The skies over Louisville were gray and forboding as Kentucky Derby
Day began. As soon as racing began rain fell forcing patrons to find
cover and horses to run in rain-soaked conditions. The Churchill tracks
which started the racing day as fast and firm where quickly downgraded
to sloppy and yielding. Many Derby runners were facing a wet
track for the first time as well as 10 furlongs. In this video see how
the day began before racing's biggest day.
