Derby prep race, special silks add to Final Four hoopla

One sure winner out of the Kentucky- Louisville matchup in the NCAA men's Final Four on Saturday will be Churchill Downs, which owns Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans. In anticipation of the tournament's semifinal round, Fair Grounds decided eight months ago to push the annual Louisiana Derby, a major Kentucky Derby prep race, from Saturday to Sunday, to position it between the semifinals Saturday and the finals Monday.
