Will Derby be Run on an Off Track?

There may be one thing more unpredictable than how a horse will run. That is, of course, the weather.

The National Weather Service 10-day forecast was extended to May 5 this morning, and it shows a 60% chance of showers in Louisville, Ky., on the first Saturday in May.

As the Derby contenders train toward the race, opinions of them will change. Undoubtedly, the forecast will change many times over the course of the next 10 days, too.

Right now, the weather service is calling for a gorgeous Kentucky Oaks day, sunny and a high of 77. The temperature stays the same for Kentucky Derby day, but there is a 60% chance of showers for the area.

Keep posted.
