2012 Kentucky Derby: Post Time For Kentucky Oaks Pushed Back After Weather Delay

Area thunderstorms created a weather delay at Churchill Downs, but it appears the races are set to get back underway.

The post time for the running of the Kentucky Oaks has been pushed back to 6:20 p.m. ET.

The skies in Louisville remain cloudy, but people have filed back into the seats and races are scheduled to begin soon. The Kentucky Oaks will be the 12th race of the day, and the third after the weather delay.

Storms are expected to be in the area for the rest of the afternoon and into the night.
