Kentucky Derby Weather


Updated Thursday 5:40 p.m. ET

The long-range forecast for Kentucky Derby and Oaks days looks good, but this Saturday morning is of concern because there's a 90% chance of rain in Louisville starting at 6:00 a.m. and continuing to for several hours. Several Kentucky Derby contenders are scheduled to work that morning.

Based on all we've seen and heard, scheduled for Saturday breezes at Churchill Downs are Danzig Moon, Far Right, Frammento, International Star, Itsaknockout, Madefromlucky, Materiality, Stanford and Tencender. Oaks horses charted to work Saturday are Birdatthewire, Money'soncharlotte and Puca. Over at Keeneland, Nick Zito has had Frammento penciled in for a Saturday workout

Rain could also affect the annual Derby Festival Marathon and Minimarathon set for Saturday morning.
