The National HBPA wishes you all a safe, fun Kentucky Derby Day on Saturday!

Don't forget that Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra is running in the La Troienne Stakes (Gr. II), which will be run as the sixth event on a 12-race Kentucky Oaks (Gr. I) program at Churchill Downs today. Post time for the La Troienne is 1:26 p.m. Eastern, which means it will be shown live on HRTV but will not be part of Bravo's telecast of the Oaks, which runs from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Eastern.
