    Still a little early for an accurate weather forecast. I'm going rain or shine but won't take the forecast serious until about Thursday.

    I will probably go either way too, but just won't tailgate.

    The weather is not looking great but it should be a great weekend anyways. The Ashland on Saturday will feature some serious Oaks contenders. I don't know if any horse could beat R Heat Lightning right now though.

    Anyone hitting up Keeneland today? Rain, snow, or sunshine, I'm going.

    We went also. Nasty weather early, but the sun came out just in time. It was a beautiful day and not too crowded. I didn't cash a ticket but still had a good time.

    I believe I brought this up last year...but here I go again. People, enjoy Keeneland, enjoy tailgating, but PLEASE bring garbage bags! Hated leaving yesterday and seeing all the garbage left on the ground by patrons. Keeneland is a first class place, so use some class!

    You got that right. The Derby is now wide open and is shaping up for a very good bettor's race.

    The Derby is always pretty much open. Not many favorites win. If you are good enough to qualify, anything can happen. Can't wait!

    Agreed. Too bad the neanderthals can't figure it out.
