It was chilly Thursday morning in Louisville, but finally it was clear and sunny. Lots of the Kentucky Derby and Oaks contenders were out this morning, but there were no timed works. Entries for the Derby were taken and post positions drawn yesterday and are available .

Midnight Interlude galloped once around the main track under exercise rider Dana Barnes during the training period reserved for Oaks and Derby horses. Trainer Bob Baffert said the War Chant colt is doing well. "I just hope we don't get a sloppy racetrack and we have a good finish and have a chance for the best horse to win," he said.
