill Downs and NBC Sports has been extended, ensuring the latter will continue to host the Kentucky Derby on NBC and Peacock through to 2032.

The extension means that NBC will be the first media company to present the prestigious horse racing event in over 30 years.

The extension includes multiplatform rights to the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky Oaks, and Derby and Oaks Day programming, which will be presented on NBC, Peacock, USA Network and additional NBCU platforms.

“As we celebrate the 150th running of the Kentucky Derby, Churchill Downs is proud to extend the relationship with NBC Sports,” said Churchill Downs CEO Bill Carstanjen. “As our media partner for the last 23 years, NBC has artfully captured the most exciting two minutes in sports and the spectacle of the senses that surrounds it.”
