The rain cleared out of Louisville, Kentucky, around 6 p.m. April 20, and a dense fog rose on Churchill Downs early Sunday morning and made many trainers, once again, alter their work patterns for the Kentucky Derby (Grade 1) and Longines Kentucky Oaks (Grade 1) contenders.
Bill Mott’s big two consisting of Arkansas Derby (Grade 1) third-place finisher Country House and Tampa Bay Derby and Wood Memorial Stakes winner Tacitus both galloped about 1 1/2 miles during the Derby and Oaks training session.
Tacitus is scheduled to breeze at 7:30 a.m. Monday.
WinStar Farm, China Horse Club, and Starlight Racing’s Improbable also went out for a gallop under regular exercise rider Jose Contreras.
