With the onset of severe heat in the Louisville area, Churchill Downs has moved back the first post for this weekend's cards to 6:30pm Eastern time, which provides for some Friday Night Lights action under the Twin Spires. Tonight's card is quite strong with good sized fields in all 11 races. Race 4 features a full field of juveniles in a five and a half furlong Maiden Special Weight on the main track.
