    Ratings were up with the tv broadcasting

    The race portion of the Preakness Stakes broadcast on NBC-TV on Saturday drew a 5.9 rating, according to NBC, up 13 percent over the rating for the race portion of the broadcast last year and the highest rating since 2009.

    NBC said that the rating translated into 9.7 million viewers. The race portion of the broadcast, from 5:50 p.m. Eastern to 6:39, had a 14 share this year, compared to a 13 last year, NBC said, up 7.7 percent.

    Share measures the percentage of televisions in use at the time that are tuned to a broadcast.
    The rating for the race portion of the Kentucky Derby broadcast two weeks before the Preakness was up 8 percent, tying for the second highest since 1990. That broadcast had 16.2 million viewers, according to NBC.
