There's some severe weather in Louisville on the day before Derby day. Pat Forde is at Churchill Downs and doesn't think this will go well:
Churchill has suspended the card and asked people in the infield "to calmly exit" due to impending thunderstorm. Welcome to anarchy.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) May 4, 2012
Humongous, plastered crowd here. If they think they're getting people to do anything in an orderly fashion, good luck.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) May 4, 2012
Joe Reedy tweeted a picture of the crowd, and, well, yeah, that might not be the most cooperative bunch.
As of now, it's unclear whether or not the Kentucky Oaks is going to happen: Reedy said that there's a "weather delay," so it looks like the race will take place behind schedule. And if they do race, it'll be kinda muddy.
