I believe the big ticket item for the weekend will be the heavy rain for the Kentucky Derby….. Not sure which contender is a mudder, (a horse that runs well in the mud) but look for a sloppy race track. Could be a record breaker for the Derby too. Their highest rainfall was 2.3″ in 1918, but this year, they could pick up 2 to 4 inches. I know they will run in the race… but they will not run if there is any lightning… which there may be come Saturday.
