Churchill Downs: Sat. Scratches, muddy, off turf in all but feature

Email

Happy Belmont Day from under the Twin Spires....Early evening rain yesterday has left the main track wet for today's card and resulted in most of the scheduled turf races being moved to the main track, with the exception being the featured Mint Julep.

Track could dry out before post time but there is a chance of thunderstorms throughout the day.

Without further ado:
