Kentucky Derby and Horse Racing at The Downey Profile®

Fast and Firm for Breeders' Cup?


It will depend on how much rain we get on Thursday.

Thursday looks to be a wet one in Louisville, but there's little or no chance of rain otherwise through Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

The forecast says there's no chance of rain Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday--and only a 10% chance on Saturday. But on Thursday, there's a 70% probability of wet stuff. The local weather report says "showers" are likely, and that there's a slight chance of thunderstorms.

High temperatures: 67 on Tuesday with sun; 70 on Wednesday with sun; 51 on Thursday; 60 on Friday with sun; and 62 on Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds.
