Kentucky Derby weather forecast: Lots of blues skies and sunshine on race day

Last year's Kentucky Derby was wet and ran in the mud — looks like 2014 has better weather in store for the Run for the Roses.

The Kentucky Derby is more than just the "fastest two minutes in sports" that we witness the first Saturday afternoon each May, it is an all-day event with several other horse races going on that lead up to the run for the roses.

The first race of the day starts 10:30 a.m. ET with the Kentucky Derby at 6:24 p.m. The good news for all of these races is the weather will not be a problem for horses, jockeys or those attending the race. Your complete weather forecast is found below.
