The 146th Kentucky Derby will take place on September 5. The race was originally set for May 2, but was rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The race is a lot different this year, as it will be run without fans for health and safety reasons. They originally planned to welcome in 14% of its 2015 record attendance to the event, which is around 23,000 people, but after reevaluating the situation decided it was best for all to keep their doors closed.

The Triple Crown is also in a different order this year, with the Kentucky Derby second instead of first. This year the Belmont Stakes kicked off the trio of races.
