Arkansas Derby 2011: Track Conditions At Oaklawn Remain Favorable

On Saturday at the Oaklawn Park Race Track, the weather doesn't figure to get in the way of the Arkansas Derby. According to weather.com, the outlook is 67 and sunny in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

There are still no reported scratches for the Arkansas Derby, the 11th of 12 scheduled races at Oaklawn on Saturday, but Daily Racing Form is noting one change:

The lone change at this point is an overweight. Make the No. 2, Nehro, plus 2.

Nehro entered Friday with 5-to-1 odds. As of 4:45 p.m. ET (3:45 p.m. local time), the seventh race hasn't yet run, so the Arkansas Derby still figures to be a couple of hours away.

You can see the latest results at the Oaklawn Park Race Track's official web site. And for more on the world of horse racing, be sure to check out SB Nation's horse racing blog, And Down The Stretch They Come.
