Kentucky Rain

2013 Kentucky Derby rain

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.

My thoughts exactly as I flip through 125 channels, hard to find WD, but hours of car racing for Chrissakes.
Why does NBC have golf on and not the Derby coverage??? Are we not going to be able to see? I wasn't even able to watch Wise Dan win!
