If the latest Louisville weather forecast holds up, the Churchill Downs track may not be as muddy as first believed come race time Saturday evening. 

The latest Weather.com forecasts calls for cloudy skies the remainder of this afternoon with only a 30 percent chance of showers after the race has concluded.  The chance of rain leading up to the 2009 Kentucky Derby was 10 percent each hour.

Much of the rain occurred overnight and the heaviest and steadiest of the rainfall had moved down to neighboring Tennessee.

Weather radar showed no precipitation west of the Louisville area and only spotty showers due east and south. 

Friesan Fire had widely been considered the horse to beat in wet muddy conditions.  With a dryer track, the field opens up further.
