Cause to Believe gets a bath after his gallop this morning

Wednesday Kentucky Derby Photos

Date: 05/3/2006

There were no real works today from the Derby or Oaks horses, but many of them were out on the track to stretch their legs. The crowd of fans and horsemen on the backside is really starting to build and you can feel the excitement in the air.

Here are 15 of the Kentucky Derby horses that I caught this morning plus 9 Oaks fillies and one bonus surprise horse at the end. I will add comments for the horses once the morning notes come out.
