The track was fast and the weather was clear and sunny on Wednesday morning in Louisville before the 2013 Kentucky Derby. It started a bit cool but by the time the Kentucky Derby horses came out for their special work time, it had warmed up nicely. All of the Kentucky Derby contenders on the grounds, except Lines of Battle who is in quarantine, were out this morning. Entries will be taken and post positions will be drawn this afternoon at 5pm.
Since I had 14 horses featured yesterday, first up will be the 4 new ones then the rest in aphabetical order.
